If you are in the market for an engagement ring, you may be glad to know that you don’t have to spend a fortune. When most of us think of a traditional style, we think of a diamond. But, how much will it cost you to purchase a good quality diamond that’s nice in size? For many, it would cause financial hardship or even result in debt just to own this type of ring. A fake engagement ring, however, is one that contains a stone that resembles a diamond, such as cubic zirconia. This man-made, or created, stone is designed to imitate a flawless, eye clean diamond and offers the wearer a nice presence on the hand. Below are some tips to choosing fake engagement rings that won’t bust your budget:
Shop for a believable size in a solitaire ring. Traditionally, engagement rings are designed in the shape of a solitaire (single stone). If you want to find a fake engagement ring that features cubic zirconia instead of a diamond, it’s important to select a size that is believable. When a ring is referred to as believable, it means that others who see the wearer would not assume it is fake just because of its size. In other words, a 1 carat stone may be more believable than a 10 carat stone unless the wearer is known to be wealthy. Typically, a 1 carat or 2 carat solitaire offers the most believable design in fake engagement rings.
Choose fake engagement rings set in sterling silver. Recognized as a precious metal, sterling silver is both durable and beautiful. Because it resembles white gold and/or platinum, this beautiful icy metal is a popular choice for those who desire a quality setting without the hefty price tag. Of the precious metals, which include sterling silver, gold and platinum, sterling is the most affordable. When it comes to maintaining its beauty, all that’s necessary is a polishing cloth to remove tarnish and restore shine.
Know what you are buying. If you shop online, which many do, buy from a reputable jeweler who specializes in quality pieces. If you are in the market for sterling silver and cubic zirconia fake engagement rings, shop with a website that offers product photos so that you will know exactly what you will receive. If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask. Customer service is essential to all businesses, and a reputable online jewelry store will invite your inquiries and suggestions.
Don’t assume that fake engagement rings lack in quality. By definition, fake is something that is not genuine. Faux leather is not genuine leather, but it is still beautiful. Cubic zirconia, although it is not a genuine diamond, is also beautiful and is nothing short of breathtaking when worn as an engagement ring. Don’t assume that just because you either cannot or will not spend a fortune for a certain type of ring, it is any less beautiful if you shop wisely.
As a final thought to buying fake engagement rings, make sure that the wearer knows that the ring is not a genuine diamond. It’s always a good idea for couples to discuss budget, style choice and pricing when it comes to this type of purchase. In fact, it is during these discussions that many couples decide to invest in fake engagement rings in the beginning so that they can afford other essentials in the future.
