Engagement Ring Budget Series: Under $6000

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.

Now that we’re halfway through this week’s budget engagement ring series, you’ll see more and more variety. There is a big difference in what $4000 can buy vs. what $6000 does – though you should always keep in mind how you can maximize your budget using the 4 C’s.

Today, let’s zone in on some $6000 and under beauties.
