If you’re waiting to get your tax refund before getting an engagement ring, you might want to read this advice from private jeweler and diamond expert Dan Moran of Concierge Diamonds first!

Should You Wait Till Tax Season to Get A Ring?

“A lot of people wait until they do their taxes to get an engagement ring and will hold off on buying an engagement ring until then in the hopes of getting a deal or saving some money in a slower economy. As I advise my clients who wait till Black Friday or other off-season sales to purchase an engagement ring, this is a terrible idea.

Read my interviews about why you should not buy a ring on Black Friday – the same concept applies.”

Why? What Drives the Price of a Diamond?

“Diamonds and gold have value assigned to them based on the markets. That means if you purchase a diamond or engagement ring at 50% off retail during something like an off-season sale, then the piece or the diamond was either marked up extravagantly to begin with, or it’s a garbage stone or ring and someone is desperately trying to get rid of it.
And if those two variables are true, how can you be sure you know what you’re really getting with a place that does business like that? You can’t and have no way of knowing if this person is snowing you or not just so you whip out your wallet and buy whatever they are selling.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that you’re getting a good deal just because there’s a fire sale and you’re rushing to get a good deal.”
