After reading this thread, I decided I needed a college ring. I am doing diamonds and 14k pink gold, and it will end up being cheaper than what you have been quoted. Have you contacted Poppyseed?
part of the reason our quotes are coming in high is because we are really getting 3 rings in one. One ring would be a breeze!! I'm going to see how the quotes come in that are already in the works before I start round 3, lol.
Diamonds and pink gold sounds lovely!! Congratulations!!!
