Cheap Diamond Rings

It doesn't matter how much money you have, finding a bargain is always fantastic. You have many options available if you are looking for a cheap diamond ring. One of the first things is to decide how much money you want to spend. If you don't stick to a budget, you might end up spending far more than you can actually afford. These days, it is not the amount of money you spend, or the size of the diamond, but finding the right ring to suit your budget.
Yes 'diamonds are forever', but if the one you want to marry doesn't have her heart set on a diamond, you can always choose another gem that she really wants. Diamonds do have symbolism though, but the choice is yours. A gem other than the obvious will bring the cost of your engagement ring down.

There are pro's and con's to choosing a ring online, or from a jeweler, or from an antique store. The online route allows for quick comparisons where you do not have to deal with annoying sales people, but make sure they are reputable online stores that offer guarantees. If you go directly to the jeweler, you might get good service, but it may be more expensive and will take more time. You might pick up a bargain from an antique store, or pawn shop, but you might also get taken for a ride if you don't know what you're doing.

Another way to arrange a cheap ring is to take a family ring, possibly passed down from a grandmother for example, change the setting of the ring, but use the same stone. Designing your own ring will be cheaper if you have the metal and the stone/s already. You may however want to design your ring from scratch, which could be more expensive and take longer to be manufactured.

The type of metal that you choose will also determine the price of the ring. Some people will tell you that certain diamonds will go together only with certain metals. You need to make the choice for yourself. The obvious choices are white and yellow gold, while the more expensive are platinum and titanium. Stay away from silver, it's not very strong. You don't want something happening to your diamond. White gold is a much better option.

It's important to keep one thing in mind, and that is you need to make sure that you choose something for your loved one that she will want to wear for the rest of her life. Spend time with your loved one looking at different styles of rings to get a good idea of what she wants. This way she won't gasp in horror when you do propose.
