Have you dreamed of creating your own engagement ring but shy away from the experience because you think it will be too costly? The perception that a custom ring is outrageously expensive is just that – a perception. See how you can create a gorgeous, customized engagement ring Just For You in a few easy steps….even if your engagement ring budget is $2000 or less!
In these examples, I am using James Allen’s website as they are one of the premier online engagement ring jewelers. Their website allows shoppers to view their selection of diamonds in a full 360 degrees. You can’t do that anywhere else online.
A Stunning Solitaire Under $2000
If you love the look of a simple, classic solitaire, you are in luck. Picking this style allows you to save considerably on the setting – and put your entire budget into a dazzling center diamond.
The most elegant solitaire setting – made famous by Tiffany & Co. is the 6-prong knife edge solitaire. You don’t need to spend a fortune at Tiffany’s to get this setting though. James Allen has a version in 14k yellow or white gold for only $180. This leaves you $1820 for your center diamond. Let’s see what you can get!
Build a Ring to Your Budget
Setting my search criteria on Jamesallen.com, I enter a maximum price of $1900, a minimum color of “I” and look for a stone with a cut rated from “Very Good” to “True Hearts” and submit my criteria to see what I can find.
Once the results show up, James Allen allows users to sort them on the criteria that is most important to them. For this ring, I’m going to sort on Carat size to try and get the largest stone that meets my criteria selected above.
