    Ugh, hate when that happens, really pretty ring you had you're eye on too, but you know, maybe there is something even better waiting for you to discover it :twisted2:

    hahaha I hope so!
    I do have the problem that I’m shopping with NZ $$ AND I also probably have enough rings given I never wear anything other than my wedding set on my left hand and max 2-3 on my right. And I’m not much for lots of change.
    And yet, I can’t stop looking at pretty shiny things :P2

    @foxinsox, it's a definite sickness, although with my latest diamond I haven't had the desire to look at all. Granted haven't had it that long either but I think this will keep me happy for a while.

    There is most definitely a lot on eBay! And the hunt can be fun :) The very first day I decided to search for an e-ring on ebay, there was a 0.85ct mine cut solitaire for $900. Of course as ten minutes after I decided to approach my fiancee about it, somone bought it :(

    From the same shop foxinsox mentioned... This is not typical, but I think it is really delicate and pretty with still a lot of finger coverage!

    A little more traditional. And leaves a good $450 for a band...
    https://www.etsy.com/listing/459202306/14k-gold-diamond-wedding-engagement?ref=related-2

    The Ritani piece on Loupetroop is classic.

    The 4 stone OEC ring posted in my personal favorite. Such impeccable craftsmanship! Though maybe not too typical of an e-ring.

    This is a bit above your budget, but a french cut cluster? So cool!

    Some final offerings from fortekitty and then I will leave you be.

    This is my fave so far, but I am a sucker for antique rings. You could pair with a simple band for $1500.
    https://loupetroop.com/listings/rings/0-dot-64ct-oec-ring-sz-6-dot-75

    A super cheap but classic token set. An option if you want to save up for something more later, or, for this price, buy a small, beautifully cut diamond to replace the one here.

    Lastly, out of budget, but classic and beautiful and big (and definitely looks way more expensive...)

    This is a fun search! A few more:


    https://ivyandrose.com/products/2-c...allerina-cluster-cocktail-ring-white-gold-2ct

    https://ivyandrose.com/products/1-3...-cocktail-ring-art-deco-big-statement-antique a bit over budget but I am not sure a band would be neccessary

    https://ivyandrose.com/products/g-v...ring-18k-329bcf97-ee16-465c-a1e1-43318d8db634 different with sapphires but eye catching

    https://ivyandrose.com/products/1-4...-diamond-engagement-ring-double-halo-cocktail 11.2mm*7.2mm is pretty good finger coverage, I would double check about the centre diamond being eye clean though

    I would order an ideal cut diamond from Bluenile or other vendor, I color, slightly under 1/2 carat in 6 prong white gold setting and matching white gold band. You should be able to get both for around 1500.
