Hi Maz, how much you want to spend on your engagement ring is completely up to you, it depends on the size the colour, clarity and metal. I've bought my ring online the prices are really much cheaper and I was provided with a certificate from GIA. The website i bought it from was brillian.co.uk, they have a showroom so you can see the different diamonds and settings!

How much to spend on engagement ring

Hi maz,
However much you want to spend is totally up to you....it's a very personal decision and there is no "right" or "wrong" amount. The jewelry industry spread the notion that a man should spend 2 months salary on a ring. The average engagement ring in the U.S. sells for around $3,500. My ring cost around $5,000, but if I had to do it over again, I probably would have pushed my husband to buy a less expensive ring.......however........you may feel very differently and there's nothing wrong with that. The cost of the ring does in no way equate the amount of love you have for your partner. Go with your heart but let your finances also dictate what is an appropriate amount to spend.
