This allows Brilliant Earth couples to maximize their budgets, so you can find your dream ring at any price point.

$1,300 Six-Prong Petite Comfort Fit Ring set with a Round 0.40 ct. Diamond
If you’re looking for a classic diamond engagement ring, start by considering what ring feature is the most important to you. For something truly distinctive try a fancy shape, like a marquise diamond. If you want to maximize sparkle, opt for a band with pavé accents or light-reflecting milgrain detail. If the most important factor is a larger center diamond, consider a simple solitaire band.
Brilliant Earth offers a wide selection of both natural and lab created diamonds. To help make your diamond engagement ring slightly more affordable, opt for a lab created diamond. Lab diamonds have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as mined diamonds and exhibit the same fire, scintillation, and sparkle. Lab created diamonds are also environmentally friendly, as they are ethically grown with little to no environmental impact.
