December is supposedly the most popular time of the year to pop the all-important question – Will you marry me?

This is certainly fitting, since the festive period is full of love and warmth. But however, what makes this decision to propose even greater is that November is the perfect month to make the important purchase, the paramount engagement ring.  In advance of December, with only a month to go, now is definitely the time to get organised.

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is the name given to the Friday that follows Thanksgiving celebrations in the US. It takes place on the fourth Thursday of November and this year falls on the 27th.

The date marks a shopping craze, where shops hold highly promoted sales and open very early. It is essentially seen as the start of the festive shopping season and nearly every shop takes place in one way or another.

 

What is Cyber Monday?

Unlike Black Friday, which has been around for several centuries, Cyber Monday is a relatively new phenomenon. It takes place the following Monday after Black Friday, and marks further sales. However, Cyber Monday only takes place online, and not in-store.

Cyber Monday this year falls on November 30th.

 

What Black Friday engagement ring deals were available last year?

Unsurprisingly, there will be some winner discounts to be had on engagement rings for both women and men.

The most important point to decipher, apart from the recipient of course, is the budget. This will help to narrow down your choices, including which diamond and material with choices including white gold, yellow gold or platinum.

An interesting and important point to note is that the engagement should actually match the wedding ring in material. This works to prevent any damage caused by the rubbing together of two different metals.

 

Why is Black Friday an excellent time to buy an engagement ring?

Black Friday sees prices fall to well below their normal sale price. This is important because it means buyers might be able to afford a more expensive ring, that would now be within their budget.

Despite the frantic sales and in-store closure, we still offer virtual appointments and phone calls to run through the best sale options for your budget.

What are the best engagement rings you can buy in 2020?

Engagement ring choices are certainly subject to fashion trends, with many taking inspiration from celebrities, royal and even Instagram. For instance, back in 2010 when Kate Middleton and Prince William announced their engagement, several brands have designed similar rings taking inspiration from her 12-carat blue sapphire oval and surrounding solitaire diamonds. Further trends do not just include fashion but also sustainability with environmental ethics playing a major part in the decision making of choosing an engagement ring.

While the sale products have not yet been announced, customers can expect great prices on a number of popular and high-end engagement rings.

 

How much should one spend on an engagement ring?

There was once a saying, which is now outdated, that an engagement ring should cost no less than three months’ salary. This figure has now been lowered to the equivalent of just one month’s salary.

It is, however, totally up to the customer on how much they want to spend on an engagement ring. What is truly important is the style and design, effectively making it the perfect fit for the recipient.
