*Update*

Unfortunately my flight home on Friday was supposed to be connecting through BWI, and the entire Mid Atlantic is going to get pummeled with hurricane Florence. My company switching me to fly out Thursday night.......so I'm only going to be around tonight.

@2Birds1Stone : That is the busiest day to the year for me workwise.  I will likely not be able to meet up this time.

That's the day I'm supposed to start my new job, so I'll have to play by ear, but I do love those pretzels...and $3 beer is also tempting

Yeah, moving much closer to home, and not far from Addison either. I might actually start biking to work again!

Hey guys. I am thinking about popping the ? soon and I thought I'd come here for Dallas-specific advice. Does anyone have a Ring Guy that is the absolute best? Keep in mind that we'll be keeping the ring modest. I already had that convo with her, and we're on the same page. So, I'd need a dealer or retailer that's not going to ignore what I'm saying or try to upsell me into something I don't want. If you're curious for more details about our situation, I posted it in the recent engagement ring thread:

Sorry, I'm allergic to marriage, so no ring guy to recommend, but good luck with the proposal! Just dont do it publicly which puts her on the spot. :)

I read your thread.  If you are going to involve your significant other in the search, do you want to go ahead and ask her how much she's comfortable with you spending?

I bought used for just over $500 in 2003.  Wife and I are still happily married.  She practiced as a veterinarian and a bigger/gaudier ring would have gotten in the way of her work.   I agree with the threads of buy used or buy on the low end from Costco.
