Engagement Rings, How Much to Spend! Are you planning to buy your significant other an engagement ring? Are you wondering how much to spend on that engagement ring for her? Here is a 5 step way to figure out how much to spend on an engagement ring.
Forget the 2 months salary rule right now. That was just intelligent marketing on the part of DeBeers about 15 years ago. If you make $4,000 a month, then you are talking about spending $8,000 on a diamond engagement ring. Most people that make $4,000 a month cannot afford to spend two months of their salary on a ring. Maybe getting a ring that is worth $8,000 would be a good idea if you can get a great deal and spend around $3,000. Trust me this can be done and we will talk about that a bit in step 5.
With many cultures, the wedding ring is the final gift given from one spouse to the other. In almost every culture the wedding ring is preceded in the relationship by an engagement ring. In most Western Cultures, including Western Europe and the United States the husband and wife will engrave their names and the wedding date as a sign of their commitment to each other.
Tradition and Culture: It has been debated by many scholars when the practice of using rings as symbols of weddings started. The fact remains that almost every country and culture in the planet right now would require rings to bind the couple together. The ceremony may vary because of tradition, religion, or culture; but the presence of wedding rings is guaranteed.
The price of the ring is only part of what you need to look at. The real price tag is the value. She does not need to know exactly what you spent, but the value is going to be on the appraisal so she will know that. There is nothing wrong with getting a $3,000 ring for $1,000. That is called smart shopping.
