      Sooooo...

      I was at work today and mentioned wanting to get a different ring. My partner in sales gave me the name to a whole sale jeweler that she uses. Apparently you can only go to them if someone personally recommends you. She has an amazing ring so that's what led to our convo, and she said (like you gals!) def don't buy retail!

      Theeeen later I was getting the info from her and a client/friend of ours finds out what I'm looking for and very discreetly hands me a card. It has her name underneath a fine jeweler. I look at her with wide eyes (totally not knowing she works for jeweler - DUHHH!!) and she says to go check out both places but she really thinks her boss can get me what I'm looking for way less than RBs would cost.

      So YAYYYYYYY we now have two connections to go check out So excited!!!!! I will def let y'all know what we find out... :)

        I was thinking the same thing. Get it made and get exactly what you want at an affordable price. I got my ring at RB and I love it! I can't find a pic though on the Internet and I don't know what brand it is. My FI picked it out himself. And he did a damn good job, let me tell you!!

          I think both of the rings are very beautiful. I like the Scott Kay ring a lot, and the hidden diamond just makes it even more beautiful.

            While I really like them both, I would personally choose the Scott Kay ring. I like the more simple rings with hidden details that only the person wearing it will notice.

            Plus if I could do my ring all over again, I would definitely choose white gold (mine didn't come in WG). My ring is platinum and it scratches very easily which gives it a duller finish pretty quickly afer a cleaning/buffing. Also, with the cost difference you can put more towards the focus point of the ring - the diamond! Which is a total win win situation

                We had a local jeweler measure my ring finger -- 6 was a little too big, 5 1/2 too tight. The 5 3/4 size we ordered from Blue Nile fit me perfectly. I'm with you on the quality, Pisces -- unreal!

                JamieLynne, your two choices are BEAUTIFUL! The Scott Kay ring really caught my eye though.

                  I'm SO excited you have a couple referrals for the jeweler!!! It's true..a lot of them (esp the wholesale ones) kind of have to be referred to you...you can't just walk in and get a ring. SO damn tricky!! lol! But I'm SO excited to see what they can do for you! I bet you guys will find some gorgeous stones...make sure to take a pic of that Scott Kay setting you're in love w/ to see if they can match it for you.

                  Your ring is going to be beautiful!!! I can't wait 'til it's finally on your finger!
