Budget matters. Today’s Bridal customer is financially savvy. Staying on budget matters to them. It’s a practical issue, and it’s what they value.


Budget-conscious consumers are creating new sales opportunities. 80% of all US bridal sales are less than $8000. Reaching this growing market segment requires a product line specifically designed for low inventory carrying costs and low-risk profitability. The Naledi Collection delivers the designs and price points customers are asking for while upholding the gold standard for quality manufacturing and ethical sourcing. Engagement rings, complete with GIA centers, start at $2500 (retail keystone).
