How To Buy a Diamond on a Budget


If you are planning to buy a diamond ring for your fiancée, you might as well be prepared to spend thousands of dollars. The Cheapest diamond ring may cost you around 6000 dollars depending on the number of carats or design of the ring. Although the rings can cost you an arm and a leg, there are various tricks that you can use to get your favorite diamond ring at a fair price.

Have a good plan.

Diamond rings are usually charged depending on the size of the stone and the design as well. But if the ring that you had anticipated to buy has a higher price may be due to the size of the diamond stones, Consider having a 1-carat diamond with the carat maybe in the middle and other small pieces on the sides. If your budget does not allow that, have one large stone in the middle of the ring.

Use prong instead of metals.

Prong is small metals that tightly hold the diamonds together on a ring. The prong is cheaper as compared to the metal rings. Also keep in mind that the diamonds are the focal points when buying an engagement ring and so to ensure that they are visible, prong will bring out the excellent highlight of the stones. The most recommended prong metal to use on a diamond ring is the platinum since it is more firm and makes it easy to clean the ring.

Use pave diamonds.

You can get your diamond ring look alike even if it is not the actual diamond stones. Pave diamonds are tiny crystal looking stones that add sparkle to an engagement ring. The small stones are not real diamond stones, but they give an engagement ring a diamond ring look and are cheap as well. Therefore you can ask a designer to make you a ring with these accessories on it. To give your ring that elegant look, consider getting a small stone in the middle of the ring and then add the pave diamonds on the sides of the rocks.

Save up for shy purchases.

There are four main components that one needs to watch out for when buying a diamond ring. These four elements are the clarity, color, the cut, and carat. The clearer the diamond ring is the higher the cost it will be. The same goes for other like the carats size. If the carat is finely chopped and has a large size, the pricing will be a bit high. Therefore to get your ring at an affordable price, ditch all the four factors and opt for a simple diamond ring. Buy half the size of the carat and maybe choose a ring that has a good shape without focusing on the excellent cutting of the stone.

Opt for gold over platinum.

Platinum is the most recommended color due to its durability and high qualities. Also, we cannot forget that all these features make the color to be more expensive as compared to gold. Instead get a white gold since it is also durable and has other reliable elements just like the platinum, plus it is cheap.

You don’t have to spend all your savings to buy your fiancee a diamond ring as the above tips can help you acquire a diamond ring at a reasonable price. Make sure you have the ring made from a suitable jewel store for quality and excellent crafting.
