How much does the engagement ring have to cost?

Most women expect an impressive ring at their proposal. A white gold ring with brilliant is an excellent choice. A brilliant has an enormous sparkle that’s even more emphasized in combination with white gold. In terms of budget, women expect the ring to cost 2000 euros or more.

Is this how men think about it? Research shows that men are usually prepared to spend more on a ring than their future bride expects. But a third of the men wants to go shopping together first, to discover each other’s style.

What diamond is preferred?

Because every woman expects a big sparkly stone, you can never go wrong with a white gold ring with brilliant from our extensive catalogue of engagement rings. The princess diamond cut is the second most popular shape. Which one do you like the most. The round or the square brilliant? Or is the shape less important?

Men as well as women think it’s important to find a unique engagement ring. With millennials, the white gold ring with brilliant is more and more replaced with an engagement ring with a coloured gemstone.

How long should you be engaged?

After you propose with a white gold ring with brilliant or with an engagement ring with coloured gemstone, it’s time to start planning your wedding. The first step is to pick a date. Most women prefer an engagement period between 12 and 18 months. For men, there are a lot of different opinions. A big part wants to marry within 6 months after the proposal. But another big part prefers an engagement period of 2 years. So, men want to marry immediately or wait very long.

As a man, you obviously have a different opinion than a woman. Already fulfil her dreams concerning the engagement ring and ask for advice from the experts of BAUNAT
