complicatedbee:  Where do you live?  My father may be able to help 🙂  He designed and made my ring.  Since he’s a goldsmith by trade, he knows lots of suppliers and vendors that helped my Fiance purchase my diamond for a really good price.  My ring would retail at a store (like Tiffany & Co.) for easy 16k but my Fiance paid under 4k.  I’m sure if you told my father your budget, he will come up with something beautiful!!!

Mine is 1 carat oval stone with halo setting.  In 14k white gold.  SI G color fair cut.  Estimated total weight of diamonds is 1.20

rosecut:  Aww thanks, it’s my favorite. I actually had a diamond Tacori ring when we were married but switched to this when we had a kid and have never looked back! I know it’s not to everyone’s taste but the simplicity, interesting prongs and security are right up my ally. Its from a site called nodeform designs, or nodeformweddings on etsy. It’s very bluegreen sometimes, mostly sage, and actually gets really pale in the sunlight. I added the two recycled diamonds on the sides, but otherwise it’s a stock design for her here: http://nodeform.com/collections/sapphire-rings/products/fair-trade-green-montana-sapphire-bead-set-solitaire-engagement-ring. I stack it with my plain wedding band and a used vintage diamond band I got on etsy, so I think a total of about $700 for the bands…

I just got this beauty yesterday! I already have a diamond engagement ring but I decided I wanted a moissanite as well! This is an unenhanced 6.5mm (1 carat) moissanite on a 6 prong knife edge setting. The ring was around $850-900 with taxes. To be honest I think I got the good moissanite out of the batch because this unenhanced moissanite looks like a forever brilliant.

.75 tcw, it’s a wedding band/engagement ring set (but I’m wearing it all as one and getting a different wedding band). Just under 2k with warrenty. Got it on clearance 🙂 I fell in love with it a few months before getting it, and watched the price drop!
