Princess cut engagement rings are quite beautiful, and for that reason very popular. The cut of a princess cut engagement ring lends itself well to brilliance, and any princess cut diamond or other gem characteristically enhances the over all beauty of the ring. Most jewelers carry this sort of cut in diamond, including discount dealers. When you are contemplating engagement, princess cut engagement rings are well worth looking at. They can be affordable, and look great in platinum, silver and yellow or white gold.
Finding a discount princess cut engagement ring
When you are looking for an affordable engagement ring, it is possible to get a princess cut diamond ring for a reasonable price. High quality jewelry in platinum, silver and yellow or white gold is fairly easy to find in many places. This is because discount jewelry can be had in abundance. And this is high quality jewelry. The reason there is so much high quality jewelry available at a discount is because the actual cost to jewelers and dealers is quite low. It is not unusual to mark up jewelry 700% or 800%. The jewelry industry has the highest mark ups of any industry. So, even when something is half-off retail, the jewelry dealer still makes more than 300% profit.
You should never pay full retail for a piece of jewelry. Online sellers often sell overstock jewelry for low prices, and the popularity of the princess cut makes it relatively easy to find such an engagement ring online. You do want to be sure that the dealer is reputable, however. Many dealers offer a trial period in which you can have your diamond appraised in order to ensure that it is, in fact, a diamond. There are also catalogues that sell princess cut jewelry, including engagement rings, often at wholesale (which still allows the dealer to make a profit). Additionally, pawn shops and antique dealers often have unique jewelry, although you are less likely to find a princess cut when looking at antique jewelry.
No matter how you get your engagement ring, you can ensure an attractive and brilliant look when you look at princess cut engagement rings.
