Engagement Ring?

So I'm feeling the constant nagging pressure of my significant other. I need something shiny to throw at her so she shuts up for a few weeks. Where do I go to buy an engagement ring? I've done my research about cut, clarity, etc., just need to know where to go shopping.

Jim Hansen @ Windy City Diamonds.

THey are in jewelers row. We shopped several places on jewelers row and they were the best for service and price.

We were able to (with never buying anything prior) have our wedding bands custom made, they did everything, finished, cut, put in the stones and even engraved them before they took $1 from us.

I think the motorcycle dealer caries shiny new motorcycles. Buy one of those instead. Go for a ride and re-evaluate your decision.
