Sponsored Post DisclaimerJewelry bargain wedding band setBuying the ring for that first question — that all-important question that gets couples started down the road on their next chapter together — tends to come with a lot of pressure. What style? What size? And especially, how damn much will this cost?

JewelryBargain Emerald Engagement RingWhen the company’s owner witnessed how hard it was for young couples to afford a beautiful engagement ring at high retail prices, especially after the economic decline in the late ’00s. He saw no need for couples to settle for a ring that was less than what they envisioned just due to budget constraints, so as a third-generation jewelry manufacturer, he took matters into his own hands.

JewelryBargain was born, as was its tag line of “Same Quality – Better Prices,” a slogan the company steadfastly stands by.
