There are many ways you can cut the costs of an engagement ring without skimping out on the quality. Here are a few suggestions:
- Buy it on ebay. It may seem crazy, but choose the Buy It Now option and you can find amazing deals all over the world! Just be sure gold rings are genuine gold and not “gold-filled” and that silver rings are genuine sterling silver and not “silver-filled”.
- Walmart. Some rings go up to $5k at the jewelry section at Walmart, so your fiance(e) cannot say (s)he is sure you bought it cheap. They have a great selection most rings are in size 7. So make sure to plan for extra time for size adjustment.
- Pawn Shop. Lots of divorced or extremely poor couples pawn off their engagement, wedding or anniversary rings. Take a look at your local shop and see if you can find one that fits and is appropriate!
- Family Jewels. Do you still have your great-grandmother’s wedding or engagement ring(s)? This is especially unique as an engagement ring to offer to your significant other.
