Q&A: Experience Shopping for a White Gold or Platinum Five-Stone Ring

The following is a real email conversation between The Diamond Pro and a reader just like you who contacted us. Personal information is always removed. Learn from these posts, or contact us yourself to get free personalized help.

I am 80 years old and will be getting remarried in a couple of months. I would like to get a nice ring but am living on a fixed budget and cannot spend too much on a ring.

I would like a ring with two large diamonds flanked by two smaller diamonds. These represent my fiance and myself plus our two daughters. The ring would be in white gold or platinum (whichever is cheaper) and the ring size is 4.5. What would this ring cost? Thank you for your help.

The ring you have in mind is a bit unusual. I think you would have to have it custom made. I suggest contacting www.jamesallen.com and www.bluenile.com and asking them what their terms would be for creating such type of ring. Then we can pick out the best diamonds for it.

Thanks for your help. What do you think of Jewelers Exchange? They advertise a lot in my area saying that they have the best diamonds at the best price.

I just placed an order with James Allen for a five stone ring. Thank you for your help.

You’re welcome, I’m glad I could help.
