It’s no surprise that you’d like to buy a Tiffany & Co. engagement ring. After all, Tiffany & Co. jewelry is elegant, beautiful, and manufactured with extraordinary craftsmanship. Their engagement rings are particularly beautiful because Tiffany pioneered the design of engagement rings as we know them today, rings carefully crafted to showcase a brilliant cut diamond to maximize the stone’s exposure to light. Before the Tiffany setting, the whole diamond wasn’t exposed and there wasn’t the sparkle we’re used to today! The problem with such beautiful jewelry is simple. Not everyone can find a way to fit it inside the budget. If your heart is set on a Tiffany & Co. engagement ring, here are two tips that might help you get one.
Consider a Pre-owned Tiffany & Co. Engagement Ring
There are two things to consider about a pre-owned Tiffany & Co. Engagement ring. The first is that the style of one of their engagement rings is almost timeless. It’s sure to look beautiful on the finger of the one you love whether it was manufactured a year ago of twenty-five years ago. Though tastes have changed over the years, the Tiffany setting has remained essentially unchanged. A pre-owned Tiffany and Co. Engagement ring will be far more affordable than a new ring, and it will look just as wonderful. Secondly, remember that diamonds are the most durable naturally occurring substance on Earth. The only thing that can scratch a diamond is another diamond. That means a Tiffany diamond will in all but the rarest of cases be just as bright and sparkly a hundred years after it was cut as was hours after. Pre-owned affects the price but in no way affects the inherent value.
Remember You Can Upgrade Later when You Buy a Tiffany & Co. Engagement Ring
It seems like an obvious point but in our experience young couples often never think about that fact that they can upgrade an engagement ring in the future, when their economic situation is more secure. You can choose a smaller diamond now and later get a larger or brighter diamond. You should keep that in mind even when buying a pre-owned Tiffany & Co. engagement ring. Pre-owned gives you more buying power but you should still limit your expectations to what you can afford. You’ll be far better off with a reasonable ring now and an upgrade later than you will be driving yourself into debt and starting your marriage off with financial difficulty.
Tiffany & Co. engagement rings are lovely examples of the best of American jewelry. It’s understandable that you want one. Keep these two tips in mind and you just might be able to put one on the ring finger of the person you love.
