There's literally no limit to how much money you can spend on an engagement ring. When Mark Zuckerberg got married recently, the New York Post complained that he'd probably paid "just $25,000" for the ruby ring he gave bride Priscilla Chan. But just because you don't happen to have the measly, insignificant sum of $25,000 wedged in between your couch cushions doesn't mean you're doomed to fishing a ring out of a Cracker Jack box. Above, we've pulled together nine rings for $1000 and under, all sold or designed by New York City jewelers. As with most things wedding, if you're willing to go non-traditional, you can save a bundle. Just don't tell anyone at the Post.
