Hi ladies, So SO has told me to start sending him ideas. Here is what I'm thinking so far: - antique styles - cushion cut, most likely, though pear and asscher cut can be amazing - pink sapphires or colored diamonds - 2 carat stone if it's pink sapphire - probably white gold - under $5000 We're both in grad school now so I want to be cognizant of costs and saving money for the future (I can always upgrade like swanky momma of three right?) Any suggestions for websites or stores with reasonable or good prices for antique enagement rings? Is it more cost-effective to buy the stone and ring separately? I've started perusing these few. http://www.estatediamondjewelry.com/ http://www.faycullen.com/ http://antiqueengagementrings.com/Default.aspx http://www.jtv.com http://www.artofplatinum.com Thanks for looking!
