    With a 300-600 budget I would recommend you buy a nice looking wedding band. You can always get a diamond ring later in your marriage.

    GIA is the body who sets the standards and the diamond is rated on those standards.

    Look on Craigslist. Type in engagement ring, then set the price parameters to $1 for the low and $600 for the high and you will see a bunch of them for sale.

    Get a simple diamond ring. Have it soldiered to a wedding band you can buy just before the wedding.


    My wife has the $300 pawn shop ring and my grandmothers wedding band as well as a band with multiple diamonds combined into 1 ring.

    Being a long time married guy, Ill give you one good piece of advice that was given to me, never go to bed mad at each other.
    Talk it out right then, or agree to discuss it in the morning.

    And yes, my discussion of Shane Company was inaccurate. My recollection was not of Shane Company at all, but of another large retail company.

    My granddaughter enjoyed picking out her diamond ear rings.
    (I promised here I would buy her some when she got older)

    I went to Shane company, paid too much but paid it off with no interest in less than a year.
    Came with a warranty and they're already replaced a loose diamond and will be re-plating it for free when I take the time to go over......there....ugh I hate Beaverton.

    The price was very ehh, but I like not paying to get anything done to it for (hopefully) the rest of my(our) life unless they bubblegum down

    When I got married ~20 years ago I proposed with a $10 band then took her with me to pick out a ring. We went to Zales, a couple other local stores, Fred Meyers and of course she fell in love with the $7500 platnum wedding set from Zales which was way over what I could afford. We found the same platnum setting with a larger diamond at a pawn shop for $2500. I went back later and talked them down to $1750. I gave the $5750 difference plus a much bigger wad to a divorce lawyer 4 years later.
