    so today I went and tried on some wedding bands to figure out what I like on my finger. I was at the mall so I just went to some of the chain jewelry stores, Gordons and Hannoush.

    Has anyone bought there rings from either of these places and how do you feel about them? Also are there prices competitive with what you would get at a local jewelry store and also how do you feel about the quality.

    Since I will be wearing this ring for the rest of my life, I want a nice ring. Also, they wrote the rings down for me & I saw the prices on the tags, but they gave me a discounted price, I'm assuming because they know I'm shopping and want me to come back.

    I tried a 1 karat, 3/4 eternity band, with the milligrain band, priced at 1205, but she gave me the price of 980, if I bring her card back with me

    the other place I tried, it was called a bostonian, 4 diamonds prong setting, 1/2 carat $995
    and channel set, 1/2 eternity, 1/2 carat 800

    I think my favorite was the first one, but I also like the diamonds with the shared prongs.

    but my real question is where should I go to buy my ring, hahaha

    sorry to ramble!!

      OK Jill, IMO I would NEVER get a ring from a mall. I only say this because they mark their rings WAY up that's the reason they "give you a discount" even with the discount you will more then likely find a better quality diamonds and a place other then the mall. Have you shopped around online yet? Maybe BlueNile or something?

        I'm getting mine from Click the image to open in full size.

        I think the prices you're getting are good IF you like the quality of the diamonds..

          I agree with Tammy the mark up is like 90% on diamonds. I would try to find someone to make it for you. You will save a ton of cash

              I would figure out what you want & then have your local jeweler make it for you - just bring pictures. You will get such better quality diamonds for a fair price this way...the mall stores are a total rip off & their diamonds are never great quality....

              PS> I really like the shared prong bands too! That's what I ended up getting.

                Thanks girls for the advice, I was a little leary about the mall stores as well, but I figured at least it was a good place to try some on to see what I liked.

                I have looked online, A LOT, but wasn't really sure what I liked so it helped to go and try them on, to see what looked good.

                I did check out the site Anny got hers from and saw some that I liked, and I am considering ordering from them.

                There is a also a site Edyta posted that I found some I liked as well.

                Maybe I'll try checking the local jewelers to see what there prices are.

                thanks for the advice!!!
