    Does anyone know a good place to get a platinum wedding ring? My fiance got my engagement ring from Jared several years ago. Now that I'm looking for a platinum wedding ring to go with it, the selection just isn't that good. They have a few rings, but they are so expensive. I really didn't want to pay $2000 for a ring. Unfortunately, a plain band doesn't look right with my ring so it has to have diamonds in the band. So I guess if I have to pay that much I will, but I was just wondering if anyone knows where to get a ring a little cheaper.
    Thanks!

      I think Shane Company is great. They are very reasonable and have outstanding service. I don't know if you have one close by.

      Platinum is VERY expensive right now; all of the metals are. It also doesn't retain it's shine and will need to be re-coated every year or so.

      You might want to look at a white gold band for now and upgrade later if it is more cost effective.

        We got my setting through Diamond Engagement Rings at Adiamor.

        We were really nervous about doing it over the internet, but it is beautiful! I love it and it looks exactly like the picture!

          We got my platinum engagement ring from Jared's as well, and I really want to get my wedding band from there too since I take it in to get cleaned for free there, and I want to have my ring and band saudered together. I feel the same way - Jared's only has a few platinum bands, and none of them interested me, especially for the price! I have decided to go with a white gold band, as they have a much larger selection of those, for a *much* better price. And it matches perfectly...no one will know the difference except you. That is just MHO.

            You could try looking some place that sells estate jewlery.

              I would probably go with the white gold as well since you can't really tell the difference. Later on you can always upgrade it if you want, but I don't think that anyone other than you would know the difference.

                I had to get a platinum band because of my Ering and was shocked by the price given by our jeweler. When I started shopping arround, I found out that he actually gave us the best price since the cost of platinum and gold went up tremendously recently. My hubby also insisted on getting a platinum band and I have to tell you that $2K for a band WITH diamonds doesn't sound too steep. I know that's not the what you were looking for but, it took me a lot of shopping around to realize just how expensive platinum actually is.

                  Hi!
                  I don't think you should be matching the white gold with Platinum. It will look very similar now, but the white gold's color will change with time and then it won't match your engagement ring.

                  My FI got my ering in the diamond district in NY, you can get great deals there but you have to be careful of some worksmanship.... if you're planning on any trip to the NY area prior to your wedding, I would definetely recommend the diamond district bc they can make anything you want for you at a much better price or same price, but better quality.

                  If you're interested, I can send you the store we are dealing with. I'm thrilled with the finished product and have had other jewelrs compliment the worksmanship.

                    I got mine at signed pieces and I think it was less than 2k, it's a platinum diamond eternity ring

                      That's what I am afriad of. So I would rather pay a little more now, rather than have to buy a new ring down the road.

                      I'm definitely interested. That is the PERFECT excuse to visit New York! I appreciate the information!
