If you can get access to the trade center in Dallas, there's a place called Marriloff. It's the wholesaler to Zales and a few other places. (None of that stupid bs either). They are AWESOME. If you don't have access, you can PM me and I can call the guy for you to let you in.
Nazr Jewelry is awesome. My friend's engagement ring is from there and she just got her wedding band from there as well. Very nice people and very trustworthy. If you go to the one in Lewisville by Vista Ridge Mall, ask for Terry. He's great.
i got my fiancee's from a wholesaler. buy the band only somewhere (we got our band at jared's) then buy the stone from a wholesaler. i went to bova in the world trade center, and got a helluva lot more than i was thinking i could get for the $$ i had to spend. we also got our wedding bands from bova diamond's just a couple weeks ago. great prices, great diamonds, they were just featured on channel 5 as one of the best places locally to buy jewelry. PM me if you'd need help getting into the WTC, i have all my guy's phone numbers.
