Engagement Ring Buying Guide

The engagement ring buying guide will give you clear and useful information about buying the perfect engagement ring for the woman you love.

How much should I spend?

The engagement ring may be the single most important gift you will ever give. Budget is the key. The generally established rule is that a man should spend roughly two months salary on the engagement ring. Most men spend more than they plan to. The chart below may help you.

Annual Income $30,000 $40,000 $50,000 $60,000 $70,000 $80,000
Spending Estimate $5,000 $5,667 $8,333 $10,000 $11,667 $13,333

We recommend that you do not commit yourself to a set dollar amount before you familiarize yourself with all the options.

Choose the Right Stone

The gemstone is the centerpiece of the ring and the first thing people notice. It will also account for the overall cost of the ring. To make the right choice, you should familiarize yourself with the 4 C’s of a diamond: Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat.

There are also various diamond shapes that you will be able to choose from.

Whether you want the largest diamond, the highest quality diamond, or a balance or both, make sure you have a good understanding of what you are buying so you could make the right decision.

Choose the Right Setting

Although the stone can account for most of the cost of the ring, the ring design or setting is what defines its look and displays the stone to its best advantage.
