Your Guide Engagement Ring Financing (Or Having a Payment Plan for Your Engagement Ring)
Time stood still when you fell in love. Unfortunately, the clock won't stay on pause while you pay down your mortgage or student loan. For more and more of us, engagement coincides with other pretty significant life expenses. Thankfully, engagement ring financing is available, enabling you to select the ring of her dreams while meeting other obligations. When the time is right to get engaged, you just know it. Your bank account balance shouldn't have the final say. And that’s where a payment plan for an engagement ring comes in.
What is engagement ring financing?
Like a home, car, college education, or any of life's important investments, your engagement ring can be financed. You can put all or part of the ring's cost on credit, and pay it back over time.
How does engagement ring financing work?
So you’re interested in a payment plan for your engagement ring. But you’re not quite sure where to go or how to get started. Here’s everything you need to know about engagement ring financing in general, and how it works at With Clarity specifically. That way getting the ring is more celebration and less stress.
How to get started
First, set a budget for your engagement ring. Determining how much ring you can afford won't just help you balance the books — it'll help you decide how to prioritize the four C's of diamonds, making a huge spectrum of choices more manageable. Good news: The old "two-month salary" rule is hardly set in stone these days. Here's more information on how to set an engagement ring budget. Then determine how much of that price you'd like to finance.
What buying/paying looks like
With Clarity accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and PayPal. Along with interest-free financing, we're also pleased to offer the With Clarity Card through Synchrony Bank, subject to credit approval.
Different lenders have varying interest rates and special offers. At With Clarity, we're pleased to offer 0% interest on purchases over $199 made on the With Clarity Credit Card, if paid in full within 12 months*. The normal interest rate on the With Clarity Store Credit Card is 29.99%.
Does engagement ring financing affect your credit score?
Yes. And that can be a good thing! Because you'll be financing your engagement ring by opening a new credit account or adding to an existing credit balance, the amount you're financing will be reported to credit agencies, which determine your credit score.
As long as you make timely payments and keep your overall balance a relatively low percentage of your total available credit, engagement ring financing can positively affect your credit score. It can show lenders you're a responsible borrower and a good risk, building a positive credit history.
