Thanks everyone! I am new to this site, and appreciate any help I can get on this.

Money is kind of tight after the 2 carat princess cut diamond I just purchased (1:1 ratio) to propose to my girlfriend. (I''ll post a picture of the stone ASAP). I assumed bands would cost around $1000 but I''m quickly learning that the one my sweetheart has her eye on is dramatically more expensive. Anyone know where I should purchase the band I attached? Also any ideas of how much I should pay?

A local jeweler quoted me at $2600 for the band and $250 to set the stone. I am fairly confident that is a fair price, but I would like to cut off some of the price.

Thanks!!!

Thanks. Yes, she definitely has good taste. I found the picture on the Memoire website under the Wedding Band collection.

The model number on the Memoire site is PE7-1. I found a much cheaper version on the Solomon Brothers website, but the diamonds in the ring were about half of the size of the band I posted. The band displayed about has 0.35 Carats.

I will see what Pearlman''s and some other jewelers that I research can do.

i agree that pearlman''s will probably be your best bet, but after doing a little price comparison on memoire rings in general, i also think robbins brothers (www.robbinsbros.com) may offer a good deal. they have stores in california, illinois and texas, but i''m guessing you could order without being in-store.

i wish you well on this - it''s a gorgeous ring!
