We know you’re eyeing that engagement ring and have been feverishly checking your bank account to see when you can afford it. When are you just going to go for it? With financing options, you don’t need to pay the full amount right now.
Not sure what all of this means? We’re here to help! Brush up on the world of jewelry financing and how you can have that gorgeous piece today!
What is Financing?
“Financing” might sound like an intimidating term, but it simply means that you can buy now and pay later. Yep! You can bring your beautiful necklace or ring home today and only pay a portion of the total cost. The remaining balance is then split into more manageable, future payments.
Several financing options are available, but you should be careful when choosing a plan – they can include hidden terms and fees! Some jewelers offer 0% interest if you pay for your piece in full within six or 12 months. But even though you’re not paying that interest, it’s still collecting in the background. If you miss a payment at any point or can’t complete your payments within the given timeframe, you’ll have to pay interest from the day you made your purchase. Ouch!
You might also see low-interest plans as another common financing option. With this type of offer, you’d pay a reduced interest rate (typically around 8-10%) along with your monthly payment. You usually have a longer timeframe to pay for your piece in full, but your interest rate will skyrocket if you miss a payment or the deadline to complete all payments.
You should also be aware of hidden fees that come with some of these plans, such as late fees for skipping payments. And if your bank account has insufficient funds, you could be responsible for a returned payment fee. Uh oh!
