Top Ten Affordable Moissanite Engagement Rings
Although engagement rings are seen as an expense that shouldn’t be spared, there is a huge variety of options available for those who are more budget conscious. We value the highest quality materials, and the expert British Craftsmanship of our Goldsmiths, but the price of moissanite engagement rings and our lab diamond engagement rings means that dreaming big can be a reality. Read on for some of our top picks for affordable styles that don’t compromise on quality.

Starting off with our most popular ring, it isn’t difficult to know why the Grace solitaire is so well-renowned. The four prong setting allows for the central moissanite gemstone to get as much light as possible, intensifying its refractive properties and making sure it has the maximum amount of sparkle. The Grace also features a knife-edge band, meaning that as the metal leads up towards the centre stone it gradually sharpens to a rounded point, giving the appearance of a larger carat size. This ring actually featured in a recent Telegraph article, on the best places to buy an engagement ring online which you can check out!

Another of our competitively priced engagement rings is the Lillie ring. Also with a knife edge band, this ring has a six prong tiffany-style setting that fastens the gem securely, and places all its focus on the centre stone. The band itself only measures across 1.6mm, making for a petite look. Also a wed-fit style, our Lillie will sit perfectly next to a wedding ring. All of our rings come with a 30 day complimentary free resizing option, making sure that your choice is the perfect fit!

Our third choice would be the Lottie ring. This engagement ring features a brilliant round cut centre stone, and a tapered mount that gently decreases in diameter as it meets up with the central gemstone. The four prong tulip mount is a gorgeous and secure setting that adds just that extra bit of detailing, making for a stunning choice. We have free and insured global shipping with all of our orders, as well as having a 30 day returns policy* and 12 month warranty.

The Lulu ring is another fantastic option, and with a rounded band and four prong mount, the centre moissanite or lab grown diamond gets as much light as possible due to this minimal setting. The Lulu comes in the entire range of gemstone cuts and metal types, from a 18k rose gold radiant cut, to a platinum princess cut. We work with our global partners PayPal and Klarna, to make payment as easy as possible, starting from a 0% interest rate.

Trilogy rings are also an elegant choice for an engagement ring that doesn’t need to break the bank. The Leanora ring we offer is one such option that is truly affordable, featuring three brilliant round cut moissanites or lab grown diamonds, with a larger centrestone flanked by two equally sized smaller gemstones.

Another trilogy ring we offer is the Blossom ring, which is a very similar design to the leanora with a centre brilliant round cut; but is instead bordered by two smaller pear cut moissanites. With an intricately detailed basket, and a plain band this ring is not overly glitzy but has a graceful style that is sure to impress.
Photo Reference: Florence 7x5mm/ 1.01ct Moissanite Solitaire Ring
The Florence ring is a vintage-inspired design with its ultra elegant emerald cut centre stone, sat on top of a four prong tapered mount. Traditionally emerald cuts were reserved for emerald gemstones however the cool geometric lines and clear table looks just as sensational with a moissanite or lab grown diamond. This is actually the gemstone cut of choice for many celebrities such as Grace Kelly, Beyoncé and Amal Clooney.
Photo Reference: Florence 8x6mm/ 1.40ct Chatham Emerald Solitaire Ring
The Florence does however look gorgeous with a deep green, crystal clear emerald. Our coloured gemstones are all grown in the lab by Chatham Labs, coming with a Lifetime Warranty Card. Chatham have excellent quality stones that are of the same colour and clarity as only the very best mined gemstones.
Lily Arkwright are also the only UK stockists of Chatham, supplying their exceptional quality gemstones in stunning designs that are the mark of British craftsmanship. You can check out the Chatham store locator here.

Two of our rings that have a contemporary twist (quite literally) on the classic solitaire are the Annora and the Aster rings. Featuring a brilliant round cut centre and a princess cut respectively, these rings both have a plain band that delicately twists to a 90 degree angle as it meets the centre. One of our most popular styles, these rings are a beautiful option that also work well with a budget in mind.
Finally, the Juliet ring is a solitaire with huge amounts of sparkle, living up to its shakespearean namesake, this six prong solitaire is the definition of romance. The Juliet has a tapered mount and is available in sizes from 4mm to 8mm, set with Charles & Colvard or Lily Arkwright Moissanite.
This list of rings not only comes at a better cost for your wallet but comes at a better cost to the planet. As all of our jewellery use gemstones that are grown in the lab, and so there is a significant reduction on the impact our jewellery has on the environment. The ethical concerns surrounding diamond mining is another huge consideration when purchasing a traditional mined diamond engagement ring, and so we say lab grown is definitely the way to go!
