Engagement Rings Don’t Have to Break the Bank

The process of preparing for a proposal, while magical, can also be extremely stressful! There are many things to consider: a date, location, and most importantly, a show-stopping engagement ring.

Oftentimes, people will save up for months in order to buy an engagement ring. You may think that engagement rings will end up costing you an arm and a leg, but there are affordable options! The team here at Hemming Jewelers is here to help you with finding the perfect ring at an affordable price.

How to Find an Affordable Ring

There are many affordable options when it comes to shopping for an engagement ring. If you’re not looking to spend a whole month’s salary on a ring, hope is not lost! There are numerous, beautiful engagement rings that are also affordable.

Options for affordable rings can be found through:

  • Considering diamond alternatives — such as gemstones, glass gems, and more!
  • Secondhand or vintage rings
  • Sizing down the diamond
  • Opting for a starter ring
  • Using a family heirloom ring

According to American Express, less than half of millennials spend two months’ salary on a ring. Instead, they often reallocate those funds into experiences, like the honeymoon or the wedding.

When it comes to choosing an engagement ring, knowledge is power! It’s important to know about the four C’s — color, cut, clarity, and carat — and how they can impact the price of a ring. Be sure to know what you’re looking for so you can make your search more specific.
