Engagement Rings Under $15000

Last week, I shared some of my favorite engagement rings under $5000. This week, I want to kick things up a notch – let’s check out what a budget of $15,000 gets you. First of all, this budget is generous – you’re going to get a damn fabulous ring. The average engagement ring across the whole US for 2016 was $5978 – but couples in certain locations spent a lot more. In South Florida, we typically see a bit of a higher spend than the average, and requests for engagement rings under 15000 are pretty frequent. Now, unlike our $5k budget, this budget grants Read More →

Engagement Ring Price

Engagement ring price – it’s the first topic on many a couples’ brains when they start shopping. No matter how hard you’ve fallen for a Verragio setting, a 3 carat cushion cut, or a Tacori stack, you know you’ve got to ask the hard questions. Just how much is this Pinterest dream ring going to cost me? And, obviously, the answer differs depending on the ring in question. But what determines that engagement ring price?

Engagement Rings Under $5000

Engagement rings under 5000 dollars are BACK! I’ve shared a few of these budget series before, and I want to kick another one off today. I’m starting with $5k engagement rings and I’ll go up from here, but this budget is a pretty common starting point among the clientele at Diamonds by Raymond Lee. What’s a little misleading though, is that they’re looking for settings under $5000 – with extra set aside for the center stone. I’ve written about this before, in “Does that price include the center stone.” At RLJ, it’s a little more straightforward, because most of our Read More →

Emerald Cut Engagement Rings: What to Look For

Emerald cut engagement rings are a beautiful sight that are often few and far between. Emerald cut diamonds themselves are rarer “in the wild” than brilliant cuts, because they are a fancy cut. I wrote about the fabulous world of fancy cuts over on the Raymond Lee Jewelers blog yesterday, and TBH it was hard for me to choose just one emerald cut to highlight. Fancy cuts are a step outside of the round brilliant norm, so their appeal is to a slightly smaller audience. However, those that love them can’t get enough! Fancy shapes also have different quality standards Read More →
