Some of the best deals you can find are in pawn shops. Not hugely glamorous in terms of locations, but they do have some cracking rings. I saw a stunning 2.75ct TCW cluster ring with a 0.8ct Asscher centre for £2150 recently (insurance value £6k).

@somersetdarling:  omg!! I love Timothy Roe!! I knew him when he was training with the guy who owns Ebony in Chichester. Timothy custom made me three pairs of earrings and a stunning diamond necklace for my birthday. He’s such a lovely man, a brilliant jeweller and his creations are timeless. I just got married in Chichester 😀

I’m a UK bee. My husband bought my ring from overseas. It’s 1.01ct, G, VVS1 princess cut solitaire. My wedding band is .75ct princess cut channel set half eternity bought from the same jeweller. i know if we had bought those rings in the UK we prob couldn’t have afforded them especially with those diamond stats. Going abroad definitely kept the price down.

@MsBeer:  we got ours from Dubai but I’ve got friends that got theirs from canada and seems like they got great quality and a decent price. They got family in canada to purchase their rings for them and they saved quite a bit so I say defo look about while you are out there.

My ring was £1500 from HSamuel. I love my ring but had I known then what I know now about diamond quality etc I would have gone the custom route. Though I probably would have just ended up with the same ring just a little cheaper!! I am having my wedding band custom made in a little independent jeweller in Canterbury

@LilLis:  cool! Mine is from diamonds factory but I saw very similar ones in a couple of shops. I was actually surprised because it’s not a style you really see on the high street but it’s all over Hatton garden!

@MsBeer:  Hi! I just got engaged on saturday and I’m from the uk too 🙂

 

My fiancée ( feels so weird to say that ) got my ring from moissaniteco , it’s a beautiful ring and you really do get more for your money ! At first he was really apprehensive about it because he didn’t know much but as I told him more he was really pleased with it.

 

i have a forever brilliant 1.25 carat stone and from what I saw when we applied for our insurance the total price for the ring for £1250 I think.  That is including shipping also but not sure about that sorry! I know it’s less than your price range but it’s quite close lol.

 

I think think high street stores are a rip! Beaver brooks etc , there all mostly cluster rings claiming it’s this much carat trying to think your getting more but your not really. 

 

Whatever stone you get I wouldn’t go to a high street store , independent stores are wonderful and the other ladies here are right ! 

 

Good of luck with looking anyway and any questions would love to help 🙂

Sorry for the huge pic not sure how to resize on an ipad!

@Audrey2:  Hatton Garden did have some great alternatives. I was looking during the christmas hols last year (engaged christmas eve) I kinda want to go back this year. But I doubt it will happen. No excuse this year and I did get an enagement ring and a wedding ring last year so I’ve had my fair share of jewelry this year!
