May 31,2024 | Juyoyo

Are you looking for an engagement ring ready to propose to her? While the traditional diamond ring is still the most popular choice for an engagement ring, we don't have to be fixated on it when we're on a budget. Opting for a more cost-effective gemstone ring might be a good alternative. In this article, let's find out the popular and affordable engagement rings.

Moissanite Engagement Rings

Moissanite is a man made gemstone that looks very similar to diamonds. (Why is it called a man-made gemstone? Because natural moissanite is extremely rare, almost all moissanite on the market is lab grown.) With a Mohs hardness of 9.5, it is a highly durable gemstone. Moreover, due to cost and other factors, the price of moissanite of the same carat is only 1/10th that of diamonds, making it the best substitute.

Opal Engagement Rings

Compared to moissanite rings, opal rings may be less competitive. They do not resemble diamonds in appearance and are a completely different style of gemstone. Why recommend opal engagement rings, then? At the end of 2023, opal rings gained extreme attention for appearing in the hands of famous singer Taylor Swift, making them a hot new trend in engagement rings. At the same time, opals are relatively affordable, with the price of a 1-carat opal usually ranging from a few dozen to a few hundred dollars, with high-quality or rare varieties costing a bit more.

Salt and Pepper Diamond Engagement Rings

Don't question it, salt and pepper diamonds are real diamonds, and the reason why they are rarely seen in the public eye is because they used to be discarded by developers who thought they contained too many inclusions and felt they were defective. However, due to the changing market demand, it has been able to make its presence felt and has gained a lot of "admirers". Not only do the inclusions give it a different feel than the traditional flawless diamond, but it is also much more affordable than a flawless diamond, with the price of a 1ct salt and pepper diamond usually ranging from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars depending on the quality of the stone, making it one of the most affordable options for a diamond engagement ring available today.
