Any suggestions?
Congrats bro!

I got my fiancées at Ashcroft and Oak. Exceptional customer service. Won't go anywhere else for any jewelry now!

Get you diamond at Blue Nile... best price and quality around. As for the actual ring, you can get a decent one any where.

I haven't read this whole thread, but I just wanted to suggest a local jeweler. And no price is set in stone, don't be afraid to haggle.

Stay away from the chain stores. Their markup is outrageous, even when you are getting 60% off.

Someone recomended the jewlery exchange. Most big cities have places like this. They deal in high volume and you can usually find a good deal.

Also, someone recomended bluenile.com. Another good place. Their reviews are very high. My brother went through them and was completely satisfied.

Also, check Sam's Club or Costco. They sell only higher quality diamonds and you pay very little markup compared to a Kay or Jared. You probably won't find much at a Sam's or Costco smaller than a carat, but you will pay 20-30% lower than the other major retail chains.

Yeah, my girlfriend has a crazy friend who is very picky with rings and that girl would flip if someone went to the mall. They're not horrible, but you can find places elsewhere where you can get a better deal. I think crazy girl creates rings at the Shane Company website (you can create and buy rings there)...

Best place I've found for jewelry is Diamonds Direct.

It may not be a nation wide company, though.. so I'd suggest a local place too.. big name jewelers are usually more pricy

Re: Where is a good place to get an engagement ring at??

Congrats ODogg! Coming up on my first year anniversary, so a lot of this stuff is still fresh in my mind. A few others have mentioned on a national footprint, Sam's club, Costco, Blue nile -- for the diamond itself. I'll list a few places I went to here in Indy but not for sure where else they are available. I went to the following during my search; Jared, Shane Company, Distinctive Diamonds and Reis Nichols.

Good luck!
