Good Morning! You’re here today because you want engagement rings under 5000 dollars and honey, you’re gonna get what you’re looking for because I am armed and ready with some $5000 engagement ring eye candy to knock your Happy Socks off. Because this is such a strong budget, there’s actually a few different ways you can approach it: with ready-to-wear engagement rings, like the ones I’m showing off today, or with settings that still need a separately purchase center diamond, which I will show off next. I’m excited to kick off this series and hope you find The One!
First things: engagement rings under 5000 dollars are plentiful. This is a fantastic budget that will get you an amazeballs ring, no problem. It’s also a chunk of cash! So if you think $5000 is still way too much for an engagement ring you have some required reading:
Ok, now that we’re all caught up with our summer reading list, we can dive into the first item on our syllabus. What kind of bling-age can you expect from engagement rings under 5000 dollars? My goal is always to pleasantly surprise you, so I hope the rings I’ve chosen today will suffice. But generally, a $5k budget – like I mentioned – is a strong one. You’re going to get a beautiful diamond with considerable carat weight. The exact combination of carat weight with the other 3 c’s depends on the individual diamond, and that’s what’s going to determine the diamond’s cost. I can show you $5000 diamonds, but I can’t answer “How many carats can I get for $5000?” Because that’s a trick question, remember?
Anyway, today I’m showing you engagement rings under 5000 dollars – not just $5k diamonds. So I’ve chosen a few ready to wear engagement rings from Raymond Lee Jewelers.
Ready for the eye candy? Let’s dig in!
This pear shaped diamond anchors a minimal, classic setting with two other pear shaped accent diamonds. The center diamond is a beautiful J color VVS2 .90 carat pear, and the two on either side are the same color and clarity, weighing .60ctw. The setting is platinum and this ring is just above budget at $5,100.
Up next, this chocolate Asscher cut makes for a totally unique and modern engagement ring. The double halo and double shanks are warm 14 karat rose gold set with .42ctw of white round brilliant diamonds. The center diamond is approximately 1 carat and this ring is $4,695.
This clustered halo is anchored by a .50 carat round brilliant diamond, G/H in color and SI in clarity. It’s surrounded by 1.25ctw of round brilliant accent diamonds in 14kt white gold for a glittering effect. It is $4,995.
This emerald cut beauty focuses on .85 carats of center stone surrounded by another half a carat (.52ctw) of round brilliant accent diamonds set in 14kt white gold. This ring costs $4,435 out the door.
And finally, the lowest cost ready-to-wear ring I want to show off today, one of my favorites. This mosaic halo is elegant and pretty, with a classic design and plenty of diamonds – .90ctw. The trick is, they’re broken into smaller clusters, and a ton of smaller diamonds costs exponentially less than one diamond with the same weight. This 18kt gold setting – plus all those round brilliants, emeralds, and baguettes – will only set you back $3,695.
