How To Buy A Cheap Engagement Ring

The process of buying a high-quality diamond ring for a cheap price is actually easy and fun! At least, that's the case when you shop at Hilltop Pawn!


You may want to do a little engagement ring research before you visit us. If you're buying a ring for the love of your life, take a little time to pay attention to her jewelry style. This can give you an idea of what will be the perfect ring for her. If possible, try to find out her ring size. If you don't know it, it's not a big deal; ring re-sizing can always be done later. If you do know her ring size, though, you can help be sure that the ring fits perfectly.


It's also a good idea for you to take a little time to think about your budget. Knowing your budget before you ever start shopping will come in handy when you get here. We don't want you to spend more than you're comfortable with! Plus, having a budget will give you a good starting point when you're looking at rings; after all, there's no reason to waste time looking at rings that are outside of your budget when we likely have plenty of rings that fit within your budget just fine. Don't worry about the old and outdated three months' salary rule or using some fancy engagement ring budget calculator. Instead, determine the amount that seems fair and reasonable to you. Chances are very good that we'll have something in stock that will suit the budget that you choose, no matter how small or big it might be.


Once you're ready, come to Hilltop Pawn to get started with shopping. We're here and ready to serve you six days a week. When you come in, you can walk around and browse our selection on your own if you feel more comfortable shopping that way. If you want some expert guidance with picking a ring, though, we're more than happy to tell you! Let one of our friendly and knowledgeable associates know how much your engagement ring budget is and what type of ring you're looking for. They'll show you your options and tell you a little more about each one.


​If you don't see the perfect ring while you're here, don't worry! We have more affordable diamond rings at our sister store, Greenbrier Pawn in Chesapeake. We'd be more than happy to tell you more about what we have in stock there. Also, visit us another day if you still have plenty of time; since we buy rings and jewelry from our customers daily, we always have something new for you to take a look at.


After you have found the perfect ring -- whether you're interested in white gold engagement rings, a halo engagement ring, or anything else! -- we'll assist you with the transaction. Of course, you can pay for the ring on the spot if you want. If you need a little more time, ask about our layaway program. Basically, you'll have to put some money down on the ring today, then you can come in and make payments until it's paid off. We'll give you 90 days, and once it's paid, you'll take the ring home with you. If you're planning ahead and want to make the purchase easier on you financially, layaway is an excellent option.


​Because we buy items of value, another option is to bring in some of your unwanted, valuable items to put their value toward your purchase. Some guys bring an old guitar or one of their luxury watches that they don't want anymore. We'll value your item fairly and put the value toward the purchase of the ring. If the value of your item is higher than the ring, we'll pay you the difference in cash. This is a fantastic way to get rid of items that you don't really want or need anymore anyway, all while making it much easier to buy a ring for the love of your life.

Where to Buy Cheap Wedding Rings

For so many people, the best option for purchasing an affordable engagement ring is to visit a pawn shop. In particular, though, you should look for a pawn shop that's known for having a wide selection of good-quality jewelry at affordable prices. If you're in or around Virginia Beach, the answer is simple: Hilltop Pawn.


Some think that lab-grown diamonds are the best choice if they're looking for an affordable engagement ring. Others choose a cheaper stone like cubic zirconia. Of course, if this is what you prefer, there is nothing wrong with these options. Just know that going with a non-diamond center stone is not your only option just because you're on a budget. At least, that's true if you shop with us!


Natural diamonds can actually be purchased for an affordable price; lab-created diamonds definitely aren't your only option. Buying a pre-owned ring is a great start for saving money. There are other ways you can save, too. For example, going with a smaller stone will likely save you a lot of money, and even a ring with a smaller diamond can be quite stunning. If you choose a halo setting, the fact that your diamond is on the smaller size likely won’t even be noticeable!


You also don't have to settle for a sterling silver ring if you don't want to. We have affordable yellow gold, rose gold, and white gold rings here! Avoid the high prices and come check out the cheap engagement rings that we have in stock here. Our jewelry experts will be more than happy to help you each step of the way, as they show you one beautiful option after another, all while keeping your budget in mind.

Jewelry Store or Pawn Shop for a Cheap Engagement Ring?

Many people head straight to a mall jewelry store when they're ready to purchase an engagement ring. This might seem like the natural first step. A jewelry store simply isn't the only place that sells flawless diamond rings. For one thing, if you're looking for authentic vintage or antique engagement rings, you likely won't find what you're looking for at a regular jewelry store. They tend to sell what's popular and trendy rather than focusing on unique engagement rings or vintage jewelry. Even if you want a designer or trendy ring, though, a jewelry store might not be your best bet. It's often hard to find affordable diamond engagement rings when you're shopping at a jewelry store. Their goal is usually to charge as much money as possible for these rings, and that's reflected in the price tag. You could easily go over your budget at a mall jewelry store if you aren't careful; if you do stick within your budget, you likely won't be getting as much for your money as you otherwise could have.


For many, a pawn shop is a far better choice. At least, that's true if you choose the right pawn shop, like Hilltop Pawn and Jewelry here in Virginia Beach. We have all of the best engagement rings for the best prices. We strive to offer many different styles. If it's a vintage look that you like, check out one of our authentic antique rings. If you're looking for big-name designers, we have all of that, too. Your savings with us will be significant over a traditional jewelry store, and you'll get a lot more for your money. Plus, you'll still enjoy a high-end experience. After all, instead of being like a normal pawn shop, we work hard to be more like a fine jewelry store. This is true with our inventory, atmosphere, and customer service. You can enjoy in-person guidance while you're shopping here, whether you're looking for a classic solitaire or more unique alternative engagement rings.


Not only is Hilltop Pawn known for our affordable, high-end jewelry, but we're also known for providing the best customer service. Whether you're shopping for a solitaire engagement ring, vintage engagement rings, or any other style, we are here to help. Come look at our cheap diamond rings, and we're sure you'll find something you or your partner will love! Also, don't forget about our Chesapeake location, Greenbrier Pawn.
