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.
Figuring out how much to spend on an engagement ring is not an easy task. Each woman is different and each woman wants something different. They will almost always be modest so the first rule of thumb is to go a little larger than what they think they are getting. If they think they are getting a half carat, then bump it up to a three quarter carat diamond. This will ensure she is happy.
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.
To achieve simplicity, a ring formed from another metal is made as a base for the diamonds. However, the metal itself would either be gold or platinum since they are the only ones that can hold onto diamond. One of the rare moments that gold is not the main feature in a ring is when a diamond is on top. In the case of wedding rings, the diamonds would then be lined around the metal band. The final form still exudes elegance without having to be as extravagant as it really is. You can also take time to look into different wedding ring catalogs. These are usually available online and in your local jewelry stores. Most of the jewelers, moreover, are willing to modify or even tone down some of the designs to accommodate your requests.
If you decide on making that modern wedding ring even more special, consider having your names engraved inside the band. Many couples are doing this because it personalizes it more than it already is when you wear it. It’s a more sentimental approach and adds your own touch to the already elegant wedding ring.
