Yup! My ering is from ebay. When we were getting ready to get engaged, we went to several stores and I didn’t find anything I loved. I found an antique ring in rough shape on ebay. It was a solitaire setting. We bought it for 170. I figured that at that price, we could use it to make a mold if it didn’t turn out to be gold. There was a tiny, chipped diamond in the setting, but it was fixable. We spent under 200 repairing, having another diamond set, and polishing my ring. It’s perfect for me. I had the original diamond set in a bracelet, diamond by the yard style.
Shop the antique/vintage section. There are tons of pretty rings there. One thing though, we ended up setting a slightly smaller diamond than I would’ve ideally had because it was all the ring could fit. I didn’t think of that when we were shopping.
