How Much To Spend On An Engagement Ring + Ring Inspo

how-much-to-spend-on-engagement-ring-cost

So, you have big plans of popping the question and the pandemic can’t stop you. Way to go! With everything going on, love is all we need (and probably the only thing keeping us sane). Now that you’ve found the one and you’re ready to put a ring on it, we are sure that engagement ring shopping is the only thing on your mind. So, how much should you spend on an engagement ring? 

You must have heard the general rule: spend your two month salary on an engagement ring, while others advise to spend minimally and save up for the wedding ring. I like to think that there’s no hard and fast rule and no one should tell you how much to spend, however, a good ring can be a worthy investment. If you want to go big, knock yourself out. If you want to get a plastic ring and wrap it around her fingers…oh well!

While the main goal is to seal and celebrate your love, you also want to pick a ring that makes her feel valued and proud enough to flaunt it. You also don’t want to break the bank trying to impress.

We’re definitely big on love and are pretty stoked at the idea of a beautiful engagement ring, wedding, and marriage.

Here are key factors to consider when choosing an engagement ring

  • Stone shape
  • Gemstones
  • Setting styles
  • Vintage versus new

Here are 6 engagement ring trends to help you choose right and curb confusion…

#1. The halo ring

The design makes the diamonds appear bigger than they are, I mean who wouldn’t want a gigantic rock or at least create an illusion of it? No one ever.

Since 2018, oval cut rings have been sitting pretty at the top of the engagement ring list and they don’t seem to be slowing down. It is probably because they are generally more affordable than round cuts or how they create an illusion of slimmer fingers.

From reds, to blues, pinks, greens, oranges, yellows and even dual colors, precious and semi precious stones have a wide variety of options. It’s no surprise brides are so drawn to them. If the reason you’re asking how much to spend on an engagement ring is because you’re on a budget, then you might want to look this way during ring shopping.

While some brides prefer an ice so big their fingers freeze, there are other brides on the simple side of life. If your partner fits into the latter category, these “less is more” engagement rings are the perfect choice.

Antique cut engagement rings are the best bet if your bride fancies the idea of the classic with an old-world beauty appeal. This ring doesn’t have to be old as there are several modern rings with a vintage twist.
