Hey all, so I posted 2 weeks ago about going ring shopping for the ring I absolutely love but it did not go to well. We went on Tuesday to look at it ( it had not arrived at the store, so they said they will call when it arrives) , well they called SO two days later and they told him that they can set the stone( already have one) but the smallest size they have in the ring is a 6 and im a 3.75. So it would have to be made custom and they qouted him 3600 and that is not in his budget, so low and behold iam not getting the ring. I’am totally bummed out but understand that he can not afford it, i was just hoping it would be way less to make ugh

Could you try to get a quote from another jeweler? Some independent jewelers will be willing to cut some of the price if you can bring in some old gold to put towards the cost.
It’s great that you and you SO are on the same page and hopefully you’ll find the right ring soon! (And darn your fingers are tiny!)

Can you contribute to the purchase by adding some of your money?

plum_pudding: I have not thought of going to a different jewerly store and I will definitely see if independant jewelers can cut down the cost and yes I know lol, I wish they were bigger xD Thanks for the advice [;
Horseradish: I would love to but my SO would be very upset about not being able to pay for it himself ( very traditional in that sense)
