The engagement ring of your dreams doesn’t have to have an incredibly high price tag. There are plenty of ways that you and your fiancée can save money on an engagement ring without sacrificing the beauty or quality of the ring. These are the jeweler’s secrets to getting a stunning engagement ring that won’t break the budget:
Choose A Solitaire Diamond
There’s something truly timeless about a gorgeous solitaire diamond engagement ring. A solitaire diamond on a slender gold band will cost less than a ring with a center diamond and a band filled with diamonds or clusters of diamonds around the center stone. A simple and elegant solitaire engagement ring is a lovely traditional choice that will work for almost any budget.
Lab Grown Diamonds Are Affordable And Ethical
If you think of cubic zirconia when you think of lab-grown diamonds, you need to see some more modern lab-grown diamonds. Lab-grown diamonds these days are stunning. They have the same fire, clarity, and sparkle as mined diamonds but cost a fraction of the price. Lab-grown diamonds are also a more ethical choice if that’s important to you and your fiancée. If you’ve been hesitant to buy a diamond engagement ring because of the ethical considerations and the cost, look at some of the gorgeous lab-grown diamond engagement rings available now.
Gemstones Can Be The Star Of The Show
If you and your fiancée want to be unique and not go for a diamond ring, gemstone engagement rings are very on-trend. Sapphires, emeralds, rubies, amethysts, and other colorful gems are having a cultural moment, especially among younger couples. Gemstone rings are affordable for everyone, especially for couples with a limited budget. A gemstone ring with a white gold band with a few diamond chips is a beautiful way to marry traditional and modern engagement ring styles.
Avoid Round Cut Diamonds
Round-cut diamonds may draw your eye, but they will cost you. A round-cut diamond can cost as much as 25% more than any other cut. Since you have to cut away a lot of the surface area of the diamond to make a round shape, it will cost more money to find a diamond that will still have the sparkle and light after it’s been cut. Choosing an oval or a marquis cut can save a lot of money on a brilliant diamond engagement ring.
