Diamond jewelry is a gift loved by women, but a gift many men find difficult to pick out. Diamonds are an expensive purchase usually reserved for a big event such as getting engaged or a special anniversary. Not only are you faced with the pressure of choosing a piece she’ll love but you’re also investing a lot of money into that purchase.
While all women have very individualized tastes and it’s up to you to figure out what those are, there are a few tips that can help you stretch your budget a bit further and make the process a little easier on yourself. The very first thing you can do to save money on diamond jewelry is to forget about retail jewelry stores. A reputable pawn shop will have a large selection of diamond jewelry at discounted prices. While some may balk at buying an engagement ring second-hand, your dollar will stretch a lot further, meaning your soon to be fiancée or your wife of 20 years will have a larger, more beautiful diamond than you could have purchased elsewhere.
It’s also important to have a small understanding of diamond jewelry. When purchasing a diamond you want to consider cut, clarity, color and carat. The carat is the size of your diamond. As the carat weight goes up so does the price and a small increase in carat can mean a large increase in price. In fact, the price increase is disproportionate to the size increase. Opting for a slightly smaller carat can save you a lot of money, but won’t look that noticeably smaller when worn. What you don’t want to skimp on is the cut. The cut is what gives a diamond its sparkle, and if your diamond looks sparkling and beautiful the size won’t matter as much.
Finally, look for sales. You may have wanted to propose on Valentine’s Day, but diamonds often goes on sale right after this holiday. Picking out diamond jewelry should involve some planning ahead so you should have time to watch for sales as well as perusing pawn shops and studying up on diamonds. Now that you have a plan to save money on diamond jewelry you can focus on the hard part – figuring out just what style she’s going to love.
