I have a very unique ring: it’s a tension ring. it’s Rose Gold (pink – goes better with my skin tone) and it’s by Kretchmer.
The bellow pictures aren’t exactly what my ring looks like. It’s a solitare don’t know the cut but it’s circularish….very reflective cut. And it has five little tiny diamonds on each side of the diamond in the band.

My wedding band is from blue nile, and my ering is from a local jeweler who specializes in antiques–Radcliffes in Baltimore. My husband’s wedding band came from ebay, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with it (all $38 of it!)

We got my ring at a local jewelery store, when you go with a larger chain jewelery store, keep in mind you’re paying for their marketing and mall placing. Try going to a local reputable place and make sure you do your research. When I took my ring in the other day to get resized, they resized it, cleaned it, re-dipped it (its white gold) all while I just casually chatted with the jewelers, and all for free. They’re customer services is absolutely amazing and we are definitely going there for our wedding bands. If you happen to be near the Las Vegas area it’s called Tower of Jewels.

Seattle Diamonds. You can find a really reputable jeweler in your area using findmyjeweler.com. That’s how we found SD and we LOVE them!

My Fiance bought the diamond one place somewhere in DC and then he found the setting at a local jeweler just down the street from where we live. He said he thought working with an independent jeweler was the best

All of our rings are from Helzberg Diamonds. My fiance got my engagement ring and wedding band from there, so we’re planning on purchasing his wedding band from there. Our experiences with the local Helzberg has been wonderful. Because of that, any future jewelry purchases we plan on making (including his engagement ring in the next 2 months) will be done with Helzberg. 🙂

I definitely recommend looking at Blue Nile or Union Diamond for a center stone! They have prices that aren’t going to rip you off, and they are good quality! Mr. Buttons didn’t buy his from there, but he was about to and they came recommended by my old boss (a jewelry buyer).

He got it from Doyle and Doyle here in NY (they also have a website). I wanted an estate/vintage ring, and they have a lot of affordable, different stuff.

My Fiance had my e-ring custom made by Fay Cullen. We live in CT, but it’s a jeweler located in North Miami, Florida. We were a little nervous to buy a ring online that I hadn’t tried on, but the ring came out even better than we had expected.

My ring came from a local jewelry store, but it’s a Kirk Kara design. I wanted a ring with sapphires and had a hard time finding something I was in love with. I eventually found Kirk Kara and just fell in love with ALL of his designs. We did try other stores like Kays, Zales etc b/c I figured the KK ring would be way out of our budget…..turns out I got exactly what I wanted!!!

Mine came from a local jeweler in NYC, Marissa Perry. They had a lot of really unique vintage settings, but slightly updated. I love that everyone thinks its an art deco ring – but shinier!
If you’re very interested in an eco-friendly ring though, the clay pot in brooklyn has an online store and a lot of very unusual settings. We looked at some beautiful styles there too.
