How Much are You Supposed to Spend on an Engagement Ring?

You found the perfect woman for you, and it's time to make it official. You are ring shopping at last! You're looking for a ring that is beautiful, will stand the test of time, to never go out of style, and continue to suit her tastes for the rest of time. Not to mention, you need to find one in your price range. That feels like an impossible task!

How Much are You Supposed to Spend on an Engagement Ring?

You are in a relationship with the love of your life, and the only thing left to do is tell her you want it to last forever. You want the world to know you're in true love, which is symbolized by a beautiful engagement ring. As a general rule, you should spend at least two months' salary on the engagement ring. For example, if you are making $60,000 per year, you should spend $10,000 on the engagement ring. That seems like a lot! After all, you have plenty of other bills to pay. It'll take forever to save up that much!

Is There a Way to Spend Less?

This rule is based on the fact that many people buy a diamond engagement ring, set in either gold or platinum. Have you ever noticed that most engagement rings look, well, the same? Your love is certainly not like anyone else's, so why would your engagement ring look like everyone else's? We don't think it should be! We encourage you to forgo getting a ring that looks like everyone else's.

A statement ring is a bold, beautiful ring that often has a center stone or other focal point. It's not a simple band. It's not a diamond solitaire, or diamonds at all. It's something totally different all together. For a beautiful statement ring, try a dynamic colored stone, a unique shape, a large sized centerpiece, or a setting you don't often see. 

Not only is buying a statement ring for your engagement ring a fantastic way to show the world that your love is like no one else's, but you'll also save a lot of money with this option. Opting for a statement ring ensures the uniqueness of the engagement ring. These creative rings are beautiful, just like your life together:

"Dare to Wear" Crystal Statement Ring

This eye-catching statement size features an oversize oval cushion cut crystal set in bronze, surrounded by decorative swirls of crystal pavé, and accented by larger brilliant cut crystals. This piece sparkles bright enough to make anyone forget all about diamonds! It's available in four colors, but we think the bold Red is the best choice for an engagement ring that truly wows.

"Fabulous Feng Shui" Crystal Crystal Oversized Ring

This stunning Asian-inspired ring showcases an oversize oblong diamond crystal, set on a classic Heidi Daus bronze band covered with hematite crystal pavé. Again, you have a choice in stone color. While the Crystal Clear is the obvious choice for an engagement ring, we love the idea of a Topaz or Crystal Golden Shadow engagement ring too. 

"Long Overdue" Crystal Ring

Is your engagement long overdue? Make up for that long wait with a ring that makes her gasp! This ring showcases an oversize oblong crystal, set on a stunning bronze band. It is available in four stunning colorways. Which will you choose for your engagement ring, the Clear or something a little more unique?
