I wasn’t sure what my fiance’s budget was for an engagement ring prior to shopping together, but we ended up under budget (not by much, but he paid $700 less than his proposed amount) … And I got my dream ring! I’m really glad we didn’t spend more, though … I already feel like it was a lot of money, so I would have felt incredibly guilty if he’d gone over his budget to get me the perfect ring.

We didn’t really start with a budget but it ended up being more than we should have spent. After we found the perfect setting and the ideal diamond size he went from there. He wouldn’t have been able to get the ring he did without help from his parents but I am really touched that they were willing to help. The boys got a little carried away looking at diamonds so it came out to be more than it should have been. It probably would have been more reasonable if the setting had been able to accomodate upgrading the diamond size down the road.
