Markchic Reviews: If you are on a budget, consider the following:
Instead of diamonds, look for white sapphires, which are much less expensive, yet still extremely beautiful.
Instead of platinum, look for white gold. Platinum is the most expensive metal because it is extremely hard to work with. Also, platinum is also very U.S.-centric; Italian jewelry, for example, has never featured platinum… white gold has always been the metal of choice as it allows the jeweler to be more creative and create more intricate designs. And it is less expensive than platinum!
