One of my favorite stories about jewelry shopping was from a few years ago when my best friend was shopping for an engagement ring. His now-wife wasn't into the whole diamond thing, and had hinted at some of her favorite stones. There's a store in town that specializes in old vintage rings, which was right up her alley. So I went with him to check them out (I had just done my ring shopping about 6 months prior). The store had vintage rings you could buy, or if you really wanted to do something, they could design you a ring from scratch (referencing any pictures you wanted to match, or give them full artistic freedom). He shopped around for a little while in the store, finally picked out a really nice stone, and spoke with their lead designer about crafting a new ring with some vintage flair... got it down to what kind of metals, etc etc.

I had no idea what to expect for price, and neither did he. He was worried though, bc he didn't have a big budget at all. The salesmen went back to crunch the numbers, and we sat up front twiddling our fingers, and he was in a bit of a nervous sweat. The salesmen came back, went over all the details about what stone and size he wanted and all the details of the custom ring. Then he gave the total for the whole thing: $23

Apparently he unexpectedly picked out the cheapest materials.

He bought it without any negotiating.

My friend just proposed to his girlfriend this past saturday. He bought her ring 2 weeks ago, and totally guessed on the size bc he wanted it to be a surprise. He got her a size 10, and it was too big for her thumb

Sure. Nothing wrong with getting them something nice for "Sweetest Day" either.
