The Basics of Engagement Ring Pricing
It’s time to find the best value for your engagement ring budget. While the national average cost of an engagement ring in the US for 2021 was about $5,000, your personal budget may vary based on your taste and preferences.
Different specs will change the cost of your ring. From more inexpensive metals like gold to higher-priced platinum, take a look at what metal suits you. Stones can also vary dramatically in price. Lab-grown diamonds are a great way to achieve the look and feel of traditional diamonds for much less. While carat, clarity, and cut of your stones will also determine how much your ring will run. Knowing these details will help you set a more realistic budget (or see if you have a more flexible budget than you thought!)
Deciding between a ready-to-order or custom piece? Custom engagement rings are going to fall into an array of price points depending on the design details as well. However, Lisa Robin’s custom rings don’t come at a premium price. So, to help translate the price into your final vision, we took it upon ourselves to showcase Lisa Robin’s own stunning engagement ring collection.
