wholesale engagement rings

Five to 10 years ago, we would have not discussed the issue of wholesale engagement rings. Those were the days when couples believed that, engagement rings had to be exclusive, expensive and extravagant. Jewelers encouraged that notion because it worked with their sales strategy. Conventions like two months earnings on an engagement ring and 'diamonds are a must', were strictly followed. Young couples started to spend beyond their means, financial debts caused mental strain and tensions. Basically it was mainly jewelers that were reaping the benefit of all that spending or rather, over spending.

As the prices of gold, precious gems and diamonds started their upward march, it so happened that world economies started to stagger and falter too - this had the (good) effect of making people more cost conscious.  Couples decided to spend wisely on their engagement rings, diamonds were made dispensable and suddenly silver and even lower priced metal options like titanium and stainless steel became acceptable. Young brides showed their individuality in terms of design concepts and gemstone preference. With this easing of engagement  ring conventions, the range of designs that were 'suitable' for engagement rings also widened.
