How to Find the Perfect Engagement Ring on Layaway this Christmas
Christmas is coming soon and that means engagement season is upon us!
We all know someone, maybe a friend, family member, or neighbor, who is planning to ask their significant other the most special question.
And what better to match that question than a special ring?
The tough part now is finding a unique diamond that is also affordable. What better way than layaway? Here are our tips on finding the best engagement rings on layaway that are guaranteed to make her happy:
What to look for when buying an engagement ring on layaway
What is the ring made up of? What kind of texture on the band are you hoping for? Are the materials of quality?
Is the band the correct size, or could it be resized? You’ll need to know the ring size ahead of time. If you don’t already, try asking a friend of hers to secretly find out.
Plan your budget ahead of time so that shopping is easier. Also consider sales, hidden fees, or additional costs when purchasing.
The 4 C’s
The 4 C’s, cut, color, clarity, and carat are the general rule of thumb for determining the quality of your engagement ring. Always be sure to ask about these when shopping.
Lab grown diamonds vs. natural diamonds
Unfortunately, more and more faux diamonds are being sold without customers having any real knowledge of what they are or are not buying. The best way to avoid accidentally purchasing a lab grown diamond ring is to visit a store with state-of-the-art technology that can test for quality.

Department stores offer layaway for Christmas, but anybody can get the same jewelry there. If you’re looking for something unique, you’ll need to dig a little deeper.
Queen of Pawns is a great place to find hidden treasures like natural diamonds for unbeatable prices.
At our pawn shops in Florida, we are fully equipped with powerful technology that allows us to identify natural diamonds from lab grown diamonds; we even go above and beyond to ensure you get the best quality diamond for your money by planning an appointment with our GIA certified pawnbrokers.
Next, you should ensure that whomever you are buying from:
- knows the value of the diamond and understands more than just what it looks like,
- is well-liked or well-known by the community (check reviews),
- and acts friendly and helpful throughout your purchasing experience
Finding the perfect engagement ring on layaway doesn’t have to be difficult or too-far out of your budget. Just as your partner will remember being asked forever, you will also never forget the moment you bought the ring.
