Well,
I will be shopping for an engagement ring and wedding rings. Can anyone recommend a good and inexpensive jeweler in Cebu City? I will be staying at the Beach Club Hotel on Mactan Island

Thats not true. Probably their boyfriends can't afford to buy them rings thats why. :thumbsup:

I don't mind having an engagement ring and wedding ring at the same time and I'm Filipina. :kidding:

Your right in this vampy :thumbsup:

For rings you can find the best stores in AYALA or SM,
you also can compare prices in there

Got a niece who got engaged last Nov 12. He gave his wife to be (Vietnamese) a 1.3 karat solitaire
diamond ring bought at $6,000. I'm sure one can buy same size/type in SM or Ayala at a lot lesser price.

The wedding will be Sept. next year yet. Quite to far off yet. Here in the Phils, when engaged, marriage happens 3 mos. the latest.

What's the old saying?

Marriage is a three ring affair,
engagement ring,
wedding ring, and
torturing.

I think a lot depends on the clarity and color of the ring (or so I have found out) And you are relying on the honesty of the dealer for that information. That may actually be a bargain (or not) depending on the quality

Given the rate my g/f seems to lose mobile phones I think a modest one will do to start with from overstock.com, no tax which I hate paying and free shipping.

When she comes here she will get something better, then it can be insured!!
