|…and so is a custom design-your-own ring under $2000 (the engraving is free!)|
If you have a $2000 engagement ring budget there’s no need to settle for a cookie-cutter ring from the mall! (Sorry Jared!) A custom build-your-own ring is well within your reach at an online jeweler like James Allen. There you can choose the exact diamond, setting and metal – even a free engraving to create a ring as unique as you – or your future bride.
My tip to stay on budget when designing a Create-your-Own ring? First, pick the setting you love and work backward from there. If you have your heart set on a halo, 3-stone ring or a vintage setting GO FOR IT. Pick the one you love and then subtract the setting price from your total budget.
Once you’ve determined how much money you’ve got left, visit the diamond database and set that number as your maximum budget parameter. Then look at the diamond options available to complete your ring.
