In a perfect world, you could visit a fine jeweler and pick anything from the case that strikes your fancy. However, when most people shop for rings, earrings, pendants, and other selections, they must keep a budget in mind. In fact, you may think that ordering custom jewelry costs more than you can afford. The truth is, custom-made items may be more affordable than you imagine and here are some good reasons to check out this option the next time you shop.
The Importance of Price
Do you plan to finance your purchase? If so, you can sit down and decide what kind of payments you can handle. When taking out a loan (or using a credit card), you may be able to afford a larger purchase by just adding a few dollars to the monthly payment amount. Here is an example:
Prices vary according to what you want but let’s suppose you have two selections. One is a lovely engagement ring that’s in the display case $(1,000), and the other is a custom ring that you have help creating ($2000).
If you place the $1000 purchase on your credit card, your payment may be as low as $20 a month. Yet, for an extra $20 a month, you can have custom jewelry. This may not be that hard to work into your budget.
Did you know that many fine jewelers let you customize items like rings? For example, you choose the setting, diamonds, and type of metal. There a number of ways you can customize your purchase to give you what you need.
Why Not Get What You Really Want?
If you’re going to spend money on something as important as an engagement ring or other fine items you should get what you want. These things are designed to last a long time, and custom jewelry is something that’s uniquely yours.
