Our 10 Most Affordable Lab Grown Diamond Engagement Rings

Article by Kate

When you choose a Lab Grown Diamond over an earth-mined diamond you are already saving up to 40% so you can get a bigger diamond for your budget!! But if finances are tight and you want to save even more, we have beautiful styles to recommend, as well as tips to get more carats for less. We want you to get as close to the perfect engagement ring as possible without breaking the bank! We have many ethical rings in a variety of styles- whether you would like to go for a classic look or find a unique engagement ring, there are plenty of affordable options to choose from.

 

We have a few suggestions to help you cut costs strategically. For your center stone go a tiny bit smaller- a Lab Grown Diamond weighing 1.98ct can be significantly less expensive than a Lab Grown Diamond weighing 2.0ct, but with no visual size difference. If you go down in clarity and color and go up in cut you will have a center stone with an excellent cut that hides imperfections. Our last suggestion is to choose rose or yellow gold for the ring setting to mask any color in the diamond. A lower color grade diamond (J-K) will be more noticeable in white gold, but in yellow gold, you won’t notice a thing!

 

 

 

The Blonde is a timeless and elegant setting that keeps your center stone the main attraction. Try this traditional style with an oval or round shape and a brilliant-cut to make it stand out even more!
