WEDDING RINGS HAVE LONG BEEN A SYMBOL OF NEVER-ENDING LOVE, PARTNERSHIP, AND COMMITMENT, BUT CAN BE EXPENSIVE. AND LET'S FACE IT, NOT EVERYONE HAS A UNLIMITED BUDGET! DISCOVER IDEAS HERE FOR...SAVING MONEY, SHOPPING TIPS, AND BEAUTIFUL ALTERNATIVES TO MORE EXPENSIVE STYLES...
Save money by going with lower grades in clarity and color, and smaller in carat weight. But, don't skimp on the cut..that determines the brilliance and shape of the stone. No matter what price you pay, make sure to choose a jeweler that offer a good return policy and jewelry guarantees.
Semi-Precious Gemstones Rings...Not only can save you big money, but your stone can be matched to your birthstone, or favorite color. This is a trend that not's going anywhere anytime soon.
We love: Morganite~Yellow Sapphire~Citrine~Peridot~Blue Topaz~Tourmaline~Aquamarine~Black Pearl~Pink Sapphire.
Wedding Ring Metals...
Some great money saving materials include: Stainless steel (makes a beautiful and cheap men's wedding band), silver, palladium, white gold, bronze, brass, titanium and tungsten carbide (seen often in men's wedding bands). Stay away from platinum if you're all about saving money.
Word of caution; Titanium and tungsten carbide can't be resized. Titanium can be cut off finger, but not everyone knows how to cut off a tungsten carbide ring.
