The Wedding Ring - Customs and Traditions: Undoubtedly, everyone at least one time has walked by a jewelry store's front window and paused to look at the beautiful arrangements of wedding ring styles on display. For many single people, just glancing at such a wedding ring display may make you dream of the day you will marry.
The wedding ring should represent the strength of the marriage amid the turmoil that it will endure. With that being said, diamond wedding rings should stand as affirmation to the promises that couples take during the wedding. Their rings will keep them under any circumstances until they are parted by death.
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.
Tip number three is the color. The color basically refers to the fact that the more yellowish the diamond is, the less value it is. The whiter it is, the more value it has. So one thing, one scam once again that you want to avoid, is the color scam. This is where they will take a low quality diamond and they will artificially color it pink, blue, black because they know people love colored diamonds. But, the problem with that is that they're going to sell it to you as though it was a naturally colored diamond, so you're going to pay too much for something that is a low quality diamond. And the second thing is that after a while the color of the diamond goes away because it's artificial.
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.
