Outside of your home, your car, your college tuition, and maybe that ill-advised, last-second trip to Europe, a diamond might be one of the most expensive purchases you will ever make. Fortunately, it can also be one of the most lasting, if done right.
The following quick tips can ensure you make a smarter decision:
Always go for quality over quantity: This is a simple concept, but it’s extremely important, especially when you’re making a more substantial purchase. Because let’s be honest, you’re not exactly buying a cheeseburger. You want to be confident that the piece of jewelry you’re getting will last, and that it’s worth what you’re spending. That’s why you need to be aware of the 4 C’s of diamonds (Cut, Color, Clarity, Carat Weight). Learn more about the 4 C’s of diamonds here on our site.
Make it easier on yourself—get a “complete ring”: The diamond is definitely the star, but without a ring, it’s a bit incomplete. If you’re looking at engagement rings, you should consider a wedding set. Sometimes called the “bridal set,” this combo includes an engagement ring and a wedding band that matches it. And while each piece can look appropriate as a separate ring, when worn together, they look complete. There are also options of getting what’s called a “trio ring set.” This includes a ladies engagement ring, a ladies wedding band, and a men’s wedding band.
How to pay for it: You’ve met the girl of your dreams, and you want to ask her to marry you. It’s an incredible feeling. But if you’re like most people, you might be a little stressed, because you don’t currently have the savings built up to just throw down on the perfect engagement ring. That’s okay. We get it. That’s why we’ve got great financing options here at Morgan Jewelers.
