I’d get nice solitaire diamond from family trusted jewelers in India and then let the spruce design the ring

1. Book return flight to India 2. Buy many rings in India 3. Fly back 4. Give the one your fiancé likes most 5. Sell remaining for substantial difference 6. Profit PS: Generally diamond rings or any form of jewelry in India is much cheaper.

Point noted. But still when i compare online prices, it comes out to be cheaper here. I am looking at Tanishq, maybe I need to try some other site.

Does she want an expensive ring? My hubby bought me beautiful 3ct engagement ring and its just not my thing. He ended up buying me something smaller and practical for everyday. At the end, the ring symbolizes your endless love and I don’t think carat, clarity or size should matter. Just my thoughts!

There’s no judgement, op said the reason was “cause others have a 3-6ct ring”. That’s a concerning reason is all. And I’m not against having expensive things, it’s your money, I’m saying a BTA (whatever that means) buying a $5k Rolex is different from someone pressured into buying a $30k ring. To specifically answer your question OP, yes go to India, I bought my wife a 1ct circle cut (or whatever the circle shape is called) ring from Khan market and the she got it styled here in the US, it was white gold. And it costed me $4k if I recall correctly - it was 2 years back

Confirm your fiancée is comfortable wearing such a large ring. I’d be super embarrassed, and gave my now husband strict upper limits on size etc (though it’s probably a function of social circle too, it would be awkward around the people I hang out with)

You buy this once (in general), I wouldn’t think about money etc while making these decisions, key is buy something that makes her happy

True, what I’m telling myself! But a good 3.5 Carat ring (one diamond) with good clarity seems to be upwards of 30k 🧐
