Fiance and I are ring shopping all over the place. I was wondering if there will be big price markdowns after Christmas. I know there will be sales but I was wondering what kind of markdowns we might see. What do you guys think?

@Andr0meda: We looked for mine in lots of shops and found that the prices were obscene regardless of sales etc. plus, having worked in a jewellery shop, it became clear to me that you will get much less bling for your money on the highstreet than if you get something made custom. it sounds more pricey but trust me, we are students and have ended up getting waaay more bling for the same amount we would have paid over the counter in a shop. my advice, bugger the sales, look at small independent jewellers and get something made, even if you see exactly what you want in a shop, chances are they can do it for a lot cheaper with the same quality stuff, tell them your budget and they will work with that, no upselling. in fact, we looked in a store yesterday and i did get a bit smug, how they can charge what they do is beyond me but that is the highstreet for you. good luck!
