Emerald, sapphire, diamond, opal, amethyst, pearl... Not usually words that go hand-in-hand with 'affordable'. When it comes to that once-in-a-lifetime purchase of an engagement ring, it can be hard to find something that won't leave you eating baked beans for the next three years. Sure, it's a very important gift – perhaps the most important you'll ever give – but if you don't have the funds, you don't have the funds. And we don't recommend taking out a mortgage for a ring.
Below, we've searched for engagement-worthy rings under £2,000. So it's not the price of a bag of chips, but it is a proposal, people. You only have to do this once!
Still not convinced? Take a look for yourself and discover some of the most beautiful 'cheap' engagement rings on the market. We promise that these affordable engagement rings are well worth saying yes to.
