Welcome back to our budget week series! Everyone shops on a budget, even if that budget is “unlimited.” This week we want to highlight some of our favorites in our most popular categories, so you can see just how far your dollar goes with Raymond Lee Jewelers and Diamonds by Raymond Lee.
After yesterday’s lovely designer engagement rings, you’re probably already smitten with at least one – right? Well if not, we’re back today with more. This time, we’re showing you how you can stretch your budget by shopping “ready-to-wear.” These rings are a mix of estate engagement rings from Raymond Lee Jewelers, and in-house creations from Diamonds by Raymond Lee (opening next month!)
Ready-to-wear rings are a fantastic option because you get what you see – there’s no guesswork! You can customize with a different diamond, of course, but if you like it the way it is, you can walk out the door with your engagement ring that day. Even if you aren’t sure about sizing, you can always bring it back after you’ve proposed and the first re-sizing is free. So, without further ado, let’s see our favorite engagement rings under $5000.
