The criteria determining the price of an engagement ring
The value of an engagement ring varies from one model to another. The prices set by jewellery stores are based on various criteria that make a ring more or less expensive. Among the points to be considered to find the right model at the right price, are:

To do this, couples can refer to the four Cs: carat, cut, clarity and colour, which determine the characteristics of gemstones. Thus, a ring with several stones will not necessarily have the same price as a very high quality diamond solitaire.

Among the most common are 750 gold and 925 silver, which are affordable for all budgets. Platinum is considered the most expensive material, compared with gold and silver.
Apart from the main features, the value of the engagement ring can also differ depending on the brand or its place of purchase. The same applies to the design because some models are rarer than others, which creates an important contrast.
