For decades, we have heard of various rules regarding how much a future fiancée should spend on a diamond engagement ring. Some say you should spend a certain percentage of your salary, and others claim it should cost at least €1000-1500 irrespective of your income. The most common perception for decades is that the ring should cost three month’s salary. Focusing on heterosexual man/woman relationships in this case,  we’ve listed two factors that women find important when calculating how much to spend on an engagement ring for her.

  • What is your financial situation?
  • Depending on your beliefs and values


What is Your Financial Situation?

Many women have thought about their engagement and wedding day for a very long time. Although they want the perfect ring from you as a symbol of love and your relationship’s strength, it does not mean it has to cost thousands of dollars, euros or pounds.

Most women dream of a romantic proposal with a ring that symbolises you as a couple. But that does not mean that they do not consider your financial situation as a couple. It’s important to be realistic about how much you can afford to spend on an engagement ring.

The brides-to-be are the ones that wear the ring every day, and whether they own many pieces of jewellery or not, their diamond engagement ring will always be the most important piece of jewellery they own. This is you need to choose the engagement ring carefully and with love while staying within the budget you have for it.

Depending on Your Tastes and Values

Another factor that seems increasingly more important to women today is the values and beliefs the couple lives by. For example, it makes no sense for a woman who does not particularly love jewellery or wears it daily, to buy a flashy diamond engagement ring that will only make her uncomfortable.

Let’s take this reasoning one step further. For instance, if you are very environmentally friendly looking for ethically mined diamonds and metals you need to keep this in mind when buying her an engagement ring. You must make sure your partner knows the companies that provide this ethical guarantee and know where the goods come from.
The values you cherish as a couple seem to play a more important role today than they did a couple of decades ago. People tended to follow the general rules and ideas that society portrayed then. These days, how much you choose to spend on an engagement ring for your beloved is completely up to you.
