Are you shopping for an engagement ring on a budget but still want to spoil your loved one? There are so many ways you can cut engagement ring costs while still getting your girl the ring of her dreams. Here are a few tips to follow when shopping on a budget!
Did you know a diamond’s shape can affect the price by up to 30%? Some stone shapes are more expensive because of the time and skill that goes into perfecting the shape. Two stones may be the exact same carat size, clarity, and color, but the shape may cause one to be much more expensive. For example, round diamonds are more expensive because a large amount of the rough stone must be cut away. If you’re shopping on a budget, stick to an emerald or asscher cut.
By purchasing a diamond that is, for example, 1.99 carats instead of 2.00 carats, you could save hundreds of dollars! Doing so will only benefit your wallet as the eye won’t notice this slight difference in carat size.
While beautiful, pavé bands equal more diamonds – and more diamonds equal more money! A simple metal band is the way to go if you’re on a tight budget. Plus, the traditional simplicity of a platinum or gold band will never go out of style!
