diamond engagement ringWell, you don’t need to sell your house for a diamond ring as your someone special wouldn’t need materials to understand the love you have for her. This might be an ideal answer but in reality you need more clear and precise answer.

It is often said that a person should spend 3 times his monthly pay on an engagement ring. This will still be a rough estimation only. Say you’re jobless or earn nothing but pennies? Can you imagine a diamond ring? Does it mean you can never love or never gift her anything? Absolutely not!

It that was true, then only the millionaires can love and gift diamond rings to their partner. So there is absolutely not a defined answer for this question. How much you should actually spend on the ring is how much ever you could afford for it.

Even if you could afford a lot, and buy the most precious diamond in the world, if your partner didn’t like the diamond, still it’s considered worthless. Well at least in her eyes, it’s worthless. So first understand your partner better.

By the time you’re ready for the proposal, make sure you know enough about her. What she likes, dis-likes and sorts. Then try to match something within your budget to her liking and finally go for it!

But when it comes to diamond, did you know you can get beautiful diamonds at a great deal compared to expensive ones? It’s quite tricky but once you learn all the factors that define the beauty and price of the diamond, it is then easy as a snap.

If you’re an easy goer, first fix a budget, the max you’re willing to spend on the ring. Visit your favorite diamond retailers or trusted merchants. Tell them your budget and let them show you their collection. Filter our what doesn’t appeal much and find the best of the rest. Once you’ve got it, look closely and see if it speaks to your mind. Repeat the same on a couple of other stores and check out who gives the best deal. Go for it!
