Diamond might be a girl’s best friend, but they are not your bank account’s best friend. As gratifying as it is to wear a giant rock on your ring finger, you may want to think otherwise.
Today’s engagement rings average out at more than $6,000, but what if we told you that a $1500 engagement ring of identical quality is possible?
You’ll never find good diamond engagement rings under 1500, but moissanite is an ideal alternative. Let’s take a look at your options for a 1500 engagement ring.
Moissanite Engagement Rings for Women Under $1500
Moissanite is a diamond-like mineral found chiefly in meteorites, yet is rare on earth. Scientists have discovered a way of manufacturing them in a lab using silicon carbide. The lab growing process guarantees both consistency and quality in every gemstone.
All our 14K/18K Moissanite ring bands use the highest industry standard yellow, white, and rose gold mixtures.
The Round Solitaire
This classic round solitaire ring features six prongs holding your moissanite gemstone. The average color is D/E/F with a clarity of VVS1. This ideal cut ring comes with a dainty yet durable 1.7mm band that stands against the wear of day-to-day life.
The Oval Halo
This unique moissanite ring uses the classic oval shape, forming a natural l focal point. The simple oval halo comes with four prongs and scalloped pavé moissanite.
The 1.7mm band is delicate yet sturdy, and the moissanite has a minimum clarity of VVS1 and average color within the D/E/F range. This is one of the best rings under 1500 dollars you can find.
The Emerald Solitaire
The Emerald Solitaire is a true classic on a 1.7mm band of rose, yellow, or white gold. This dainty emerald ring is of the highest quality and starts at only $450.
Solitaire Engagement Rings Under 1500 Dollars
‘Solitaire’ comes from the Latin word ‘solus,’ which means alone. If you buy a solitaire ring, you are purchasing a ring with a single gemstone.
When it comes to engagement rings, you will never find diamond rings under 1500 dollars with a solitaire configuration.
The Four Prong Round Solitaire
This simple round gemstone is set with four prongs around a 1.7mm band for an elegant and minimalist look.
The Oval Solitaire
Our Oval Moissanite Solitaire comes with four prongs around a classic 1.7mm band in gold or platinum.
The oval shape makes the gemstone appear bigger than it is. For an engagement ring that stands out, an oval cut solitaire ring is a perfect choice.
The Princess Solitaire
A princess-cut moissanite solitaire ring makes the most of your money dollar-for-dollar. Princess cut solitaire gemstones give you a higher flash and sparkle due to the wider table on top of the moissanite.
This four-pronged ring is an ideal choice for a 1500 dollar engagement ring — in fact, prices start at only $450.
Pavé Engagement Rings Under $1500
A pavé wedding ring contains small gemstones across the shank of the ring. Metal prongs or beads hold these gemstones in place, creating the effect of a continuous line of gemstones across the front of your ring.
