  1. WriterWriter, I don't think they were trying to scare you or push you to buy their items. I think it was more that you mentioned concern about the sparkle and looking cheap, so it was put on the table that someone else could offer you a ring in the same price range. They could probably email you pictures so you could see it..it's hard to tell what jewelry looks like from stock pictures on the computer screen.
  2. I don't know about other insurance companies, but I know the company I work for won't insure a clarity enhanced diamond, so that might be something to consider too.
  3. K, then I'll just keep looking till I find what I want..and we can afford it, haha. Thanks for your help guys-I really appreciate it!
  4. Sorry, I'm not very good at explaining things! The guy at the jewelry store made it sound like to get a diamond ring in a half bezel setting that I like would be super expensive b/c of the work involved finding the exact diamond to fit, and then setting it, b/c it's hard to do. And, since he already had 2 half bezel rings that were somewhat similar, I kind of got the impression he thought I should just choose from them, instead of incurring the extra expense of ordering specifically what I want. I just kind of wondered about it..it seemed to me that if he could offer me a certain style, for say, $700 and it has extras on it I don't want, couldn't I find that style w/out the extras, for $700? And if it is going to be that much more expensive, I'd end up sticking w/moissanite, since I already have one, and I know I can get the setting I want.
  5. Is that a pretty rare setting or hard to do? I don't see very much when I look on the internet. I'd originally come across it while dinking around looking at moissanite rings, (I already have a 3 stone moissanite I wear on my right hand) and decided to look for it in a diamond ring but boy is it hard to find! We can't afford very much, so I'm sure that contributes to why. We were Christmas shopping yesterday, and my husband went into a store to look for something for me, so I wandered into a jewelry store, and decided to browse. I asked about a plain semi bezel, and they had 2 but w/extra stones on the sides and swirly bands etc. I asked about ordering specifically what I'm looking for, and the guy helping me said they have a big book of settings, but the trick is to find the exact stone that will fit, which is really hard. I had him write down the sku of one of the rings I looked at anyway, and we didn't have time to go to the other 3 jewelry stores to ask. So, my question is, is a plain semi bezel diamond ring doing to be pie in the sky for me pricewise, should I visit a few more stores to see what they say, or just get the moissanite b/c it's something we'd probably be able to afford sooner? I've got a DNL Dreambook that has some in there I like, but I'm just so leery of ordering from them.
  6. Just curious how the proposal went with the penguins and all..cute idea, and I'm glad the aquarium worked with you on it. Neil's right-the zoo missed out on a HUGE marketing tool!
