Beautiful Yet Cheap Engagement Rings Under $100

Updated on September 5, 2014

Engagement rings under $100 are beautiful too!

Once upon a time, it was custom for every bride-to-be to receive an expensive gold ring studded with the most valued of stones, the diamond. However, in the modern world, rules have become more lax. Many women now appreciate inexpensive engagement rings as much as they would "the real thing." I, for instance, received a gorgeous two-piece engagement ring from my fiancee' that replaces white gold with sterling silver and diamond with cubic zirconia. For all intents and purposes, it looks and feels like an expensive engagement ring!

Why are women happy to receive a cheaper alternative? The reasons are numerous, but most importantly, we fear losing an expensive piece of jewellery, or exposing it to daily wear and tear. I know that I would personally be devastated if I were to lose or ruin an item on which I knew my fiancee' had spent a fortune. What is more, these rings can easily be replaced if they should meet a miserable fate for one reason or another.

On the other hand, perhaps you are a man who wants to buy an expensive ring, but are facing a moment of economic difficulty. If so, these engagement rings under $100 will make an excellent substitute while you save up enough money to buy the ring of her dreams.

No matter your reasoning, these rings are sure to satisfy your beloved. Happy shopping!

1. Platinum Plated Sterling Silver Solitaire Cubic Zirconia Ring

So authentic looking that you will never know it is not a diamond ring

This gorgeous engagement ring from the "100 Facets Collection" on Amazon is all about high quality at a low price.

Much like a 1 carat diamond ring, this inexpensive alternative shines and shimmers, especially when you go out in the sun. In fact, many customers have stated that, upon casual glance, you cannot tell the difference between the CZ stone used for this ring, and a real diamond.

The platinum plated sterling silver band is resistant to unattractive tarnishing even after years of use, and gives the ring an added brilliance required from any engagement ring.

What is more, this cheap engagement ring comes in a large range of sizes, from 4 at the smallest end to 8 on the largest.

For a couple on a low budget, or for someone who wishes to substitute her authentic diamond ring with a less expensive version for daily use, you cannot find a ring much better than this!

Sometimes, it can be a lovely idea to purchase both engagement ring and wedding ring at the same time, especially if the two rings form a perfect pair!

In this wedding-engagement ring set, you receive two pure sterling silver rings with a total of 12 beautiful shimmering white diamonds embedded within. Each stone weights .08 carats.

These rings are brimming with elegance, style and class with their delicate and detailed design. What is more, the ring will not overwhelm your hand as some other larger engagement rings might. This, coupled with the brilliant shine these rings give off, make it one of the best sets on Amazon in terms of value for money.

3. Bling Jewelry Sterling Silver CZ Engagement Wedding Ring Set

Another engagement-wedding ring set with class and style.

The high quality and splendour of the two rings in this wedding-engagement ring set is what has surprised a number of people. In fact, one man who bought this ring exclaimed that these rings are actually far more attractive than the original diamond rings he and his wife had bought!

The set consists of two sterling silver rings embedded with a noticeable cubic zirconia stone in the centre, and flanked by three baguette-shaped cubic zirconia stones on either side. The shining sterling silver of the band is protected with rhodium plating. The result is an engagement ring with every semblance of a true white gold diamond ring.

Be prepared to receive many compliments when you put on these rings for the first time!

4. Sterling Silver Round Diamond Ladies Engagement Halo Style Bridal Ring

A fabulous deal on an unusual diamond engagement ring

It is usually quite the challenge to find a diamond engagement ring under $100. However, every now and then, great discounts pop up on Amazon, and this is one of them!

This gorgeous sterling silver diamond engagement ring for women is bursting with character and style. It contains a total of 27 sparkling white diamonds set on a lovely silver band.

The most common comments customers make about this ring is how delicate, light, and comfortable it is. Many have remarked on how the picture makes it appear much larger and bulkier than it actually is in real life. Overall, it has received 4.5 stars out of 5 for all these reasons.

5. Bling Jewelry Silver Infinity Round CZ Engagement - This beautiful CZ and sterling silver engagement ring is the epitome of elegance.

When I first laid eyes on this stunning sterling silver engagement ring with CZ stones, I was convinced that it was a real diamond ring.

In the centre of the ring lies a gorgeous cubic zirconia stone from which radiate four streams of smaller stones along the band. These beautiful clear stones do a wonderful job of catching the light as you go about your daily work.

What is more, the high polished band is covered with rhodium plating to preserve the shine of this lovely ring. You can easily expect this ring to last for years and years without much evidence of wear and tear!

Who needs an authentic diamond ring when a product as beautiful as this is available for purchase!

6. Sterling Silver and White Sapphire Journey Ring

Satisfy your sweetheart with imitation white sapphires!

This cheap engagement ring under $100 is one of those with a truly unique design. It is for this reason, and more, that this ring has received over 70 rave reviews on Amazon.

The high polished sterling silver band divides in two and overlaps to form a simple cross formation. Along one of the two bands that form the cross are a total of five beautiful stones that resemble white sapphires.

The only thing you of which must be careful when buying this ring is that the size is right. If you ask for a size 5 ring, for example, expect a size 5.5/6.

7. Round Brilliant Cubic Zirconia Sterling Silver Engagement Ring - A gorgeous engagement ring with a five star rating

I can guarantee that you will fall over when you see the discount being provided on this sterling silver engagement ring with a 1.5 carat cubic zirconia stone.

Everyone who has given this ring a rating has said that it is so brilliant that you can hardly distinguish it from a real diamond ring. The six prongs do an excellent job of securing the brilliant round cut cubic zirconia stone in place.

The best part is that this ring even comes with a free ring box which you can use when you propose!

      We sell inexpensive engagement rings in Etsy too. I start my business with that with the same reason of many of you, a real diamond is too expensive for daily wearing.

      This is a really valuable lens: so many couples struggle with debt or feeling financially strapped when they first start out (or even the entirety of the marriage!) the rings you provided will really be helpful to them. Pinned to my Weddings and Thrifty Living Board.

      Stunning collection of rings. I have some estate jewelry which includes used diamonds and a used engagement ring to sell. It's definitely easier to buy than it is to sell! Thankfully I searched pre owned engagement rings and found a great site called HaveYouSeentheRing.

      It is a shame that men get put under so much pressure to buy an expensive ring. It is a little out of control. Great Lens!

      I can relate to this, and it's very encouraging to find out that you don't have to settle for poor quality just because you're under a budget.Another great lens from H :)

      I was trying to sell an engagement ring, it was my grandmother's; it's platinum, but you'd have to add a zero to the price. Very nice choices in the $100 range; cool Lens.
