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.
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.
Promise rings are not necessarily meant just for women. The current trend is for the woman to also give the gift of a promise ring to a man. Men have historically been left out of the ring-receiving game until their wedding day. Now that it is much more common for men to accessorize with rings, whether it is costume jewelry, right hand rings or promise rings, the act of giving a promise ring to your male mate can make a unique and powerful impact on a man. Men appreciate being noticed and appreciated as much as women and there is no reason to leave him out of this special occasion. If he gives you a promise ring, he is no doubt proud of you and wants to spend his life with you. Return the favor and surprise him by doing the same.
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.
