Erin Fitzpatrick

Finding the right engagement ring can be a stressful task, especially when it comes to finding what you like within your budget. So naturally, our ears perked up when we heard there's a way to save money without sacrificing the look of your diamond. Fashionista tapped Blue Nile spokesperson Josh Holland, who mentioned a trick you should keep in mind.

"Holland brings up the phrase 'buy shy,' which means that diamond prices can jump proportionately at the half carat and whole Carat. 'If you buy just shy of that, you'll save hundreds of dollars and nobody will be able to tell. The human eye can only detect so much,'" he told Fashionista. So there you have it: Pay close attention to carats and you could end up with a discounted ring that's just as beautiful as more expensive versions.
