When's the best time of year to buy engagement and wedding rings? We're making the case for the weekend that starts November 27th 2020 - after all, it's Black Friday weekend!
If you love to make your money go further (us too), you're probably already shopping Black Friday wedding deals on everything from bridal beauty to bridesmaid dresses. But you can also bag a bargain when it comes to your forever jewellery.
Whether you're looking for a diamond engagement sparkler or the perfect wedding rings, Black Friday sees one-off sales and discount codes from many jewellers, ranging across affordable high street and spendier high end. Some of these are one day only; others will last for the whole weekend. And don't forget Cyber Monday (30th November 2020) for some extra deals.
The best bit? All the discounts are available online, so you can shop from the comfort of your sofa.
Before you buy, dedicate some time to looking at different engagement and wedding rings, so you know the type of style you're most drawn to. However amazing the discount, only buy a ring you're really happy with - remember, it's not a bargain if you don't truly love it! You also need to consider, when buying a wedding ring, whether it'll fit with your engagement ring. And don't forget to get those all-important finger measurements for a perfect fit.
Let the Black Friday savings begin!
