    I would also consider Ritani. We recently went back to them when I lost my engagement and wedding rings and they were wonderful, as always. They were prompt, empathetic, and didn’t try to sell us on the biggest, most expensive stone. Similar to James Allen, they too can order HD photos of the diamonds, as well as videos. We also received 6 months of free ring insurance in case this gal loses her ring again…

    Get what will make your heart sing will you look at it as well as what will make you comfortable financially. My ring was over $5000 but under $10000, I only know this because I insured it (I did not pick out my ring).

    My fiancé got a really  good round diamond solitaire which is a color E and the cut and clarity is beyond gorgeous. My setting is platinum with pave diamonds. I absolutely love my ring but I also would’ve loved a white gold band also. He picked the ring because he thought it suited me (he knows me well) and he was thinking about getting something really nice to use for possible future upgrading (he sees it as an investment 😂)

    What are your fiancé’s thoughts about the cost of the ring?

    Our budget was 3k. He paid $2,300 total at a brick & mortar but the sticker price was $4,400. The style is discontinued & there was an epic sale on top of the clearance price cut. He ended up getting it for 50% off the sticker which is more like the wholesale price the store paid for it.

    there are tons of deals out there. Check out outlets if you don’t mind a chain store. I personally didn’t go to an outlet but my cousin got her ring from a Jared outlet and had similar luck to ours with her lovely. Had we not caught this deal I would of went to the Jared outlet because she had such a good experience with them  

     

    Best of luck Bee!
