Would also like to add I would want like will white gold real gold overall or even real silver (not a pro in jewelry), I just want to invest in something worth it.

Thank in advance!

basically you are going to have to decide if you want some Chinese made stuff from Zales, Kay, or some other "Mall" jeweler or you are going to have to pay big bucks for something nice. You can search for diamonds on pricescope.com. I haven't found a resource for rings though. Buying stuff from China just sickens me. Especially with how they help North Korea. I know you can't avoid it, but I would like to with a major purchase like this.

Thanks for the post see before here in my area their was a lot of competition and you can basically haggle a price, but those big stores Zales and Kays are overpriced (although sometimes their is rare deals), but I know I won't find anything other than 0 APR which I want a good price overall.. It is sad majority of the stuff is made in China I don't mind spending some $$$ in real actual gold I saw Amazon I saw some deals under $200 bucks some with great reviews. It seems it would be my best place to purchase.

If $200 is your price range you aren't getting much. Silver at best with a CZ diamond. I recently got an engagement ring at Mervis and paid close to $5k for an 18k gold setting and almost 1k oval cut diamond. That was with a partial trade! Oval cut is a great value they are less than the same size round cut and actually look bigger on the finger. Everyone who sees her ring thinks it is way over a carat.

Not sure if one is nearby or if you're a member, but Costco is also a good place to check out.
Several members have recommended Costco because their markup is a lot less then "regular" outlets.

Thanks everyone for the input will check bluenile and Costco. I last time saw their jewelry and was gorgeous, but man was it pricey, but I will check it again and see if I can find a good deal. once again thanks everyone!
