Until I actually saw the stock photo for this ring, I thought I was getting a crazy good deal,  thinking that it was 10k white gold with. 5ctw diamonds, and it looks really blingy irl, , but even still in sterling silver,  for the 75.00 it was on sale for,  I still think I did really well!  The silver is shiny and beautiful.  I tried to pair it with an e ring when I was still engaged, but it didn’t work out/look quite right, so I wear it it as a rhr 🙂

My 7x9mm (around 2 carats) morganite engagement ring with a diamond halo. It was over $1,000 but I do know it was on sale for $600. Fiance told me that I would be proud because he paid LESS than $600 after he haggled with them – I never asked the exact price he paid, because I don’t care, but I am super proud that he got an awesome deal. I am a total bargain shopper and never wanted to spend more than 1k for my ring. I love it and it’s perfect.

My husband used to manage a pawn shop so we got most of the gold and my Center stone through the shop. We have a friend is is a jeweler who custom made my ring for me. It appraises for $15,600 without the bands. I haven’t had it a appraised yet with the bands. He’s into my ring about $3,000.

I wanted rose gold and the twist band. Very cute and less than 1k 🙂

Here’s my 2.5 ct forever brilliant moissanite from moissaniteco.com! Not sure the size of all the accent stones. The center stone upgrade was only $185.. total ring cost after taxes, upgrade, etc was just shy of $1900. Compared to the same sized diamond ring, center stone and accents along with the setting, this is a total bargain! And quite frankly, you can’t tell that this isn’t a diamond! I’ve heard that only trained jewelers who really took a hard look at it would be able to tell.. Couldn’t be happier!

My BF and I decided to go ring shopping together, his aunt gifted us a .59 diamond that was set in an earring. We went to a local jeweler we had heard good things about to look at custom designing a ring or settings. I slipped this setting on my finger and knew it was the one. The jeweler told us that the price would be 1/2 off the tag plus an additional 10%. They set our diamond and added milgrain to the side and under the setting plate all for no additional cost. The ring was appraised for $2800 but only cost us $445! And it’s absolutely perfect. I can’t wait to wear it.
