I’d check out lab diamonds! They’re diamonds by every account, except they’re made in a lab and not mined. You’ll save a ton of money and the only way anyone would ever know the difference is loooking up the etched serial number. The only downside is resale value – but if you’re looking at resale of your e ring, you probably have bigger issues 😉

lily2018 :  Be careful with Swarovski rings mine tarnished within 3 months- tripple check the metal and dont take rhodium plated as an answer! but as long as the metals high quality they are stunning crystals!

snowbelles :  I would get a similar style to the ring I ended up with- 14 ct white gold and a moissy in a vintage style/oval shape center stone. Something like this:

Maybe this thread can help out anyone with a tighter budget! 😊

My SO is proposing with this 3 carat moissanite and diamond accent stones ring from Etsy! It was $879 before taxes so about $900ish! Based on what I’ve seen here, that is pretty cheap I think 🙂 also recently bought this Amazon cz ring to play around with (its a 6 carat plated yellow gold sterling silver ring) on the lookout though for a 3 to 4 carat cz cushion cut or oval ring to wear around for fun (i love larger stone rings, they make my hand look smaller and thinner lol.)

What a fun thread!

I would say either this pearl gold ring because I really love pearls:

Or this flower ring which also comes with a lab pink sapphire as the center stone:
