I will be proposing to my g/f next month (Aug) and therefore need to have a ring by then. I have a budget of around £1000 although I'm willing to stretch the budget if a good deal is available. Despite having read about the 4 C's, I don't think I can spot the differences between a bad vs good diamond ring. My preference is to get her a platinum diamond ring but don't know if that budget is sufficient.
If you have experience and knowledge on where to the best deals are then please please let me know. I have been told that diamond rings are cheaper in Turkey - is that true? Or are they better in the States given the current favourable exchange rate?
Many thanks in advance for your support.
