Wedding rings are no doubt an investment. However, is there really any need to break the bank? With so many things to consider when it comes to being a couple – getting on the property ladder, having a honeymoon and room for potential children, sometimes the need to pull back on them purse strings is required when it comes to purchasing a wedding ring. But at what cost?
There is no doubt in my mind that couples should chose a wedding ring that we last them through years to come. And when it comes to the quality of jewellery, I really do believe that you get what you pay for. However the cost has to be right and the ring also has to be to your taste!
So, what is the perfect wedding ring cost and how much can you really afford? Abelini jewellery have a lovely range of wedding rings, and they may just have the answer you are looking for.
With all that said and done above, it’s important to know your budget and stick to it! The Independent shared a study stating that Londoners spend the most on their wedding rings with an average cost of £2,778 while Northern Irish couples forked out the most on their engagement rings at £1.722. Scottish couples on the other hand proved the most shrewd, spending an average of just £563 and £862 on their wedding and engagement rings. So there really isn’t the perfect price. But you know what you can and can’t afford. Figuring it all out can be overwhelming but take a look at your cash flow and figure out what is affordable for you as a couple.
Secondly, it’s all about choosing the style and shape of your wedding ring to minimise choice. Of course, if you have flexibility around this, then your cost will also be more free to manoeuvre. Abelini offer a fantastic range of diamond wedding rings and a filter to help customers narrow down their search guide. It’s very important to consider what style of engagement ring you have and how it lies on your finger. Getting a wedding ring to match your current diamond will be a start in determining what is the right wedding ring and the most affordable piece of jewellery to select.
When it comes to narrowing down your search, also consider the type of person you are. Are you more of a person who makes a statement? Or do you prefer subtle pieces? This can be a great way of finding the best wedding ring for you.
Definitely peruse the cost of wedding rings and do not settle for the first cost you see. As you can imagine, the cost of a wedding ring can fluctuate! Once you have found a style that you love, see what comes within your budget and compare a select few rings! Abelini have a lovely range within each of their different styles of wedding rings so you are spoilt for choice! Abelini even have a samples service and plenty of jewellery consultants who are available to help.
Worried you may begin to hate your wedding ring? Check the returns policy and find out where you stand legally when it comes to returning your wedding ring. You’ll also want to make sure your ring will be under warranty and for how long.
There is so much to consider when it comes to purchasing a wedding ring but when it comes to affordability, it really is down to choice and budget. One important thing to consider is to not get stressed. Marriage is the beginning of a new adventure and purchasing a wedding ring should not bring financial worry or stress on to any newly-wed couple. Have fun!
