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.
Now, there's two things you've got to know about this. First, the carat for a diamond, or for gold, is not the same thing.

This is basically where they say this amazing ring is three carats, and you go oh, this is a huge diamond but it's actually a scam because the three carats is the weight of the whole ring including the setting and the band - not only the diamond.
You now have 5 steps to help you figure out how much to spend on an engagement ring. This is just a short guide and you should always take your soon to be wives feelings and opinions on this matter very seriously. After all she is the one that will be wearing it for the rest of her life.
