One of my favorite ways to save money on engagement rings is by making the purchase from an online jeweler. They don’t have overhead expenses like renting real estate and paying store employees, so they’re often able to charge a much lower price.
My favorite online jeweler is James Allen. Not only do they offer lower prices year round, but they also let you customize most jewelry pieces — including engagement rings. They also give you a 360 viewer, so you can see what your ring would look like from any angle before making your purchase.
On top of already lower prices, they run some pretty great Black Friday sales during the holiday season. Right now, you can sale with the Throwblack Friday sale through November 25. But here are the details about all the Black Friday sales, past and present.
Early Black Friday: 25% off sitewide in October
You don’t have to wait until November to get in on the deals!
James Allen runs an Early Black Friday sale from mid- to late-October that gives you 25% off purchases sitewide.
The first 2022 Early Black Friday Sale ran in mid-October through the 24th.
How long does it take to get a ring from James Allen? Typically, engagement rings ship within 7 to 21 days. But that timeline can vary depending on the production schedule of your ring.
Throwblack Black Friday Sale: 25% off in mid-November
The James Allen Black Friday Sale is running Nov. 16 — Nov. 25, 2022. And it’s going by a new cutesy name: Throwblack Friday.
If you order from this earlier sale, you could have your ring in time to propose over the December holidays!
Fine Print: The 25% off sale applies to almost everything. But there are a few exclusions. In years past, you could not claim the discount on loose gemstones or diamonds, designer collections, or pre-set, earth-created diamond studs and pennants. This caveat applies to James Allen Early Black Friday sales and regular Black Friday sales.
James Allen Cyber Monday Sale
The James Allen Cyber Monday deal is yet again 25% off sitewide! This year it’s running from Nov. 26, 2022 through Nov. 28, 2022. So it ends on Cyber Monday itself.
Happy savings, and I hope they say ‘yes!’
PRO TIP: Sales run in Eastern time. That means if you’re in California, technically the Black Friday sale will start at 9:00p on Thanksgiving. By the same token, it will end three hours earlier: 9:00p on Black Friday.
