@goldie.girl:  Have you looked into discount/pre-owned sets? they can give you a nicer ring with out costing as much, also try moissyco and etsy, and ebay….i noticed when we searched for my e-ring that the off beaten places  have more selection and better prices….I would also try blue nile….they have tons of great decently priced options….and while 1500 isnt unreasonable, you may be able to get it cheaper somewhere….

It sounds like the setting is the issue here, not the CZ.

Why not invest in an *actual* gold setting and just set a CZ in it to save money on the diamond. The diamond is generally the most expensive part of the ring anyway.

In a few years when you’re more financially stable, you can swap out the CZ in the setting with the diamond you really want.

If he can afford it, you can get a beautiful set fo $1500. I got mine for around $1300 I think. Maybe look into a place like Shane Co? One of my favorite things about it is that I can trade in my diamond. I think we spent about 450 on it, but in the future if I want an 800 diamond we only have to pay 350 for it because my current diamond will trade in for it. So get the setting you want and upgrade the diamond when you can afford it. Plus lifetime cleanings, resizings, rhodium plating on white gold, etc. I’ve loved them, and maybe an idea with a lower budget. A lot of girls love Moissanite which is another great option, extremely beautiful in its own right and also a cheaper option :). I would be just as frustrated in your position too!

@goldie.girl:  Try bluenile they are fabulous….i got the shank part of my ring for like $640, and one identical to it a a jewlery store was about $1800, for just the setting, not just the whole shebang with center just the setting….and many come to where you just have to get a head/center stone set on it….just ask….their customer service rocks…..and they have some of the best diamond prices i found, and an uprgrade policy….
