Are both you and your partner budget-conscious when it comes to planning your big day? Do you have a limited amount of money that you can spend on wedding rings? Despite what you may think, it’s fairly easy to find affordable wedding rings in Winnipeg. There are quite a few options available to you – here are some of them.
Consider Custom Rings
Custom wedding bands allow you and your partner to come up with a design that works for both your tastes as well as your budget. You can own bands that are unique to you and work with a jeweller to create something that is not only affordable but looks great too.
When looking to get custom jewellery in Winnipeg be sure to find a reputable jeweller who has a portfolio of work you can check out as well as awesome reviews. These bands need to last forever so quality needs to be at the top of your mind.
If you want something affordable, stay away from chain jewellers and make sure you go to an independent one. Chain jewellers often mark-up their prices because they are a recognizable “brand” and also tend to sell mass-produced pieces.
Independent jewellers, on the other hand, have better quality control over their product, and have more of a personal investment in their business. They are also more negotiable, meaning that you could probably bargain for better deals. Overall, independent owners are more likely to care about you and the quality of their product than a chain would.
Like most things, jewellers often offer clearance sales with options for affordable wedding rings. Keep your eye out for deals offered by independent stores; sometimes you may even find some end-of-season sales. While your options might be limited, you may just end up finding a great deal that can’t be missed.
Many jewellers offer financing options that will allow you to pay off your rings over time. Some even offer 0% interest rates that last between 6 to 18 months. If you can pay off everything before the 0% promotion runs out, that’s great, but if not, make sure that you can afford the monthly payments even after the interest rates go up.
Your first reaction about used wedding rings might be that it doesn’t seem appropriate, but when you think about the savings, you might reconsider. For example, it’s not unrealistic to find pre-owned pieces going for 50% off – meaning you could save thousands of dollars.
There’s also the option of estate jewellery which are pre-owned pieces from a deceased person’s estate, but the ‘estate’ label typically indicates that the item is vintage or antique. Not only are these pieces often discounted but you don’t have to be concerned about wearing rings that used to be owned by someone still living. The vintage or antique aspect of it is also an added bonus.
With so many options to choose from, you and your partner are bound to find something affordable. It just takes a bit of patience and a willingness to shop around a little, and in no time, you’ll find yourself the perfect set of rings.
