I think EVERYONE understand that money wins. If I were your bf I would tell the friend that I appreciated his help but he found x ring for $5000 and that I really have to go with the best deal on something this huge. Maybe the friend will match it, maybe not– but he should certainly understand the reasoning there.

yeah i definitely think you should get this setting because you love it and it’s only 400 bucks!! you know?! but let him know that you love it and it’s THE one you swooned you love it and you love all of the specs and name really nit picky things that only this ring would have… the only problem you may run into is he may have already picked out and purchased the ring….

If I were you, I would show the ring to your Boyfriend or Best Friend, then get the specs on it.  Ask him to go to his family/friend jeweler and get a quote for THAT same ring (setting and stone). 

If the price difference is substantial, I think you will have won him over in an instant!

I agree with CorgiTales! That is a huge deal and a huge difference in price. Maybe your jeweler will lower the price if your bf talks to him.

It’s a gorgeous ring at a really good price – I think you should go for it and then, to make sure that the family friend jeweler isn’t left out of the mix, get your bands from him!

Sorry to hear that…that ring was so fabulous!  I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you find one similar at a great price!

My FI’s family has done business with a certain jeweler for a few years.  However, I did my research and pointed him in the direction of a comparable jeweler who had much better prices.  My Fiance simply called his other jeweler, told him what the new jeweler could do, and offered him his business if the original jeweler could match the price.  He ended up not being able to match it, but wasn’t hurt we went somewhere else since we gave him the opportunity to have our business before deciding.
