Engagement Rings - Interest Free Finance

The exact terms of our interest free finance for engagement rings are shown at the end of this page. A simple illustration is as follows:

    You make 3 payments in total
  • 1 payment of 50% as a deposit
  • 1 payment of 25% a month later
  • and 1 final payment of 25% a month later

For example. Let's say you choose a ring on the 5th of November which costs NZD $6,000. The first payment would be the deposit of NZD $3,000, which you would pay when the order is placed (in this case on the 5th of November). The next payment would be NZD $1,500 on the 5th of December. Then, there is a final payment of NZD $1,500 on the 5th of January. That is 3 payments, which makes NZD $6,000 in total.
