Shopping on a budget!

Sometimes things take an unexpected turn and we can all agree that the year 2020 took an unexpected turn. Covid 19 has caused many of us to change our plans. From smaller weddings to shopping on a budget. Here are a few tips to help you select that ring you want without breaking the piggy bank.

We have all heard that diamonds are forever and we all want that diamond engagement ring. You can get that diamond engagement ring cheaper if you swap out the mined diamonds for lab created diamonds. They are physically and chemically identical so you definitely won't be able to tell them apart with your eye.

Moissanite is an excellent alternative to diamonds. They look just as a great as a diamond and you definitely will not be able to tell the difference with your eye. Don't worry they are almost as hard as diamonds and so will last your lifetime.

A new trend is to use birthstones in your engagement ring. Diamonds are one of the most expensive gemstones and by switching to your birthstone may help you save a bundle on that must have engagement ring design.

Gemstones look great but if you are really on a budget you may opt to skip the gemstones altogether.

Wedding bands come in a variety of designs now and can be customised using finishes or engraving. There are lots of designs options with wedding bands and leaving out the gemstones will save you a bundle.

Non traditional metals are being used increasingly to create wedding bands. They are just as inert as gold and will last just as long.

Whatever you are looking for you can find an option out there for you within your budget by using one of these tips. Be sure to check out our website for design ideas. Click on the Jewellery Showcase to get quotes on your customised items.
