My diamond came from a ring that belonged to my grandmother and the setting came from the jewerly store. The ring that belonged to my grandmother has a lot of diamonds that we have used in other setting over time.

I voted Family Heirloom but that’s not exactly right. The diamond was from his aunt and the band was from his grandma and he had a jeweler put them all together. So it’s not an heirloom but it is all from family.

Timeless and classy…I love that little blue box 🙂

Thanks for the idea, Snowflake! I don’t think my guy gets that it has to be brand new/expensive for me to like it. I like jewelry with “character”

My ring is my fiance’s grandmother’s ring. So family heirloom that we’ll continue to pass down 🙂 I’m not sure where they got it from though!

I got mine from JCPenney. Not sure which category that would fall under, so put “other”.

My ring came from a family friend of FI’s family who is a jeweler. He owns his own small jewelry store and only takes appointments (no store front). The setting is one that this jeweler designed himself and Fiance chose the diamond with his help.

@miss snowflake – i like your position on buying jewelry! it is a snotty thing to say that if it doesn’t come from a jeweler that it says anything about its quality, or the quality of your relationship. OOO, but I guess their karma is overpaying for probably everything in life instead of looking for deals. They’re all diamonds and they’re all beautiful and meaningful 🙂
Mine came from a small local jeweler in my DH’s home town. It’s an antique diamond w/ a new setting.

My center stone is an heirloom (Tiffany, I think) but the setting is new from a jewelry store. Best of both worlds, IMO.

My Fiance got the center stone from a Diamond Broker in NY. He got the stones on the band from a ring that my grandmother left to me, and he had it constructed by a local jewler….all without me knowing (sneaky guy).

My Fiance got my setting at Jared and he bought my diamond at one of the online retailers. Lumera or something like that?

Moissaniteco.com! What a risk, ordering 1. not a diamond 2. on the internet. I was so nervous it would be ugly, defective, or simply not arrive. But it arrived, is gorgeous and of the highest quality. Yay internet. (Researching and reading reviews are a must of course.)

My stone was from a diamond broker via Pricescope and my ring was custom made at a private jeweller’s. No one had exactly what we wanted so we went out and designed it ourselves! Fiance got an incredible quality stone and ring and saved a lot of $$$ going this route. He told me the complete ring ended up appraising for 3x what it cost – Fiance knows I LOVE a bargain and this knowledge makes me love the ring more (if that’s possible)! :).
