Congrats on finding a girl that can drive the boat like a champ, those are hard to find. My advice would be to stay away from the malls. I was told by an expert that they tend to recieve the lower quality diamonds.

A wise old man once said to me that " A happy wife = a happy life" He also said "a single life = a long and happy life"....lol

There's a guy in Austin named Lake McGuire. Nicknamed the Iceman. I'm on another forum with thousands of posters. Of the hundreds of people on there who have used him, literally no one has anything bad to say or had a negative experience ( its a college football forum where no one ever agrees on anything, except Lake). I bought my wife's wedding and engagement ring from him in the last year and we were extremely happy with the experience. Its a little odd because I've never actually met him, but from the conversations we had, he seems top-notch. Also the rings appraised for well-over what I paid. I understand if you are skeptical, but at least shoot him an email. lake@simplyradiant.com . Tell him Blue referred you.

Did I mention his name is Lake?

Nice angle to save a couple bucks on rock size.

Congratulations! I bought one when in New York and had it shipped down to me, saves on sales tax. Also have had very good experience with Sara at Diamonds direct in Raleigh. She is smart and helpful, you'll save money going there vs other places in Raleigh and you'll enjoy the experience.

I bought my wife's engagement ring at The Diamond Source in Old Town, San Diego. Really, really nicely cut diamonds and good prices compared to anything that comes close in quality. She gets comments on her ring at least once a week and it's not because it's a huge rock or anything.

Or, sounds stupid, but check COSTCO if you're a member.

I bought my ladies ring at Helzberg. Maybe spend more $ ?????

Hell if my lady would ever once drive the boat to tow me, She would have gotten a 2ct instead of the 1.15 and I would change the name of the boat from "She said NO" to "Anything she wants"

I just bought my fiance engagement ring from Shane Co. in St. Louis. I got a great deal on a high quality 1.15ct, had it shipped back to Illinois and saved the sales tax. They have a lifetime warranty policy included that is not tacked on a additional cost, plus if you ever want to up grade you get dollar for dollar with them on trade up without having to spend significantly more. It was a great buying experience, I shopped online, local, and national before I settled with them. Think MCOCD... but in the diamond buying before I knew I found the right diamond.
