4 Easy Steps to the Perfect Holiday Proposal
The holidays are a perfect time to propose. Snow is falling, lights are shining and family is near. But for most, proposing is intimidating and it’s hard to know where to start. Luckily, as your friend, we’re here to break it down for you into four easy steps! Right in time for the holiday season.
Step One: Choose your setting
The first step to getting the “yes” is creating the dream ring. Our rings are completely customizable because you start with the setting first. From vintage-inspired to classic, we have endless options to choose from. Decide whether your bride-to-be has more of a simple style or if she loves the extra bling, and then find the ring to match! Most of our settings can be made in white, yellow or rose gold, as well as platinum.
Step Two: Choose your stone
Get ready to see your ring come to life in this next step. As a direct diamond importer, we offer the prettiest diamonds for your money because we buy directly from the diamond cutters themselves. We hand-pick the diamonds with the most sparkle in each grade, leaving the others behind. By cutting out all the middlemen and their markups, we are able to pass along the best price to our customers. No matter your budget, we have the diamond for you.
If your future fiancée isn’t wowed by diamonds, we have other options that will make her jaw drop. We have thousands of loose sapphires in the prettiest hues, from our exclusive Ice Blue sapphire to our stunning peach sapphires. If she’s more traditional, opt for our gorgeous traditional blue sapphires that are a rich, deep blue. We also have loose rubies as well, making her ring one-of-a-kind. White sapphires are also a great alternative to a diamond with similar color and sparkle for a lower price!
Step Three: Choosing a financing option
We understand that cost is a big factor for many. That’s why we offer ways to make buying the ring easier on your finances.
One option is financing your purchase with our Shane Co. credit card through Wells Fargo. There are no annual fees and no prepayment penalties, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of monthly payments. You can pay your bill, view statements and set up automatic payments online. You can find out even more information about our credit card here.
Another great option is our free (and easy!) layaway program. There are no applications, no contracts, no interest or fees and it’s 100% refundable and returnable. This can be done in-store or online! If you’re shopping online, add your items to your shopping cart, check out using the layaway option and schedule your payments. Then, once the final payment is made, we’ll FedEx your jewelry straight to your door! We do require at least one payment a month and a down payment towards the piece. Learn more here.
