Check out sales around Christmas time! Fiance actually just got home from work and he pre-paid for a ring that’s going to be a part of their Thanksgiving sale at Fred Meyer Jewelers. It’s a 1/5kt rose gold band (GORGEOUS!) and retails for $599, but it is going to be on sale for $199. 

Check out some smaller, local places and also a few of the chain stores. Also, I do know one reliable seller is Overstock. They have an Ebay account, and then obviously their normal website too.

There can certainly be decent options on Ebay. There’s also Overstock as someone else mentioned, and we’ve also looked at Amazon.

Check out your ebay seller.  You want to see close to 100 percent positive feedback with a high number of transactions, ie in the thousands.  Read the comments left by other buyers.

 

Also, JewleryTV has some bargains, jtv.com.  They do have diamonds but they seem more into hi quality cz–their dellenium cut has 100 cuts rather than 58 and it’s stunning and they sell a lot of gemstone rings.  

 

Right now you have till Jan 31st to return it if you don’t like it.

i adore ebay and i think as long as the seller has good feedback (and lots of it) then you a pretty safe. Ebay protects buyers too, and they’ve gone to bat for me a few times already.

With something as thin as a 1mm band, you will hardly see whether it’s a simulant or the real thing (it’s too tiny to see inclusions or cloudiness). I would be more concerned about stones falling out. At least in a store you can buy a warranty for those things because they will fall out of a micropave in time.

@GelaMac:  LOL of course you would think of me 

 @junesommers:  I found some! Not micro-pave and they are a bit wider but it will give you an idea what you can find:

This one is channel set but I thought I’d throw it out there anyway:

Sometimes you can find a good auction that will sell for cheap:

 *Edit*

I just found this one.. not sure your ring size though…

Not sure if you need a setting but you could keep the band and sell the setting?

@junesommers:  you can get something for much less than $600.  i think that seems very high for what you are looking for.

@junesommers:  I have a half eternity band and got it for about half of what that price is – probably about $300. I got it at an independent jeweler where I live. It’s also where we got my stone and setting.
