Finding the perfect diamond is only half the battle. I've recently found myself in search of a ring, and getting ideas has been tough. I decided to compile this list to help others in the same situation that i'm in. These sites are useful to provide a lot of rings to browse through. I also added some other sites such as insurance providers that I had found.


Please contribute by adding other places to browse rings or other useful sites (insurance, settings .. etc).

Ah, that was comprehensive! Well done! This site is very much US-based but, for whomever is in the UK, a great insurance company is Hiscox.co.uk. For an E X T R E M E L Y reasonable rate, they insure your home + valuables anywhere in the world.

I just switched insurance to them and I'm delighted with my new peace of mind.:praise:

www.the-way-we-were.com (antique styles)
www.antiquejewelryonline.com (antique styles)
www.badiamond.com (great pricing!)
www.boutiquediamonds.com (great pricing, lots of styles)
www.diana.com (gorgeous settings!)

THAT IS MY RING! :) That is the one I like. I saw a similar one by Verragio - but I think the ct weight is smaller. Any good jeweler can make you just what you want. There are probably plenty of guys (or gals)on here who could do just that!

Good luck - and if you find anything - let me know!

Funny, she is still looking. She gets going on it - then gets sidetracked; but, it's getting more critical now w/ her setting wearing away.
