Buying an Engagement Ring in Dublin

White engagement ring icon

You’ve decided to take the next step in the journey of life by proposing to your loved one. But who should you get a ring from? Should you buy an engagement ring in Dublin or online from further afield. Both options are perfectly feasible and going to a tradition jeweller has more advantages than purely buying a ring online. A lot of online stores use computer generated images to showcase their rings. While this is excellent at showing what an engagement ring could look like, it is not 100% accurate when compared to seeing one in real life. If you go to your local jeweller you will be able to experience, touch and see a wide range of real engagement rings of different styles and materials.

But which jeweller should you visit? There are many jewellery stores in Dublin who sell engagement rings and it is important that you do not simply opt for the cheapest, but rather an established and trusted jeweller (like us) who makes high-quality engagement rings with the best-value prices. We are a jewellery manufacturer whose focus is creating solid pieces of jewellery over a boutique store experience. This mindset, amongst other techniques, has enabled us to bring high-quality engagement rings to the people of Dublin that cost up to 60% less than high-street boutique stores. In fact, the same ring we produce could sell for three times as much on the high street.

Buying an Engagement Ring Is Not Only About the Cost

While the price of a ring is a major factor, it is not the only one you should consider. There is the build quality and aftercare that should be taken into consideration. Cheaper made engagement rings are often of a poorer quality, they have hollowed out shanks and made from sub-standard materials. Because of the way we have structured our business, we can provide quality made and solid built engagement rings that often sell three times their worth. On top of this, we provide a legendary after care plan which includes a lifetime of free polishes, cleans and inspections.

Should You First Get a Promise Ring and Then an Engagement Ring?

Promise rings have been around for ages with many believing they date back to the era of the Visigoths. They symbolise a promise between two people with the most common one being the promise to marry. A promise ring can cost much less than an engagement ring and giving one to your partner is a personal choice. Many of our clients are worried that their partner wont like their engagement ring (or may even say no) and decide to use a promise ring to propose. A promise ring provides a much cheaper alternative with Sterling silver and cubic zirconia rings (that look identical to the real thing) starting off from as low as €30. They are also a fantastic opportunity to offer your partner the chance if designing their own ring or choosing one they like best.
