This week, I’ll be sharing my favorite engagement rings in our most popular budgets. The average ring at RLJ sells for anywhere from $4,000 – $8,000, (which makes sense, with he average US engagement ring falling right around $5,000.) We have a generous amount grooms who do shop above this budget, but for the most part, we want to ensure we have a huge selection for our guys shopping in that budget.
Today, we’re stepping up from $4000 to engagement rings under 5000 dollars – you’d be surprised what that extra $1000 can get you!
This 18k White Gold GLS Cert. 0.73ct Pink Oval Diamond Engagement Ring features a treated center stone – thus the lower price point. However it gets you a very luxe look for $4295. The main stone is a pink, irradiated diamond with an SI1 clarity grade. The surrounding stones are H color. The surrounding diamonds (and the diamonds on the shanks) are VS2-SI1.
This bezel set vintage inspired diamond ring uses its setting to add presence on the hand. The center stone is a generous .80ct round brilliant with H/I color and SI1 clarity, the accent diamonds bump the total carat weight up to 1.56ctw in the lovely 14 karat white gold setting.
This 6 prong solitaire is the classic Tiffany style setting. We used a 14 karat white gold setting to hold the L colored, VVS1 clarity round brilliant weighing .78 carats.
This three stone engagement ring (one each for your past, present, and future) has three gorgeous round brilliants centered on a .55 carat center stone with a K color and SI2 clarity, plus two perfectly matched accent diamonds weighing .30ctw.
This gorgeous vintage beauty is a platinum setting with .90ctw of Diamonds are I/J in Color and SI in Clarity.
Finally, I’m sneaking this one in. It is a CZ center, but it’s one of my all time favorite settings and some couples are just fine with keeping a CZ center, so I figured I’d show this example. The setting is platinum with Approximately 0.37ctw of diamonds. Diamonds are G/H in color and VS in clarity.
