@Koala Bear: My ring is VERY similar to that and Fiance actually ordered it online.

He went to http://www.adiamor.com

http://www.bluenile.com is another good online retailer. Since they don’t have to keep stores, they have much lower overhead and they pass that savings on.

All the stones are GIA certified also.

The ring appraised for 50% more than he paid, and if he had bought it at tiffany’s he would have paid more than double what he paid online.

The online route is actually really good. They will even allow you to return the ring free of charge if you don’t like it when you get it or it doesn’t appraise for what you think it should.

Here’s my ring:

 

If you want more details about price, etc feel free to PM me.

@Koala Bear: Those sites also sell loose stones. So he could order a loose stone and have it set at a local jeweler.

Best bets to get the biggest bang for your buck are:

1) Avoid large chain stores

2) Avoid high end “brands”

Also make sure that he:

1) Gets a GIA certified stone

2) Gets the stone independently appraised/confirmed to be the same stone that the cert says

3) Get the stone insured!
