This ring is my SIL’s. When I asked her about it a few years ago, she said it was a fake and got it from Wal-mart or something. I’m looking for something similar for my temp ring while we are saving for my forever ring. I believe it is 2ct. CZ sterling silver 6 prong. I have searched and searched and can not find something like this that isn’t ridicilous looking or super cheap turn your finger green.
Help please! (Oh, btw, I’ve asked my SIL again recently and since we aren’t on speaking terms, needless to say she won’t respond to FI)

If you go to the Walmart jewelry counter, you will see BEAUTIFUL e-rings priced under $100 – all fake but not fake-looking. You can also look online, but you won’t be able to get a real-life visual.

@lovelyMsValentine: If you are looking for a beautiful cz and sterling silver ring, I would suggest tradecraft on etsy. I don’t know of she has a setting just like your SIL’s, but she does have beautiful pieces and is awesome to work with.

@lovelyMsValentine: Do you really want to wear something that big while you’re waiting for your forever ring? I only ask because I’d feel weird personally if people constantly asked if it was real or admired my “huge diamond”. I’d probably get something more inconspicuous so that I didn’t have tongues wagging. But that’s just me.
HSN has some reasonably priced rings with good reviews:

@lovelyMsValentine: A lot of Bees find theirs with Berricle. I would also suggest Amazon.

@lovelyMsValentine: Have you looked online at Berricle rings? Quite a few bees have Berricles as stunt/vacation rings.

@canarydiamond: Lol, yeah I don’t mind wearing something that big until I get my “real” ring. Which will still be a mossy, so it won’t be a “real” diamond even then. FI and I could never afford a 2 carat diamond and I don’t like the idea of blood diamonds and all the jazz. I don’t plan on pretending that its real, I’ll flat out tell people it’s fake, doesn’t bother me a bit. I have a white gold diamond inconspicuous ring and I just don’t like it. You only live once, KWIM? I would rather look down at my finger and see something I love, even if its “fake”, than staring at something I really don’t like. That may make me a brat, but idc. 😛

@somethingaquamarine: I have looked at Berricle, but for some reason I didn’t like their selection. I’ll go look again and see if a different search option pulls up anything different.
@MsW-to-MrsM: I’ve been to my Wal-mart and mine must suck! They don’t have any solitares and if they do they are diamonds and tinnnnnyyy. I looked on-line and found one that I think might work, but I can’t get a side view and from the top i don’t love it.
You ladies are great! I love the bee!

I would look for a ring that is different than your SIL’s. Why would you want to get a similar ring?

These are two I found on amazon that seemed similar…. the first is a 2ct CZ for $24.95 and the second is a 1.25ct CZ for $14.99.

@lovelyMsValentine: Actually, you’re right. I took a look and didn’t like anything either. I would also suggest Kohl’s, Overstock, and Macy’s.

@mrsmay07: me too, tradecraft is excellent.

Berricle.com has amazing rings for great prices. I have one set of rings from them and my mom has one. She has worn hers everyday for a year and they look like new!

@canarydiamond: I dont feel 2 carat is that huge. I once felt it was enormous but now that I wear one I feel like its just the right size :).
@lovelyMsValentine: OP what canary says does have a point though. You may not want to wear a 2 carat stand in if you expect you’ll be replacing it with a smaller stone. I view my stone as a small iceburg and its big but I’ve gotten used to it. I dont know if it was my stand in if I’d want my real ring smaller. My stand in ring is an amethyst aquamarine 3 stone with flanking diamonds, and my actual ring a 2.36 carat sapphire cut like a 2 carat diamond with diamonds. You get used to size pretty quick and weight as well. It may feel weird going down a size when you replace the stand in.

@dewingedpixie: Isn’t yours a pretty purple sapphire? If I am thinking of the right one, it’s gorgeous.
In general, a good quality 2 ct diamond will cost $30K+ so I think that many people consider it quite a large rock.
