Check out Diamond Nexus labs.  They are a diamond simulant and they have beautiful rings in your price range.  I have a ring from there, a friend has two rings from there, plus earrings……really good quality and customer service.

I don’t think it’s that important. I personally think what only matters is the style of the ring and if it is what you love. Who cares how big or small the diamond is as long as it is what you wanted and is within your budget?

Ditto Maggie Mae.  My ring is from Diamond Nexus Labs.  It’s a 2ct solitaire, and he paid under a grand for it.  I have size 8.5 fingers, and the 2ct looks enormous on my hand.  Their customer service is phenomenal, and their jewelery has a lifetime guarantee on it.

(I wanted a ring from there because of ethical issues, and I also could not wrap my brain around spending so much money on a ring)

@buttontoes:  Could you explain what you mean by “ethical issues”?

I think it totally depends on what you think looks right on your hand! I wear a 3 1/2 so for me I felt like if I had anything more than a carat I would look like I was playing dress up!! I’m just not a super flashy person and didnt want my hand to be overwhelmed. But I have friends who rock their 3 carat rings beautifully, so I think it depends more on your personality than on your ring size!!

I’d love to hear reviews of created diamonds too! I have my rings already but I would love some nice earrings and there is no way I want to pay diamond prices for them! 🙂

@AudzinLuv:  I don’t have a pic, but have the Cinderella Staircase.  It’s currently on their website.  Center stone 1.24, total weight 2.24.  I don’t have a pic of my ring and tried to upload the image from their website without success.  I think the engagement ring was about $700.00 total.  Their products are gorgeous.  I have a friend who has the Diamond Nexus Tiffany set knife edge, 1.5.  I love their products.

Think there is something to be said for proportion. I have kind of bigger hands and I have sort of a large bone structure. I didn’t want my ring to be lost on me. Have you considered a composite ring? It’s a bunch of little diamonds placed together. That’s what I have and I like how my ring has a modern/Art Deco kind of vibe to it (sorry, don’t have picture). By getting the composite diamonds, groom was able to afford to get me a ring that wouldn’t break his budget, but would also look nice on me. People actually think he spent quite a bit, but I know that he didn’t!
