I’ve never been very good at hunting sales. Some people are so good at knowing the sales seasons! I’d love to have your help.
Fiance & I just want plain wedding bands. White gold or maybe palladium.
We’d probably be able to get them just about anywhere anytime. (Except the maybe palladium.) So I figure we should just wait for a sale and swoop in and buy them.
We have over a year until our wedding. When do jewelry stores have their big sales for the year?

The obvious sales are around holidays (Valentine’s, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Black Friday/Thanksgiving, Christmas), but while things do go on sale I think it’s fairly common to mark up the prices first. So you might not actually be saving as much as you’d think.

Like kaliella said, sometimes a sale isn’t a sale. The sale prices might end up being the usual price, but had been marked up for a period of time to make it look like a sale. I’d just visit the store you have in mind every-so-often to monitor the prices and check to see if they have a website, because it may be cheaper there. For Zales, the wedding band I want is $20.00 cheaper because of a no-reason sale, and my second band option is cheaper online than in the store, at least for now (it wasn’t in March). It just takes patience.

The shop we bought our rings from was holding an inventory sale (this was in March), so my e-ring was almost half price, as was my band. There is a local, independent jeweler who is currently having a diamond and engagement ring sale. It really just depends on the jeweler or jewelery store.
