    There is a pawn shop that specializes in jewelry. It is called Lonestar, on 118 ave and I think around 122 St. Don’t pay retail! And negotiate! You can get QUITE the ring second hand!

      I love etsy but sometimes you’re waiting 3 months for something so i guess it depends when you wanna get the job done.
      Micheal Hill in Londonderry has great deals. Ask for Tabatha

  3. Blue Nile. You get to choose the diamond itself by shape, size, clarity, colour and cut and then you choose the setting. You get to see what the diamond would look like in the setting, and because there is no middle man, you get reasonable prices. https://www.bluenile.com/ca/

    • I’ve bought a replacement diamond for my engagement ring when I lost the original one and I was thrilled with my purchase. Even my goldsmith was impressed with it:) I’ve purchased diamond earrings from there and another ring. Loved all of them and the appraisals done here was higher than the appraisals received with the items.

  5. It does not have to be Diamond.

    It can be Any precious stone really. The design of the Ring is what makes it.

    I almost bought my wife an Emerald Ring set with very small diamonds on each side for her engagement ring. But I found a similar diamond only ring at a jewelry store that was going under.

    The most famous non diamond engagement ring that I can think of was Lady Diana’s. It was a monstrously huge Sapphire and diamond

    Plus buying a non diamond ring usually gives a larger stone, and is cheaper than the same sized diamond by far. Plus a non diamond set around/flanked by small diamonds looks good as well.

    Maybe her birth stone?

    STAY AWAY from pawn shops. Unless you have a diamond tester, there’s no way to tell if the ring you are looking at is actually diamond

  8. Spence diamonds. You can choose your own diamond. This is great Especially for the fact that your Gf seems to be pretty chill about jewelry.

    When your gf says she doesn’t want anything too flashy she is testing your love for her. Now if you really love her, get your butt out there and buy her the flashiest ring you can’t afford. Take a second job to pay for it. Sell your most cherish thing, be it your sports car, golf clubs, and PUT A RING ON IT to quote Beyonce.

    • Ronald Cook Ronald Cook says:

      Viviane you’re probably right, but why the man bashing? I just believe a man should open the car door for a woman, pull out her chair at dinner, listen intently to her and not try to fix her issues (that’s a tough one I keep working on). I guess you could say I’m old fashioned, or if you prefer, I don’t understand women. But in my opinion, when you point a finger at me, you point 4 at yourself. Men are hard to understand, but how I treat a woman is not how you might think.

      Yeah, this Ronald character is gross. “Testing your love for her”?!? Followed by “Jayne I’m sorry if my post mislead you to think it’s about money. The key word is “cherish”, not “how much?””?!?
      My engagement ring cost 40$ at a pawn shop, and was more than I wanted! I didn’t need a ring, I needed my husband!
      You need to step back and review your misogyny.

  12. People’s, best price and protection plan. Originally was looking at Spence diamonds after being looked down on because we asked for a ring under $1500 and being constantly pushed to buy something more expensive we walked out and went straight to people’s. Better service and amazing quality.

  16. Keep in mind an engagement ring does not have to be a diamond. In fact it is only in the last 100 years or so the diamonds were expected. Wonderful PR work by the DeBeers!

    Perhaps a pearl ring or birthstone ring is what she would prefer. There are lots of gems that are not costly but are gorgeous. Look to see what she wears – that may show you. Many jewelry stores have settings you can buy and then buy the stone.

    Make it unique like your love! Mary Crowley at Crowley’s Jewelers in Kingsway Mall is a personal long time friend. She will work with you to get the right one for your fiance!

    West mount mall has an awesome jewelry store and always have deals and sales going on. The quality of Ben Moss at half the price. Once I found this store, I have gone any where else! (Have 5 daughter’s, a wife and both our mothers living with us, so jewelry is almost always a go to on special occasions)

    What is her heritage??? I received a Claddagh ring. Another option that is NOT a pawn shop is antique jewelry stores. Something with meaning / heritage. Or speak to your family and see if there is a family heirloom that you can pass down from your side. Will mean a lot more than some cheap pawn shop or Walmart ring.

  27. HANDS down see Jerry at Jedco on Jasper ave- had mine specially designed BUT a lot of excellent advice and extremely helpful no matter what your budget- believe me we looked for over a year at almost every store/ chain in Edmonton and surrounding area lol and i couldnt find what i wanted and what my husband wanted BUT when we finally went there I am so glad we did – awesome warranty , cleaning and checks – btw they do a lot of the repairs for the other jewellery stores in Edmonton and area – BUT i do have to say find out what she likes …somehow…through her friends ok one friend that is close too many people in the loop someone will spill the beans – all it takes is another unmarried friend of hers who wants to go “dream shopping” for rings for themselves she will eventually let it out what she wants 😉 good luck

    • they are also competitive price wise – even looking at loose diamonds or gems online they will match as long as your comparing apples to apples – because we did this too – they also offer the same as spence will give the price of the stone for trade in or return http://www.jedcoltd.ca/

      Also. Sounds like she just maybe doesn’t like traditional. So no big gaudy diamond.

      If you wanna work with someone to create new for a fair price. Go see Claudio at Tara jewellers downtown.

  35. Go to Gemvara.com that’s where I ordered mine, you can custom design the ring by picking out band style, metal, stones, including lots of gem stones. I actually designed like six and had my fiance take a look to pick which one and she ended up designing her own. She’s the same way and wanted something she liked rather than an expensive diamond. Was a great experience buying, comes with a one year warranty on settings, and 90 day on fit. Only cost me 660 and it’s something she loves and is proud to show off.

  36. Sonja Mac Sonja Mac says:

    Whatever you do, take your time to make sure it is HER. You do not want her having the conversation with her family or best friend “it’s really pretty and all – it’s just not ME.” Don’t buy a ring until it screams HER. Her personality. You’ll know it when you see it, and it may not even cost much money. I’ve heard, seen and read more glowing reviews from women who speak so lovingly about how perfect the ring is for her, than anything that ever came from a woman who just has a big flashy piece of bling.
