The Secret to Affordable Engagement Rings

An engagement ring is not just a ring. It is one of the most important investments in your relationship and is precious for reasons more than one.

Here are the secrets for finding an affordable engagement ring

Set Your Budget

Well, before heading to shop for your engagement ring, carefully set a budget. Though we’ve got you covered in every budget but at least have some tentative budget in your mind. There is no specific rule for an engagement ring’s budget and everyone has his own purchasing power. Respect yours and spend accordingly. Irrespective of your budget, we have a wide collection of choices to help you select a perfect engagement ring.

Choose your Stone Wisely

We have already discussed in our earlier blog how colored stones have always held an illustrious position in engagement rings. The increasing trend of colored engagement rings can help you get an engagement ring which is unique as well as affordable.

Sapphires and Diamonds are same in every aspect expect that the diamonds are slightly harder in texture than Sapphires, yet no one can find the difference between the two with a bare eye. With Sapphires being almost one quarter of the cost of diamonds, people looking for affordable engagement rings prefer them over Diamonds rings. Sapphire engagement rings work as perfect alternative engagement rings for Diamonds.

People often have this misconception that Sapphire Engagement Rings are very costly, however, that is not entirely true.  In general, a Sapphire Engagement ring can be significantly more affordable than the more common diamond ring and can be within everyone’s reach. Having a sapphire as the center stone instead of a diamond can provide you with a distinctive look for a smaller price.  We have a wonderful selection of lavender, yellow, peach and pink sapphires...pretty much every color of the rainbow. Please feel free to contact us to begin the process of designing your affordable dream engagement ring.

Select A More Detailed Setting:

A glorified way to get a more distinctive yet affordable engagement ring is to step up the detailing. The price of a diamond increases with the increase in its size, however, smaller sized diamonds are much cheaper. Thus, selecting a ring setting with a halo of diamonds around the center stone is an wonderful way to create a beautiful ring within your budget.

Choose a Ring Without a Center Stone:

Today, people are constantly looking for options that seem unique and trendy. There has been a gradual shift of choice from the traditional center gemstone engagement ring to the non-traditional engagement ring without any center gemstone. Despite of not having a center gem stone, these alternative engagement rings have gorgeously shining diamonds that are affordable but never look cheap. 

Give your relationship a beautiful start with an engagement ring, which is as unique as your love and as affordable as your budget. Whatever your requirements are, we are always there to help you take your first step towards your dreams. Feel free to contact us to discuss your dream ring whatever your budget may be.
