Engagement rings are a symbol of eternal love and devotion. When you are ready to pop the question to your partner, that engagement ring will become the most important gift you ever get her. You want to do it right while also sticking to your budget. Learn more about affordable engagement rings in Argos, Indiana.


First and foremost, you want to buy a quality diamond. The higher the quality of the diamond, the more money it will cost. Luckily, you can still find quality diamonds in your budget that are proudly a diamond and not a knock-off, like cubic zirconium.

When you understand how jewelers appraise diamonds, it will help you when diamond shopping. A diamond's quality is measured using the 4 C's:

  • Cut - The symmetry and reflectiveness of the diamond.
  • Color - Diamonds receive a GIA rating for color with "colorless" and "near-colorless" as the top tier. Certain unique colors are also considered extremely valuable.
  • Clarity - Imperfections (or lack thereof) in the diamond, which can make it appear cloudy
  • Carat - Carat refers to the weight of the diamond.Diamonds that weigh more tend to be larger in size, too.

Establish Your Budget

You may not be able to put a price on love, but jewelers can certainly put a price on diamonds. Establish your budget early in the shopping process so that you stick to affordable options. The typical 1-carat ring costs $5500, but every couple is different. Don't overextend yourself just to buy a ring. With that being said, you also want to buy something that shows how much you care. Talk to your jeweler about financing options and don't forget insurance!

Make it Suit Her

Before you go ring shopping, start really paying attention to your partner's personal style. Do they like ornate, large jewelry or simple, understated jewelry? Do they wear a lot of bling, or do they prefer to stick to one small stone? You can also ask your partner's opinion when you see engagement rings on television. If all else fails, bring a friend or family member to the jeweler with you to get a second opinion.
