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.
It's the shape of the diamond when you look at it from above. Now, there is a type of shape that we call round. Now the round shaped diamonds are the most popular because these are the ones with the most sparkle. There's the heart shaped diamond - this is the most popular with lovers. Then there's the pear shaped diamond; it either looks like a pear or like a tear. This is mostly popular for earrings, less for diamond rings. The oval diamonds; these are good for people who have short fingers because when you have an oval shaped diamond ring it makes your fingers look longer.
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. So for example, for gold karat is written with a \"K\" and the value of the karat isn't the same as for the diamond. And the second this is make sure you don't fall for the carat total weight scam. 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.
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.
