Affordable proposal ideas and diamond engagement rings


Here at Mad About Diamonds we appreciate that financially times are tough and as such we have a huge selection of diamond engagement rings at a range of prices.  If you have chosen to take the next big step and propose to your loved one, there are a couple of things that you need to get just right. Firstly, you need to get the perfect engagement ring. While there is currently a trend towards platinum marital jewellery, white gold engagement rings are an equally viable option, without the platinum price tag.  If your girlfriend isn’t the type to circle pictures in catalogues or leave open websites, a clever trick is to take a look at her existing collection. If she has a collection of marquise cut stones then it is likely that a marquise cut engagement ring will go down well.

The next part that you need to get perfect is the proposal, which on a limited budget may seem daunting. While proposing over a box of fried chicken probably won’t go down too well, there are a few low cost ideas you can try. Firstly, ask her father, I know this may seem cheesy but it’s a cheap way to earn brownie points.  It’s also a great way to get a second opinion on the diamond engagement ring that you have selected.  Keeping it simple is another great way to keep the costs down, while you may have been thinking Paris. Perhaps, a romantic stroll through the park and a well-stocked Parisian style picnic will create an equally intimate setting.

The key to both the perfect proposal and diamond engagement ring is the same, a little thought. You should know the person that you are proposing too and will have a host of shared memories to draw inspiration from. If you both share a passion for grunge music, then why not propose to a favourite song or dress the part? Similarly when choosing the ring, if you like a square cut engagement ring and think she will as well,  she probably will.

At Mad About Diamonds we craft all of our engagement rings UK based and as such you can be assured that they are of the highest quality.
