Engagement Ring Shopping: Tips To Save Money

Engagement Ring Shopping: Tips To Save Money

An engagement ring is an exciting yet scary purchase. You want the ring to be perfect since it will represent your love. We know it's easy to romanticize the process; an engagement ring is a significant expense you want to get right. Whether shopping for rings together or buying them solo, here are some tips for finding the right match. 

Consider Your Shape and Band 

Picking out what diamond shape your significant other would love is scary. Ask them what their dream ring looks like, making it easier for you in the long run. These details include band color, carat count, diamond cut, and more. Every shape has a different price per carat - some cuts are a bit more expensive than others. Research ring cuts and find two styles that suit your significant other, or that you know they would like. Engagement rings are traditionally made from yellow or white gold, silver, or platinum. Rose gold has gained more popularity lately as a more modern option. Consider your lifestyle, aesthetic, and budget for some metals that scratch or wear down easier than others.

Pick Your Carat Size

This is the most pricey part of finding the right engagement ring. Some prefer a large stone, whereas others may want something less noticeable. Your significant other should know the stone size they'd pick, which is an essential factor in ring shopping - believe us, only some people want a huge diamond. Once you find the right size, color, and clarity, this can be easily tweaked to fit within your budget. Save costs by buying a less standard carat size. Diamond prices are also determined by popularity. 

Decide On Your Cut and Clarity

You can save money by purchasing the lowest-color diamond that will remain colorless to the naked eye. This also goes for clarity - opting for the lowest clarity diamond can save you money. However, never sacrifice the quality of the cut of the diamond. The cut is a significant factor in the sparkle of the diamond. If an expensive, rough diamond is cut poorly, it will look worse than a smaller diamond cut perfectly.

Ways You Could Be Putting Your Ring At Risk

Ways You Could Be Putting Your Ring At Risk

Rings are top pieces of jewelry that give your fingers a polished look you didn't even know they needed. In other cases, rings can visually represent something special shared between couples, friends, or family. In this case, you'd want this ring to last as long as possible or even for a lifetime. The only way this can happen is by caring for it.  Keep reading to learn more about this. 


By Swimming

Putting your ring in water all the time is one of the fastest ways to damage your ring. If the ring is non-tarnish, then water might not damage it. However, swimming with the ring still has its risks. The ring could get lost in the pool, and getting it out might be difficult. It becomes even more complicated if the pool is drained without knowing your ring is there. 


As you already know, rings don't mix well with harsh chemicals. Most cleaning agents contain these harsh chemicals that could lead to chemical erosion. They also leave the ring looking cloudy. So, before you start cleaning, always remember to remove your ring. If you're afraid of losing your ring that way, you can always wear gloves to protect your ring.


Working Out

Understandably, you want to wear your ring everywhere, especially if it means something special. However, the gym isn't one of those places. Wearing your ring at the gym exposes it to the risk of wear and tear due to strenuous activity. Instead of wearing your ring at the gym, you could purchase a silicone ring that can survive harsh conditions.

Labor-Intensive Work

It's almost impossible not to use your hands to do labor-intensive work, especially if that's the field you work in. However, you can still protect your ring by wearing gloves or using it as a pendant for your necklace. That way, you don't have to worry about losing it.

Personal Grooming

I'm sure you've heard people emphasize the dangers of bathing with your ring. It's not necessarily the water that damages it but also the chemicals from your soap, shampoo, and creams. Although it may be convenient to keep your ring on at this point, it's best to remove it when doing personal grooming.
