He got my engagement ring at a factory-direct store called the Jewelry Exchange and we got my wedding band at DeBeers πŸ™‚ 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.

@FireflyT: That is a good point about Blue Nile, however, there are online vendors who will definitely let you all but hold and see the stone with your own eyes. Meaning, Good Old Gold for example, will show you as many photos as you want, magnified to show any inclusions, ASETs, etc, and will even make you videos of stones compared with others. Plus, every stone they put up in their inventory has been hand-selected and personally inspected by their staff, not to mention actually being in-house, which is just like you mentioned an advantage with a local jeweler. GOG isn’t alone in this type of service, either.

Fiance got my stone and setting from GOG. πŸ™‚

My Fiance actually got mine at Costco.  Doesn’t sound like the best place to buy jewelry, but they actually carry high quality at really good prices.  Worth looking into πŸ™‚
