Diamonds epitomize the eternal characteristics of what a marriage should be -- blissful and forever
So no wedding is complete without a diamond, whether it is in the form of the engagement ring, or an additional piece of diamond wedding jewelry. For both engagement engagement rings and wedding jewelry, diamonds take the cake as the most popular, if not the only gem recognized as viable and acceptable for this milestone occasion.
Obviously not everybody has the wedding budget to splurge on a piece of diamond jewelry, especially if they have already spent money on a diamond engagement ring. The fancier rings can add an average of $2500 to your wedding budget, and it is likely that you would prefer to allocate this money to decorations, food and maybe even your post-wedding vacation, however, luckily, there are several ways you can help bring the cost a piece of diamond wedding jewelry down without reducing its value.
