A common misconception about ring shopping is that you need to drop some serious cash for serious beauty, and that’s just not true! We’ve put together affordable engagement rings in the past, but today we’ve gone even further and found twenty (and honestly, this is just the first cut!) incredibly stunning and unique engagement rings that fall below $1000, so you can seize the day and ask your love to marry you this holiday season.
Indie Etsy jewelry designers, Catbird stars, and cult favorites alike, your love will be saying yes, yes, yes to these gorgeous sparklers. And even beyond the stellar price, these rings are strikingly unique, adorned with sapphires, rose petal designs, raw stones, vintage halo settings and marquise diamonds just to name a few.
I firmly believe that it’s the thought and gesture that matters, and quite frankly would rather spend extra money on a luxurious honeymoon getaway than have all that money spent on jewelry only I get to wear. But whatever your reason, don’t let out-of-budget engagement rings be the reason you can’t propose. Surely, one of these sparklers will fit your fancy.
