    Have you tried asking a local store if they can get yellow diamonds for you? Most manufacturers can customize bands/rings, so even if they don't have what you want exactly in the stores, it doesn't mean they can't get it. I shopped at Solomon Brothers and they were very flexible and friendly. While they are based in Atlanta and I was in their showroom, they also have an online website. At whichever online site/store you see a band design you like but with the wrong color diamond, you should just call them up and ask if they can get the yellow ones for you.

    PS. My ring is taking 4 weeks to come in and my DH just 1 week. If you think you may want something more unique or rare allow for more time in ordering just in case. And once you get your ring, don't forget to insure it!

        We saw a few in the stores in Philly. Sam is Irish and we're considering these as well as the posey rings. The selection was MUCH better online. I have a few sites that were really cool saved on my home computer - I will post them later (not on my computer right now).

        For online, I would say to order as early as you decide what you want. Most of the sites we found would do return/exchange if the sizing wasn't right or you didn't like it. If you order early, you'll have time to do that without stress, especially since most Celtic bands can't be sized. For in store, we were told MAX of 8-10 weeks, though usually much earlier. We were also told that most stores got new styles of everything in September.

        Hope that helps!

          Very good to know! It will September before Tom is home ... so maybe we can find "last season" styles at a discount. :-)
