Cheap Engagement Rings: Beautiful to Your Bride and Your Bank

There is nothing more exciting to a woman than the thought of an engagement ring. And few things in life can cause a man to feel as much trepidation as the thought of an engagement ring. Who can blame them? After all, buying an engagement ring is a huge financial investment. Or at least, that is what most people think. But if you know what you are looking for, there are many ways to find cheap engagement rings.

Finding cheap engagement rings means you have to do your homework. There are four C’s to remember when shopping for diamonds. Cut, Colour, Carat, and Clarity. Finding the right cut can minimize costs because a well-cut stone can hide flaws in the colour and clarity. You can also spend less when you buy a smaller carat. Clarity means how many blemishes and inclusions a diamond has under a ten time magnification. Buying a lower clarity is another way to find cheap engagement rings. Colour is rated on how clear the diamond is. Colourless is more expensive than diamonds with a hint of colour, although it is usually unnoticeable to the naked eye.

Another way to find cheap engagement rings is to consider exchanging the diamond for another type of stone. Often, birthstones are much less expensive than a diamond would be, and they are more eye-catching because of the inclusion of colour. This is also a fun way to make your engagement ring unique. There are gems in nearly every colour, so if she has a favourite colour or really loves her birthstone, this would be an excellent way to cut costs when you are looking for cheap engagement rings.

Differing band metals are also going to impact your price. Platinum is going to be more expensive than palladium engagement rings, so if you are looking for cheap engagement rings, palladium would be a better way to go. It is also scratch resistant and very strong. There are other metal types that are fairly inexpensive as well. Recycled metal is very trendy right now, and it is good for the environment and cost-effective.

Cheap engagement rings can be beautiful and perfect for the love of your life, without breaking the bank. Buying rings does not have to be something that causes a minor heart-attack when you see the sticker price. If you are flexible on what you want, you can still find amazingly beautiful rings for your amazingly beautiful future bride.
