The Grooms Choice:

  • Men's wedding rings - Men's rings are usually more expensive than ours as they typically contain more metal. But there are some tips and tricks you can employ to help keep the price down.

As I have mentioned numerous times throughout this site, the first thing to do is to know your budget. Set a price you can afford and stick to it. When you go into the jewellers tell them what your budget is and ask them NOT to show you any rings above this price, after all getting cheap wedding rings means not going over budget.

Some jewellers will use the following tried and tested technique to get you to spend more. This involves bringing you a selection of rings, some below your budget (which they will show you first), then a few around your budget and finally some that will be above your budget.

This technique relies on human nature as they know you will be drawn to the ones above your budget and they hope you will be tempted to stretch your budget to buy the more expensive ring.

DON'T FALL INTO THIS TRAP!!! Be up front and tell them, if they bring you any rings over budget you will leave and buy the rings elsewhere. I know that sounds very dramatic, but it's cheap wedding rings you're after and it could save you a lot of money.

Another valuable tip when choosing cheap wedding bands is not to immediately buy from the jewellers where you got your engagement ring, even if you felt they gave you got a great price.

You should treat the purchase of your cheap wedding rings as an entirely separate transaction and get at least three quotes from different jewellers.

Hopefully this and the linked articles above will help dispel the myth that cheap wedding rings don't exist.

Like anything else in the wedding industry, if you know where to look you'll always be able to save money.
