Here is mine!

Centre stone is a .73 transitional cut from jbeg. g colour, sI3 (amazingly, totally eye clean!) and ridiculously sparkly! the setting is another .25 carats made by sundarigems on etsy with f - g melee. i don't know the exact cost, but i believe the two together (before taxes, shipping and setting costs) were around 3300.00.

I actually got 2 engagement rings the day my SO proposed a month ago! :bigsmile: One is to satisfy my need for bling, one for when I'm working outdoors for my job. Both were estate pieces (I loves me some vintage) and even together they cost far far less than $5k. img_0644.jpg

I helped my best friend pick out her e-ring. She had a $1500 budget, so way under 5k. This is what she got for $1200 from James Allen.

Thank you Junebug and Niel! I may start a thread on my ring. I really love it and while it's not everyone's cup of tea, I love it and have fun wearing it! I had the bands soldered to the halo and love having one ring instead of 3!

Now that I have found this thread, here comes my maternity ring. I found a stone off Ebay. It is a 1.48 K SI1 (due to the tiny (visible only with loupe) chip on the girdle) antique cushion with beautiful facetting.


I got it set in a custom milgrained setting of unplated 18k white gold and it all came out just shy of usd 2500. Appraisal came back at usd 9300 and the pawn shops already offered me double the price I paid.

One of my own purchases from way back when I decided I would get my own e-ring. Custom made nothing special but I wanted yellow diamonds. .20 princess cut carat (forget specs) with a total of 8 round yellow .10 carat diamonds on a 14k white gold cathedral mount setting. Price way back when was $3000 USD.

Ok, so this purchase is still so new that it has only just shipped TODAY, but this is my new 0.8ct JSI2 ideal MRB from GOG. Stone, setting & international shipping came to just under US$3000! Can't wait to see what she looks like on my finger! :naughty:

...although, now that I think about it, my current ering is technically a better bargain since I got it for free (heirloom). :tongue:

Oh how did I miss this! That's just perfection on your hand. Looks huge and well made. I would have assumed more!

Not an ering but technically could be. My five stone graduated OEC ring; I collected the stones and ERD made the setting.
