Hello all,

Looking again at rings , the timing feels better this time, and am looking at rings again.

Looks like the past few months prices have went up significantly , however my budget hasn't.

I am looking for a .85-1.2c princess ideal/excellent cut with color from F, G, or H, Possibly an I.. VS1 or VS2.

Budget ~$5500 with setting.


This is what I found that I really like however it goes over my budget at Whiteflash since I have to pay $600 in texas tax. :( So still looking for good deals with aset images.. Maybe look at Bluenile, or Jamesallen?

This is the stone I liked, what do you think?

Setting - These are the two I liked...
http://www.whiteflash.com/engagement-rings/diamond-settings/allegro-in-d-diamond-engagement-ring-159.htm
http://www.whiteflash.com/engagement-rings/diamond-settings/diamond-braid-diamond-engagement-ring-120.htm

Also considering getting a .75-.9c stone and spend $3500 now.. and upgrade maybe in a year or two from now.. so possibly a good upgrade policy in place might help, however I dont see myself spending over 2x the amount at some sites to upgrade. I think i covered everything let me know if theres anything I missed! Thanks

Looks like a beautiful stone. I would live chat with WF about the preferred stone and setting (if you want to upgrade I'd go with the allegro as with a halo ring it will be very hard to modify in the future). They will hopefully give you a bit more of a discount since you are buying both and are a PSer. Just ask and see what they can do for you!

Nice, those stones look good and at a much better price. Would just depend on aset but promising at 1000 less. That first setting is the one I like from ja as well. Good eye ;-) will have to see if they will do another aset for me as don't know if they will do since I req some about 6 months ago.

Yes, they will do asset for you even though you've done it before. I would put them on hold in the mean time if you are considering them at all :appl:
