Ring question

So please refrain from standard advice of "run", "just shoot yourself", etc. I've been seeing a girl for about 2 years and she drives the boat like a champ. I mean who could stand the thought on losing a chick who can give you great pulls. Anyways who has everyone used for rings. I previously used helzberg for my ex wifes ring (yea I do this alot) and had a piss poor experience with band discoloring, diamonds coming loose, etc. Basically it all seemed like crap. While I like a lil quality in my life I also like money in my pocket so please don't say David Yurman. Looking for a simple 1/2-3/4 c solitaire as shes like 95lbs soaking wet and tiny.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

run away...then shoot yourself.

I always try to buy jewelry from a local, non chain store. Tend to get better quality and better customer service when things go wrong.

Agreed on all points, except post pictures before shooting yourself.

Find a local broker - I would stay away from the national chain type stores.

Just my $.02.

I think we would need to see pictures first to know if this type of behavior is acceptable or not. You are a very fortunate man to find a good woman that will drive the boat. Mine won't drive the boat to save my life.

I bought my wife's ring at Brown Lee and have never had any issues with it at all over 7 years now no discoloring or loose diamonds.

I gave my wife a ring from Walmart, and a magnifying glass. No kidding!

She'd been hounding me for months, to pop the question. She'd had said, size of the ring didn't matter...so I took her word for it.

We later, went to buy her ring together..a.k.a "The Rock" Then she said, she was wrong...SIZE does matter!

Nice angle to save a couple bucks on rock size.

I used a place called Distinctive Diamonds in Indianapolis. Very good service.
