Everything You Need To Know About Shopping For Your Wedding Rings
Wedding Rings have long been a symbol of never-ending love, partnership and commitment. Discover ideas here for shopping tips and alternative ring ideas.
Wedding rings that include a diamond, sapphire, ruby or emerald are among the most expensive. If that’s your thing, consider the four C’s of shopping…Clarity, Color, Cut and Carat weight.
Save money by going with lower grades in clarity and color, and smaller in carat weight. But, don’t skimp on the cut, that determines the brilliance and shape of the stone. No matter what price you pay, make sure to choose a jeweler that offer a good return policy and jewelry guarantees.
Buying Man-Made diamonds or gemstones are a great way to save money, and feel good about the environment. The stones are made in a lab, not mined from the earth and are conflict free. Also, look for companies that offer money back guarantees. Some companies offer a Lifetime Performance Guarantee.
Also consider man-made crystals from companies like from Swarovski.
Semi-Precious Gemstones Rings… Not only can save you big money, but your stone can be matched to your birthstone, or favorite color. This is a trend that’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
