Valentine’s Day is the second most popular day for marriage proposals (behind St. Nick and that whole Christmas brigade). While I am personally a fan of more obscure days (like proposing to her on YOUR birthday which most women would never expect), Valentine’s Day is, for some women, the Holy Grail of proposals. If this is your case, embrace it with gusto and indulge her with this one teensy weensy romantic ideal…
Keeping your ring to under $1,500 doesn’t have to be tough. Look, that’s a totally respectable budget. If you’re a regular bloke with a regular job, you don’t have $10,000 to burn on a ring, albeit a gorgeous one that can be passed on for generations to come ;)
The best way to keep it under $1,500 is to go for a bit more of a unique ring and to get it from Blue Nile. If you read this blog, you know that I am an avid BN supporter. My jewelry box looks like a BN showcase…that said, it’s because they rock and they get slammin’ products for boss prices. This week is even better because it’s The Annual Wedding Ring Event. That means an extra 15% off select diamond rings. Boom! (This all ends by Jan. 27th though so move your butt).
Keep in mind that you can get a conventional engagement ring at BN for under $1,500 by choosing your diamond and setting yourself. Since I will not know specifically which diamonds are available when you read this post (hey, you could be visiting me from the future after all), I’ll let you figure that out with a quick visit to their website. As for pre-designed, ready to rock rings under $1,500 waiting for a quick click order, these are my top choices…
This ring is gorgeous. I love the look of white gold with sapphires. Add in a few diamonds and you’ve got that wow factor! The fact that it’s a band is quite unusual but it definitely works! Oh, there are limited supplies on this particular ring so snap it up now if this is what you want!
I’ve been saying it for years – gemstone rings are the future. This beauty drives the point home. Delicate, stunning and a feast for the eyes, she won’t be able to say no (unless you never do the dishes!).
Morganite and Diamond Halo Cushion Ring $980
WOW! Every single thing about this ring is stunning. The morganite and diamonds coupled with rose gold is too romantic for words! It’s so pretty I can hardly stand it and, let’s face it, the price is mind-bogglingly low! It’s the perfect steal.
There are tons of other options. Check it out for yourself and let me know how your proposal goes down!
