Proposal season is officially here, which means it's time to let you in on a little secret: Black Friday sales for engagement rings have finally arrived. Some of our favorite jewelry brands are delivering massive Cyber Week sales this year, which means you can start shopping for the perfect piece at a fraction of the usual cost. And engagement rings aren't the only jewelry on sale this holiday season, because Black Friday wedding ring sales are 100% a thing too. "Couples should strongly consider shopping for engagement and wedding jewelry on Black Friday or during Cyber Monday if they are looking to save BIG," says Mike Lastrina and Myran Mahroo, owners and co-founders of Modern Gents. "The majority of prices are slashed nearly in half, taking a load of financial pressure off of your overall wedding budget."

While some of these Black Friday engagement ring sales are available in stores, most are accessible online as well. But, if shopping online for such an important bauble feels overwhelming, don't stress. Virtual jewelry shopping is becoming more common as brands develop revolutionary technology to enhance the digital browsing experience. Plus, you can instantly connect with experts to ask questions and get assistance with finding the ring. And, since sales on engagement rings and wedding bands are rare, these Black Friday sales for 2022 are the perfect opportunity to find a great piece for less.

With the help of jewelry experts, we're breaking down how to shop for Black Friday engagement and wedding ring sales, including when to start shopping and how to shop within your proposal timeline. Then, to make your life easier, we've rounded up the Black Friday and Cyber Monday jewelry sales from our favorite retailers that you can shop now. (Consider it our holiday gift to you.)

How To Shop for Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands on Black Friday and Cyber Week

There are a few things to know before you start shopping for an engagement ring during Black Friday and Cyber Week. First, you'll want to have a budget set in place. According to The Knot 2021 Jewelry and Engagement Study, the average spend on an engagement ring in the US is $6,000. Our data also found that the average cost of a female wedding band is $1,100, while the average cost of a men's wedding band is $550. Since these numbers represent the national average, they can simply be used as a guideline for your purchase. Your engagement ring and wedding band budget is a personal choice between you and your partner.

Sales tax and shipping fees are also important considerations to keep in mind when setting your engagement ring budget. Some brands may offer free shipping in their Black Friday engagement ring sale, which is a great perk—but if it's not included, these added costs can add up quickly. (Remember this when crafting your budget, because the last thing you want to do is overspend due to unexpected fees.)

Once you've set a budget, it's time to start researching sales. "Black Friday starts as soon as Thanksgiving ends, but every year these sales start earlier because we know people are seeking value and planning ahead, "says Erica Scott, vice president of KAY Marketing and eCommerce. "KAY is offering early Black Friday offers and promotions all the way through the season, so start the process to find the ring style of your dreams, ask all the right questions, so you will be prepared to make the purchase when you find the ring you love!"

Now you're ready to shop 2022 Black Friday engagement ring deals. To make an informed (and legitimate) purchase, here's how to find a trustworthy Black Friday or Cyber Monday sale on engagement rings.

Evaluate Sale Details Before Buying

The most important component of a Black Friday or Cyber Week engagement ring sale is the discount itself. Since diamonds and gemstones are high in value, it's unlikely that retailers have the ability to drastically mark down their prices. As a result, online retailers are capitalizing on sales for lab-grown diamonds and alternative stones. "We've seen strong demand for simulated diamond alternatives on Black Friday, Cyber Week and other holiday sales. These brilliant stones are sustainably and ethically sourced, conflict-free, and their price tag is a fraction of what a diamond costs," explains Lastrina and Mahroo. They also added that this option has been particularly appealing to millennials and Gen-Z audiences, who have advocated for chapter alternatives to traditional diamonds.

It's also recommended to shop through brands that offer reports and appraisals—as well as reviews from real clients—that confirm your diamond or gemstone purchase is legitimate. "Ensure that your retailer provides you with the appropriate reports and appraisals to confirm that your diamond has been properly evaluated," says Sean Kell, CEO of Blue Nile. "For example, all engagement rings purchased from Blue Nile include a grading report from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), which serves as a grading system for the jewelry industry, along with an appraisal that states the value of the piece compared to relevant market data. Customer reviews also serve as another source of confidence when making a purchase decision."

You might also be able to save some money just by forgoing the in-store experience. "The online experience is almost night and day with going to a jewelry store in person. Online, couples can browse as much as they want, at their convenience, without the pressure to buy anything," says Lastrina and Mahroo. "You can really look at every piece thoroughly, refine what you're looking for, and ultimately come out a lot more satisfied. The best jewelry companies offer free returns and exchanges, so if the jewelry you order online isn't what you expected, you can fix the problem with minimal hassle."

Work Within Your Timeline

Unsurprisingly, the holidays are the most popular time of year to get engaged—that's why we call it "proposal season," after all. It's also a great time of year to buy an engagement ring. Spikes in ring sales can be attributed to couples spending more time with loved ones and the festive feel of the season, which might accelerate the desire to get engaged. Some might also want to attend holiday parties as fiancés. Regardless of the reason, it's crucial to work within your timeline when purchasing an engagement ring.

Experts recommend buying a ring at least two months before your preferred proposal date, as this allows ample time for production and delivery. The exception: There are a few online jewelry retailers, like Modern Gents, that can deliver a ring to your doorstep in as little as 2-3 business days. Or, if you want to buy from a traditional jeweler, KAY offers customers the option to buy in-stock pieces online and pick them up in-store within one day or less. When you're ready to shop for an engagement ring, work with your jeweler to set a timeline that fits their production schedule and your proposal plans.

Make a Virtual Appointment

If you're unsure where to start or what a brand's Black Friday engagement ring sale really includes, make a virtual appointment. After all, talking to an expert can help set you on the right track. Plenty of jewelry retailers offer personalized customer service experiences through instant message chats, call lines, or one-on-one appointments with diamond experts or gemologists. "KAY offers complimentary virtual consultations with jewelry experts that can guide you through the ring shopping process, answer your questions, and even co-browse styles online from the comfort of home," says Scott. "This is a great way to see what looks best on your hand and find out if you agree on styles and diamond shapes. The proposal can still be a surprise!"

Plus, as more shoppers turn to online shopping to find an engagement ring, brands have revamped the process to be more user-friendly and interactive than ever before. If navigating Black Friday and Cyber Monday wedding and engagement ring deals become overwhelming, a brand representative can help you navigate your purchase.
