My engagement ring was from HSamuel too, and in the sale-he bought it the day before Valentine’s haha. I got a little card in the main box with all my diamond info the cut and clarity and where it’s from.. It retailed under £2000 but I know it was at least half price..

My ring is $3500 and i love it! It’s michael Hill Evermore collection.

Price doesn’t matter!!!!! I thought $3500 has too much LOL also the real price and the appraisal price are always different.

So long as it’s affordable to the couple and you love it then that’s all that matters. The important thing is the engagement! It doesn’t matter how many pounds you spend on the symbol.

My ring is from Costco of all places! They have great quality stuff though.

More that the price I cared about the quality of what I was getting. My diamond is great Cut & Clarity and the metal is Platinum. Total was around $2,000 I believe. My Husband won’t tell me.

My ring cost about $7000 Canadian dollars. It was/is my dream ring, but I never asked for it because it seemed crazy for him to spend that much. The price was not at all important to me. He proposed with a $250 lab created emerald ring that I cried when I saw because I loved it so much, and then pulled out a picture of the dream ring and said it was coming. I would have been thrilled to wear the emerald forever but I sure love my black diamond 🙂

kezbee:  My ring was £1350. We were saving for a deposit on a house and I wanted more money to go into that. He bought it from a great independent shop. I would actually have been annoyed if he spent more!

Some of my acquaintances practically demanded £3k + rings that had to be bought on a credit card and it’s still being paid off which seems crazy to me.

I don’t know the purchase price of my ring, but it was appraised at just over 60k(probably paid around 50% through a custom jeweler).  I told Fiance not to get me a ring, but he insisted.  Then I told him just to get me a fake ring, but again he insisted.  So then I showed him the types of rings I like, shape setting.  I would have been happy with anything, but he really wanted to go all out this one time for a ring I will wear forever.  I couldn’t be happier… it still wows me.

I know he paid about $10K for my e-ring and matching wedding band which is a huge amount compared to what he earns. He saved for months and that means a lot to me. And now we are planning on upgrading my center diamond specs sometime before our wedding in November and then I will be DONE. My set will be perfect!

Maybe a generalisation but I think people in the US spend more on e-rings than in the UK. Even my friends who are bringing in a dual income of £150k + wouldn’t spend more than around £6k.

My ex husband spent £2500 on my engagement ring. It was from Godsmiths, a solitaire diamond set in yellow gold. 

This time round over a decade later my taste has changed and I didn’t want another diamond. I had my heart set on having a ring made by my good friend who is a jeweler. She designed an awesome, super modern, concave cut amethyst in 18k yellow gold. She gave my Fiance a really good discount, so he ended up paying £1000 for it. I love it so much more than my previous ring, it feels more “me” and I adore it.

Fiance spent less on my ring than many of our friends did.  That being said, he got a great ring at a great price.  Is it perfect? Heck no!  But we’ve been engaged for 4 months and my ring is paid off.  I have friends who have been married over 2 years who still haven’t paid off their rings.  I won’t go into debt over rings OR the wedding.
