Here are our top suggestions:
We can’t stress this one enough. So many of our clients who couldn’t afford a ring using natural diamonds saw their dreams come true with moissanite. Moissanite is more than a diamond simulant; it’s a lab-created diamond, with parallel properties. It even exceeds diamonds in some areas, such as brilliance.
It’s also an eco-friendly choice. Considering many jewelers can’t tell the difference between moissanite and diamonds, we think this is one of the best ways to save money and choose the ring of your dreams.
2. Custom design it.
When YOU decide on the material and design of your ring, you have much more control regarding the overall cost of the ring. In addition to having a one-of-a-kind ring, you intrinsically feel more connected with the ring, because it’s your brain child with your personal signature. You’ll learn what metals and gems are more affordable than others and base your design accordingly.
3. Ring Makeovers
Many have a family heirloom in their possession but aren’t fond of the design. A ring makeover allows you to use the existing material and upgrade the look according to your style. It’s also an eco-friendly choice, since you’re repurposing an existing piece of jewelry. On top of that, you have a ring with family history imbued in it.
So there you go – ways to save money on engagement rings during trying economic times!
