 catkins :  MrsMY :  I know this is an old thread, but to reply, I think, in your judgement of couples with 2+ carat rings, you are also presuming (at least approximately) to know how much the ring cost.

Engaged at 23 with a cluster diamond ring tcw 1.50 center stone was 0.50

Upgraded at 28 to a 1.30 carat diamond, with a 0.25 halo setting 

It is all depending on income, and if you are still in school, have kids, have debts, like big diamonds, like small diamonds, like other gemstones… there is no necessary average with anything.

I’m 21 and my fiance is 22 and my ring has a 1 ct center stone as well as the little diamonds along the sides! We decided that investing in a beautiful ring was important to us since I will wear it for the rest of my life. We both have had full-time jobs for several years and have worked very very hard to be able to afford it. We tend to be somewhat frugal people and I think that contributed to our ability to afford such a nice ring! We paid in the $4,000s for it and it was appraised between $7,000 – $8,000. (It was a custom.)
