Helzburg for me, too :). I looked at a ton of jewelry stores, but Helzburg had the ring I fell in love with.

My fiance got mine from Knox Jewelers out of MN but he did it all through email.

My husband did a ton of research prior to buying my ering, including online and local retailers alike (Zales, Jared, Kays, etc etc) and ended up getting my ering from the family jeweler.

With our wedding bands we actually got them from thefacetscollections which is online but based in NYC. For our platinum bands (mine with 11 diamonds) they were the cheapest out of all the zales, jareds, kays, blue nile (expensive!!!) etc etc.

And yes all my diamonds are GIA certified, a must in my book.

FYI I found TheFacetsCollection via PriceScope which was a huge source of info when searching for better prices!!!

My stone and setting came from Ben Bridge. I don’t think my ring is certified or anything. It was on sale due to an inclusion, the cheap price was what sold us.

Diamonds Direct in Raleigh, NC.  Love that place although I had never been there until after he proposed and we went in to perfect the sizing.  I’m sure we’ll buy our bands from there too!

He got my engagement ring at a factory-direct store called the Jewelry Exchange and we got my wedding band at DeBeers 🙂 My wedding band is intricate so I will be wearing my engagement ring on my right hand…I just saw it on a woman tonight when I was out at dinner and I was practically drooling. I can’t wait to wear it!

Mine is from Peoples Jewellers.  I think it might be the Canadian version of Zales…

We got mine at a local jeweler. They were willing to make a custom e-ring (and later two custom wedding bands)

What I don’t like about bluenile and other online retailers is you can’t actually see the diamond in person. If you are getting a diamond that is SI clarity I would be careful because some SI diamonds have flaws that are visible to the eye and others do not. A local jeweler can help you with this and use their expertise to pick one for you. Just buying one online it is more difficult to know.

@cr6zy: On that note; I think it’s interesting that the sales associates at Shane Co don’t get paid on commission! If I hadn’t fallen in love with the ring at Jared’s, I’d have gone there just because the shopping atmosphere seemed a little more laid back and their warranty/trade-in policy is better.
