Well I think it is about time for me to take the plunge. Can anyone recommend a jeweler in the area? Looking to put something on my girlfirend's finger in the next few months and have no clue where to look in the area.

If anyone saw the other post I made about this topic you already know this, but it was funny to me when I reread this one. I actually ended up buying a gumball machine like you see at the mall and rigged it so her ring would come out. Also ended up with a ring a bit bigger than originally planned.

Heck no, she drilled me enough times with exactly what she wanted for me to know. Not only did she get what she wanted, she got an even bigger stone that she had hoped for. Not by much, but a little bit.

I agree with that for the most part. Like I said, I lucked out with the deal I got at Smyth. Similar stones were actually more expensive online. So sometimes the "name brand" store will come through.
I agree that it does not matter where it comes from, you just have to know what you are getting. Now that I have cert. and stone in hand who cares where it came from...
