How Much Should
Sure, sure “they say” you’re supposed to spend 3 months salary… but that’s A LOT!! You already have rent payments, car payments, school loans, and/or mortgage loans to pay. Is spending 25% of your annual salary actually realistic?
The real question is: How much CAN you spend?
Find our what you should actually be spending with our state of the art ring calculator.
ENTER YOUR ANNUAL SALARY:
WHAT YOU'RE "SUPPOSED" TO SPEND
Want to know who created the three month "rule"?! The diamond industry! Don't fall for it, it's insane to spend that much of your income.
WHAT YOU'RE LIKELY TO SPEND WITH FINANCING
The average engagement ring finances at 17%, that's insane! You'll end up spending even more than three months income if you finance your ring.
WHAT WE THINK YOU SHOULD SPEND
Giving up an entire month’s salary is too hard for most so we recommend a little below that amount.
Here's what's really important:
The majority of women don't care at all what you spend!
We surveyed thousands of women and over 50% said they don't care at all and another 35% said they just want their significant other to spend what they can afford. That means that the vast majority of women don't care about the three month "rule" so you can just forget it! Phewww! Breathe that sigh of relief! Now that an engagement ring really does fit your budget, start shopping for rings in your price range!
