    It was all expensive to us. We just went with the most manageable. Poor Fiance, when the saleswoman added up the price and turned the calculator around. He has no poker face at all.

    When I think expensive I think big almost perfect 2 or 3 or more carrot center stone. 10k or more.

    When I think *expensive ring* I think 12.5k +, so I voted 10k+.

    @luvmyDwight: lol, 10k doesnt even get a perfect 1.5 ct stone!  2ct perfect is at least 20k.

    Umm that is SUCH a loaded question.

    While I am sure my Engagement Ring would be considered very expensive to some and inexpensive to others it was well within our budget (2+ carat center, 3.5 carat total).

    Based on the cost of my Engagement Ring I voted $25K as it was more than what my Engagement Ring cost. 😛

    It’s all relative up to a point, but I think I’d probably classify a ring as “expensive” if you have to save up for it for more than a few months. $10k and over I’d term “ridiculously expensive”, and once you get past $100k my head starts swimming and I see images of Scrooge McDuck diving around in his money bin.

    When I think expensive I think over 15k.

    Darling Husband had some coworkers that told him that they bought their wives very expensive rings, but they were .5ct. I think expensive is relative to the person.

    @pinkshoes: True that!

    I asked Birks when upgrade time came how much would I need to spend for a 1Ct VVS1 G colour diamond she said 10-12K (diamond only, no ring)

    Totally depends where you’re from I more than anything, I think. I said anything over 15-25K is relatively “expensive”. I think I read somewhere that the average diamond engagement ring in the US costs around $3,000.

    Agree with PP.s its all relative. If you make 40K a year or 250K a year, your opinion will change a lot!!!

    I think it depends on the budget.. like there is a rule that a ring must be worth about 3 months salary – but that could mean anything from minimum wage, to superstar money.

    I personally think something over $2000 is expensive, simple because it would take me about a years worth of saving monies myself to afford it.

    @Treejewel19: I’m not a diamond person, so I could just never in a million years envision wearing something on my finger that cost that much.

    @linguo42: Honestly you can spend that much on another gem, it doesn’t have to be a diamond so the actual gem is irrelevant. Thankfully my Fiance and I are diamond people and could spend that much so it all worked out.
