Thinking of popping the question and need some ring ideas? Have no fear, because I'm sharing 8 beautiful engagement rings under $2000.
The engagement ring is a tricky little creature - some people have theirs chosen by the time they are 15 years old, while others don't really care.
When they don't care or have a preference, this makes shopping for one all the more difficult, am I right? There are millions of choices! Which to choose?!?
What You Need to Find the Perfect Ring
First, you'll need to sneak-attack your partner's ring finger and get the size down. Maybe when they're asleep is best. Just take a strip of paper, wrap it around their finger and mark where the end meets. Find the ring size by using this conversion tool. They make it super easy.
Next, you'll need an idea of what suits your partner. Do they like gold or silver? Diamonds, pearls or other gemstones. Do they have a color preference? The best way you'll figure this out is if you pay attention to the items of jewelry and clothing they wear most often.
People tend to gravitate towards colors they like, even without thinking about it. Everyone has a color that makes them shine - figure out what that color is.
Budgeting for the Ring
Here's where it's all you, boo. What is your budget? How much do you want to spend/can you spend on an engagement ring? Also, does the ring you want to get fall into your budget?
To save money over time, each payday, set aside an amount that you're comfortable with. This way, you can give yourself time and a financial cushion for the best ring for your person. Looking is the hard part.
Look around and compare styles and prices from different stores. The best shopping rule is to see what's out there, and if it doesn't meet your budget, find an alternative.
Let's say you found the perfect ring, but it costs a lot more than you are willing to spend or can spend. What next? We go to Etsy.
