Top Five Budget Tips for the Wedding Rings

  1. Love lots of bling but can’t afford the ring? Ask if it also comes in a setting using a lesser metal. White gold looks just like platinum but costs a fraction of the amount.
  2. Buy your engagement ring and wedding ring at the same time and ask for a package price.
  3. Not picky about the design or metal? Check Amazon, etsy, or Amazon, etsy, or Scoutmob for some real steals (like only $25!).
  4. If it is the rock you love but it’s too expensive, look for rings with a stone that is the next grade down. If it is at the top of the next grade, it generally looks the same but for a lot less money.
  5. Have a metal fabricator friend or someone with access to a lathe? Always wanted to take a jewelry making class? Why not ask them to MAKE your wedding ring? We did!
