I overpaid for mine because it’s Hearts on Fire.

Wow.  I think 1200 NZD is a little high… that is about 1000 USD.  I was quoted $685 for custom made 14k white gold with .33 diamonds (13 stones).  I know yours was for 18k and that gold is a all time high, but that should not be over 300 more.

Mine is a matte finished 14k rose gold with right around fourteen tiny little brown diamonds.  We paid $350 for it.  It was originally over $700, but I used ScoutMob to get 50% off.

I went with a 2 carat eternity band and it was about 4300 with VVS/D stones.

It sounds okay, but you could possibly do better, unless ebay is your only option. I got an eternity band with 2.18 tcw (not sure how many stones), SI1/F diamonds and paid $2k for that and my FH’s band, both 18k gold. Just my ring appraised for almost double what we paid. I do think we got a ridiculous deal that might be otherwise difficult to come across. Went to one of those mass jewelery centers about 45 minutes before closing at the end of their work week just to browse and the guys kept coming down, down, down–we would have been crazy to walk away! I can’t wait to wear the ring when I’m finally married!!

We got a .25 tcw wedding band for $130 USD. It has five stones, and fits my engagement ring perfectly! We got it REALLY on sale though. They were originally charging almost $500. Shows how much they mark up diamonds!

1200 NZD sounds pretty high…but if you love it and can afford it, go for it!

Mine will be a half eternity band in 18 carat white gold, not sure of the size of the diamonds, but it will be $1850 AUD.

Things in Australia/NZ are just more expensive than the US! It seriously sucks.

Don’t forget if you pay to have it insured on shipping, you will have to pay the full duty (GST) on all shipments.

@viv81: We bought my ring on sale for $188.  Original price was $500 at Kohl’s.  It’s just white gold and the diamonds are tiny, but it matches the style of my e-ring.
