While it’s easy and convenient to shop at large jewelry shops, the price can be prohibitive. But many of these chains offer clearance sales and even previously owned rings at 50% off or more. If you are set on a particular design, look for it on clearance at Kay’s, Helzberg, Jared’s, or Zales outlet stores.
8. Cluster Diamond Rings
Have you or your bride-to-be always dreamed of a huge, dazzling diamond? By clustering together several smaller stones you can create the impression of a larger gem at a fraction of the price. Smaller stones are more common, and therefore less pricey than large gems. Another way to use smaller stones to your advantage is to set them pave-style around the ring’s diameter.
9. Lab Created Diamonds and Gemstones
Not only are they socially and environmentally conscious, but lab-created diamonds and other stones dazzle at an affordable price. Most commonly made using high-pressure high-temperature techniques, synthetic gems match all the specs of a high-quality diamond and can only be distinguished by a carbon test. At stores such as Created Gems in Gold and Silver you can find stunning rings with a reasonable price tag.
10. Estate Sales and Auctions
Why pay retail prices when you can find the ring you always dreamed of at the right price without even leaving your living room? There are plenty of online auctions to choose from, or if you prefer to purchase in-person, try visiting estate sales in your area. There will probably be plenty of stock to sort through, but you will be truly rewarded when you find your diamond in the rough.
Hopefully, this how-to-guide takes the stress away of finding a ring you love. No matter what your budget is, there’s a beautiful engagement ring for every bride.
