Queen Haley. Ring. July 26th , 2017.
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.
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.
Palladium was discovered by William Hyde Wollaston in 1803 and has been used as a precious metal in jewellery since 1939. As recently as 2001, palladium was more expensive than platinum and rarely used in jewellery due to the issue of casting - the technology to efficiently cast palladium as jewellery did not exist then. Palladium is extremely difficult to cast well because it is a veritable oxygen sponge when molten; it therefore requires a very controlled melting environment. However, the casting problem has been solved and its use in jewellery has increased because of a large increase in the price of platinum and a drop in the price of palladium.
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.
Wedding Rings - Modern and Classic Styles: Two of the more popular options for wedding rings are the modern and classic styles. The modern styles today usually consist of round or square cut gemstones sometimes set in platinum or titanium metal. Platinum is a favourite metal to many women even though it is more expensive than gold. Some women consider it to look more elegant than gold.
