    Been dating my girlfriend for awhile now and am going to ask her the question soon, so was looking to buy a ring in the next couple of months. So, any of you guys married or just got engaged? I am looking for advice on the ring, how much you spent, any stores better than the other? I have some people at work that have spent $8k on them but I could put a real nice down payment on a house with that. I was thinking $2k range but not sure. Discuss.

    Dude, down in the city, near the border (Like, near the golf course and co-op) there is an open to the public liquidator. They do diamonds and semi-precious and everything I've seen there is incredible, and cheap. You're in a good area for looking for diamonds - near the Diamond District.

    you guys dont know what you are missing.

    JDC (Jewlery Design Center) a local place here is THE SHIT. you can design your ring from scratch and they can do any price you want.


    my cousin just got one with a .6 solitare for about $2500-3000

    and one of my co-workers just got a 1.0 solitare with one .33 on each side (1.66 total carat) for about $5000

    It all depends on what you want in the ring. Quality vs. Shit. For me, I wanted Quality as its going to be in our family for a long time and I didn't want to skimp out on the goods with her ring. I spent alot on it and had it designed from scratch. Never buy a ring from the case as the quality of it is ridiculous.

    If you want details on what I spent and what I got then PM me.

    here's her ring:
