Genius Idea: Build Your Own Diamond Engagement Ring
Been to countless jewelry stores, but still can’t find your fantasy ring? Why not build a custom engagement ring online? It can be less expensive, and it’s easier than ever. Details, after the jump.
I was sorta surprised when I learned that eBay’s Diamond Ring Designer is one of the best-known places you can begin your online build-a-ring adventure. You can choose from a huge variety of sizes, cuts and settings, plus you learn a lot about diamonds when you’re making your dream ring.
Working with a specific budget? (Bet you are). Know exactly how many carats you want? (Hey, there’s nothing wrong with that.) Just use eBay’s custom slider settings to get ring options within your exact parameters.
All the stones on eBay are certified, and are backed with the shopping site’s usual buyer protection and other good stuff. Oh, and here’s a fun fact—eBay sells an engagement ring every 80 seconds! Crazy, right?!
These are some rings that have been created on Ebay—what do you think?
By the way, eBay is not the only game in town. Sears, Blue Nile and lots of other sites also have custom wedding ring building tools.
Where are you getting your engagement rings, ladies? Would you build your own or are you overwhelmed by the options? Happy hunting!
