Creating an engagement ring with diamond pave on the INSIDE.

The entire diamond industry is an immoral, ad-led con job believed by idiots. That said, I don't want to be the jerk who skimped on the ring. But I certainly don't want to show anyone that I've acquiesced to that nonsense other than her. Help this scrooge design a ring I don't hate. [more inside]

sterling silver ring as a wedding band?

I'm getting married soon, and I'm trying to pick out a ring. I really like the idea of a plain, sterling silver wedding band, but I know next to nothing about jewelry. If you work regularly with silver, or have silver jewelry, can you tell me if you think a silver ring would stand up ok to everyday wear? Would it scratch and tarnish quickly? [more inside]

How weird would it be to wear a wedding ring when I'm unmarried?

I'm a single straight man in my mid 30s. I'm seriously considering buying and wearing a (cheap) wedding band for reasons I'll list out below, but I know it will seem weird when I have to explain to someone that I'm not actually married. I can't gauge how weird, though, so please help. [more inside]

Paris wedding ring shopping?

We are going to be in Paris next week, and want to go wedding ring shopping at a sort of vintage or antique jewellery store. I'm looking for a simple band for my tiny fingers. I'm looking for a nice band for under about $450, used is good. We don't want to go to the Wedding Ring Superstore or wherever. Do you know the perfect place to shop? Ideally, we walk in to a place with a lot of rings, I try on 6 of them, and BAM. job done. Thank you!

Wear my ring around my neck?

I'm about to get married and can already anticipate times in which I will not want the ring on my hand (like when I'm whitewater kayaking, for fear of losing it), but I'll still want it with me. I'm thinking maybe I'll get a simple, sturdy necklace and a little clip of some kind. Any suggestions for said necklace and/or clip? Also will the stainless clip damage 18k gold?
