- Wedding: December 2012
So my Fiance and I have been down a looooong road with the engagement ring. We fell in love with the Tiffany Soleste, but not the price tag. So we decided to have it custom made. The jeweller said he would be able to recreate it no problem and we wouldn’t be able to tell the difference…and he was offering it to us at less than half the price at Tiffany’s! GREAT! He said it would take 3-4 weeks….well 4 weeks turned into 5, which turned into 6. Turns out, he wasn’t able to do what he said he would. He agreed to try and redo the setting but wasn’t sure if he could get it done. Well now we’ve decided to get our money back and start over.
We found out yesterday that someone we know used to be a ‘big-wig’ at well-known jeweller’s and can give us a pretty hefty discount on a ring. I’ve been browsing the website and have fallen for a few. Give me your opinions bees!
Ring #1: Actually the 1st I fell in love with when we started ring shopping originally, but thought it was out of our budget (until the new discount!). Ended up loving the Tiffany Soleste more than this one….but I still do LOVE it.
Ring #2: Just found this one online today from the same jeweller. It’s BEAUTIFUL!!! This colour blue has always been my favorite colour, and I just found out that Aquamarine is also FI’s birthstone which is kind of neat. It does still have diamonds on the prongs and around the base, so it’s still ering-ish. Not sure how I feel about the non-traditional aspect of having a gemstone ring though….
Ring #3: My love that I’ve been lusting over and was orginally supposed to have. Don’t know if we can make it work budget-wise…
