If you like the ring from Khols better, then that’s your choice and you shouldn’t be worried what anyone else (besides your SO) thinks. Even if it is your own mother.

That said, since you and your SO like the look of the Littman’s ring, try to find it in a less expensive store and don’t bring anyone along who would object to the “cheap” price. Get that ring and don’t tell anyone what it cost.

It may be that your family and friends expect the ring to be all white and its the colored stones that they object to. Try to find non-diamond, diamond colored side stones. That would keep within expectations and bring down the price.

I like the Kohl’s ring better. But don’t let size be a factor.  My ring is a three stone ring and combined they are 0.33 carats.  But I love it so much.  Get what you like, not what you think you are supposed to like.

Which one is the Kohl’s ring? 

By the way they’re both beautiful.

i like the top ring better, just my personal preference…i don’t like the color of the halo stones on the bottom photos, has nothing to do with the size of the center stone.

I think you go with what you love! I do think you should probably stop asking your friends and family for advice on this purchase…. ultimately it is your boyfriends decision as to the price he is comfortable with and the store that he wants to buy it from.

Why dont you look at a wholesaler jeweller? you can get great deals from them and the ring that you want, often at a cheaper rate. We got my ring from a wholesaler at half the price of what it would have been in a store.

I would try to check out local jewelers. You might be able to find something in your price range that is more what you’re looking for…

i think you should stop bringing people with you and just pick the one you like. don’t worry about their opinions. once you have purchased it and it’s on your finger, they’ll shut up about it. get what you love, and forget everyone else. they arent the ones who will wear it.
