In the fifth and final instalment of our five part series on engagement rings we take a look at engagement rings that don’t require a full blown bank raiding plan. We absolutely believe that you do not have to compromise on quality when looking for a cheaper engagement ring. Our final three jewellers are testament to this and are absolutely worth considering when looking for that perfect sparkle.

Budget Friendly

In the sometimes cruel world we live in nowadays, it can be very difficult to find that special sparkly number for the right price. We have, however, made things a whole lot easier as below are three of our favourite jewellers and websites whereby you can find yourself your dream ring at a fraction of the cost you thought it might be! We find ourselves sifting through Etsy almost daily!

Astley Clarke

“Astley Clarke was founded in London by Bec Astley Clarke MBE in 2007, to celebrate design, innovation and colour in fine jewellery. A sense of Britishness is central to Astley Clarke, which stands for irreverence as much as it does excellence. Pieces are refined yet easy-to-wear, intelligent and joyful.”

Seriously, who doesn’t love Astley Clarke? Her pieces are so beautiful but not overpowering and at the right price. We definitely feel the quality over quantity vibe and while you’re at it have a look at their selection of eternity rings: O.M.G is all we can say.

The Mrs Box

And to keep those sparkling diamonds safe and pretty? What else but a pure velvet monogrammed box from The Mrs Box, as featured in many of the photos in this five part series. And because we don’t spend enough time on Instagram, many an hour can be spent staring at the most beautiful photos of The Mrs Box’s surrounded by floral masterpieces and decadent rings.
