Spring time means much more than just warm weather and BBQ’s, it also means weddings and engagements. Being a guy let me tell you that this can be a very stressful time. My wife and I have now been married almost five years and I can still remember the day that I went to find her engagement ring.
I am a frugal person and I always have been. I am lucky that my wife is not a materialistic person and isn’t evan a big jewelry person. That didn’t change the fact that I wanted to get her the nicest ring I could afford considering we were only a couple years out of college.
After talking to the jeweler for awhile and having her show me several different styles I ended up going with a princess cut ring at just over one carot, near colorless and with a few slight imperfections. If I had know what I know now I could have saved a little money.
Below you will find a diamond guide that will walk you through 10 steps on how to buy a diamond and save money.
Have you bought a diamond ring and if so were there any things you did to save a little money?
