Blimey again

Maybe that eternity ring will be on hold then (perhaps I'll be waiting for an actual eternity )

More diamonds means less gold necessary

I saw some nice eternity rings at Manor... "sergio ferris" collection, but don't expect anything under Chf. 1,000

(if mrs. G is reading this , no I didn't buy anything )





Weissgold-Ringe mit Brillanten sertiert, ab Fr. 1190.- bis Fr. 3290.-. Alles von Sergio Ferris bei Manor.

Crikey, I'm amazed that you wouldn't get a ring for less than 500 ..... is that really true? My husband and I have white gold rings - his cost 275CHF - mine was less because it's much narrower ....
I was fairly surprised too. But having looked at how much we paid for our rings 20 years ago, and how much the gold price has changed since then... it seems reasonable.

Ok, things are not so bad. We r only looking for a ring for my husband-to-be - so for 1 ring. I know its stupid to compare countries but in Russia I for sure could buy any golden ring for less than 300 CHF of any superbest quality. Another problem is choice - I just dont know where jewellery shops are. In Moscow region in the village I live there are 6 on the street I used to live. We have just moved to the region - dont know anybody to ask for advice
A lot of gold sold in Russia is 14ct or even 9ct, here it is 18ct. You will not buy gold for less than Chf 50.--per gram (100% pure gold, so a 18ct ring is only 75% gold) but then there is 25% other metal in the ring to pay for, plus all the assocxiated costs of finacing the intial 1kg purchase, forging, workjmanship, etc etc, so 18ct (75%) gold is going to cost somewhere around Sfr 60-80 per gram.

On top of this you need to add shop overheads etc and then of course marketing costs if it's a brand name etc.

Try Manor or a big Migros, they will be cheapest but not so nice.

Dear members, badly need your help!
Our wedding is on friday - we still havent found a wedding ring for my husband-to-be. We want a simple plane ring from yellow, white gold or palladiun, without any decorations. The only problem -we d like that it costs less than 500 CHF Is it possible?
Could you please recommend jewellery shops in Lake geneva region (we live between Lausanne and Geneva) or in Zurich (our wedding ceremony is there).
Many thanks in advance!
I would be astonished if you got anything but matching beer can pull tabs for that price in Geneva.

Re: Very urgent - where to buy wedding rings

I assume the OP got hitched already.

Just a tip for those who aren't yet, there is a good jeweler in Pontalier, just across the border in France. In fact there are two good ones, on the main shopping ave. I got my wedding band just under 300Euros there and a diamond engagement ring, too. I think that time it was more than twice as much to pay for those in CH and the designs were prettier over at Frogs, too. Classier.

Nobody is complaining, so I suppose they are still "at it." - Congratulations on passing your first week together!

Re: Very urgent - where to buy wedding rings

Thanks to all members for help and support. I found this forum to be very useful
Finally the day before marriage we went to Christ (related to Coop and not so expensive) and ordered our alliances (2500 CHF for both).
Christ needed 1 week to make rings ready so we also bought a silver ring for my husband for 75 CHF(of quite a good quality) which we used during the ceremony. This can be a super variant for a budget marriage.

There also you can find a ring from 18 carat gold for 500 CHF http://www.christ-swiss.ch/en/jewelry/combinationrings

Re: Very urgent - where to buy wedding rings

Hi

You can try gold shops owned by Srilankans, some are around Joesofstrasse, neugasse, where you can find nice rings and would cost less than 500chf as only the gold weight is billed.
