Cheap Gold Wedding Rings
Gold is one of the most popular precious metals for wedding jewelry just because it has a stable value in time and it is quite accessible for most people. Even if you can find on the market harder metals such as platinum or titanium, gold continues to be at the top of the list concerning buyers’ preferences. For those who are looking to purchase affordable and beautiful wedding bands, here are some tips to help them choose gold rings and to save some money as well.
Firstly, you have to know that pure gold is extremely soft and most jewelry pieces you can find are made from alloys of gold and other metals. The karat number indicates the percentage of purity and it has different prices. Therefore, 14 K has 58.3% gold and it is cheaper than 18 K or 24 K ones. The 10 K has even less gold, but it is not too easy to find. White gold karat has the same significance, with the difference that the silver shade is given by other containing metals.
The lowest prices you can find are available on the internet – about 130$ for a 2 mm plain simple band. The firm’s website is affordableweddingbands.com and you can see there various special offers that will reach about 400$ for 8 mm items with no decorative elements. Fancy two color models usually cost 600 – 700$ for medium sizes. On weddingringsdepot.com, a nice 3 mm pale rose band made from 14 K gold is only 250$. Two tone gold rings with the same composition but wider will be about 350$. A 14 K item of 6.5 mm width, having polished models, golden shades and finished edges costs about 500-600$ on the same internet retailer’s site.
Maybe the best deal you can get is to choose wedding sets made of two or three items: a ring for her, another one for him and even an engagement-matching piece that will fit with the other two. Bandsforhands.com will show you some accessible duo sets with simple polished at 410$. A nice yellow gold Diamond inspiration model in two pieces is 500$. A set for her made of 14 K yellow gold and a quarter carat diamond, which contains wedding and engagement rings, is 300$ on the overstock.com site. The weddingringsdepot.com will offer you trio sets for about 1500$, including nice diamond settings for the engagement ring. Anyway, many other sites will show you great packages so you won’t search too long for matching wedding jewelries.
