Consider what the future holds with consider bridal...
Every diamond from the Consider Bridal engagement line is handpicked for you and comes with an authenticity report. We hope to educate our customers on diamond trade and how the entire system works so that they can make the most educated decision possible.
For earth mined diamonds we work with vendors that adhere to the Kimberley Process - a process established in 2003 to ensure that diamond purchases are conflict-free. We treasure earth mined diamonds because of the value and story of mined diamonds. Read more about diamond growth on our engagement ring guide here.
For lab grown diamonds we work with a lab that is carbon neutral and therefore is ethical and just as green as mining. Lab grown diamonds are gaining popularity and we are proud to supply lab grown diamonds for clients that are interested in them. In general lab grown diamonds are approximately 30% less expensive than earth mined. Since lab grown diamonds are newer to the market it is hard to say how the value with hold up overtime. We would not recommend purchasing a lab grown diamond if you are hoping to sell it as an investment down the line. But for the sentimental client that plans to keep their stone and pass it down - lab grown is a fantastic option.
There are many steps to building your engagement ring. From start to finish the process takes approximately 4-6 weeks. With custom rings the process can be closer to 8 weeks in total. If you are in need of a rush please contact us at email@example.com, and we will do what we can to accommodate your request.
We accept all major credit cards as well as cash in our flagship. We will also be launching Affirm as our financing partner starting in October 2019. To start production we either require payment in full or a 50% deposit on the ring and the second 50% deposit to be paid upon completion typically 4 weeks after. The 50% deposit option is available for those that sign a contract stating that the ring will be paid in full within 4 weeks. If you need financing for your ring we recommend securing this on the front end.
