When you start shopping for engagement rings, the number one concern most people have is the size of the center stone. While the average engagement ring purchase falls between one and two carats, there are those that go way above and beyond the norm. There’s going big or going home, and then there’s going bigger or going home.
Bigger is Better
A common misconception is that all big diamond rings are going to cost an arm and a leg. Fortunately, this isn’t always the case; there are multiple ways to go about buying a bigger diamond ring without breaking the bank.
These days, lab-grown diamonds have swooped in and become our bestselling center stone option. With prices 50-70% lower than their natural counterparts, lab-grown diamonds have become exceedingly popular for their cost-effectiveness.
Additionally, knowing your 4 C’s and being open to compromise can help bring down costs for your diamond. For example, going from “colorless” to “near-colorless” can save you thousands and still have a white face-up value.
