If you are looking for a place to share your travel photos and stories, then try BigRoom.

However much you can afford. The amount you spend on a ring does not reflect how much you love your significant other, and if you can't afford a really expensive ring, and your significant other takes offense to this, then you should find yourself a better significant other, because if you're on a fixed income, and your significant other wants some million dollar ring, then that person is very petty and immature.

The actual cost of an engagement ring depends on the materials, like the type of metal or the number and sizes of gemstones. Gold costs more than silver, but platinum is more expensive than gold. Combining different colors of gold bands in a Trinity Ring design, for instance, makes it costlier than a simple white gold band. A small diamond on a Tiffany setting looks so prominent, but an Eternity ring with a paved setting for tiny princess-cut diamonds may cost you more.

Diamonds already have an expensive price tag, but they become more costly because of size, cut, and rarity. The size of a diamond is measured in carats and the skill of the jeweler is seen from the precision of its cut, which lends to its brilliance and symmetry. With a rare stone, like the blood red diamond, the price of the ring goes up.

Believe it or not, diamond rings with silver or white gold bands are more affordable compared to platinum or titanium rings, more so when the gems were rarer than diamonds. These stones include the red emeralds (red beryl) and the fluorescent benitoite, which has a striking blue color and glows under UV light.

Hi dear. The actual cost of any ring depends on its material. In my suggestion, why don’t you go for stainless jewelery? My sister wears a beautiful stainless ring on her engagement. She got it from ZuoBisi Jewelery in very affordable price. Hope it will help you.

According to the most recent data from a 2013 report by Jewelers of America, couples spent an average of $4,000 on an engagement ring in 2012. You always have the option of presenting your potential fiance with this information and suggesting he or she spend the average amount.

Hi
Based on your selection criteria and also how much spend on that material. If your economy is very good, then you could get well designed and trendy ring. Some days ago, I found a site Dr Fine jewels where the products are less price and discount price also.

Hello everyone,

You have to spend money according to your requirement and budget. Recently my daughter got engaged and she wore a nice designed sterling silver ring. Really she likes that most and I bought that from Jewelry1000.com,which is a Jewelry Wholesaler that carries top quality boutique sterling silver jewelry. Thanks a lot.

Love is a priceless gift for the one that cares for you and ready to accompany you without any grievances of what she has left behind. When words are not enough to express your feeling then just let your engagement ring speaks. But while making a choice, cost affects us a lot.

My friend got a pair of Russian ring from https://www.elmajewellery.co.uk/russian-rings-c-243_423.html symbolizing that they are incomplete without each other. Wedding couple should spend time in selecting the best one at the most affordable price.
