If you’ve been dating a special someone for a length of time, and you’re now ready to pop the marriage question, you’ll need to get an engagement ring to present during the proposal. Engagement ring prices vary greatly, so you’ll be able to find a ring in your price range with relative ease. Before making the firm decision to buy one ring, explore several options that sell inexpensive jewelry.
Pawnshops sell a variety of jewelry, including diamond engagement rings, at a fraction of a price that the ring would cost in another store. The catch is that the ring was likely pawned by a former owner who needed cash. If it doesn’t bother you that the ring you’ll use during your proposal had a previous owner and wearer, you may find a suitably priced ring at a pawnshop.
