How to Lower the Price of Your Engagement Ring

If you are on a budget and want to get as much ring for your buck, have no fear we have the tips that will save you thousands on your engagement ring.

How to Lower the Price of Your Engagement Ring

First lets discuss what the 4 C’s are. This is a common diamond term we use almost always on our blog posts. These four c lettered words basically describe everything that is important about a diamond. Color, Clarity, Cut and of course Carat Weight. The two C’s that you can reduce the price of your diamond for without having to settle on the size would be the color and the clarity. We would suggest an H in color and an SI in clarity. This is a respectable diamond that looks amazing and is set at an amazing price!

One thing to remember is diamond shapes have an effect on the prices. For example a round diamond tends to be more expensive because it is the most popular ring shape! Over 75% of women have a round diamond mounted into their ring! If you are looking for a nice shape that is really affordable we would suggest to go with the cushion cut diamond. A 1 carat H in color and SI1 in clarity cushion cut runs approximately $2,774.

Another thing that will cut down the price of your engagement ring would be the setting you decide to mount the diamond into. If you do not have any diamonds around the band, which is usually referred to as micro-pave; or pave set, then the price will obviously be lower. Also depending on the metal you choose to plant the ring in will lower the price! 18k Yellow is usually more expensive than 14k. We would suggest you buy the 14k metal setting because it is still a sturdy metal, but it is a fraction of the price.

The last thing that we would like to suggest are some options that you can use to reduce the price of your engagement ring. The first thing would be to use a blue sapphire gemstone as the center stone instead of a diamond. Elizabeth Hurley and Kate Middleton both have made a fashion statement out of this style! Blue sapphires are actually the second most popular gemstone used in an engagement ring. The second thing we would like to mention is the halo setting. It is an outline of diamonds around the center stone and usually gives a bigger appearance to the center stone! If you wanted to save you could use a smaller center stone and just put that into a halo setting!
