Three Months’ Salary for an Engagement Ring? For Most People, It’s More Like Two Weeks

Are you or someone you know shopping for the perfect Engagement Ring this year? We know many people want to commemorate 2020 as the year they say, “I Do!” to their true love, but how much is appropriate to spend on an engagement ring? Is the over-marketed “Three Months’ Salary,” that was used as a benchmark for the mass-marketed jewelry stores a realistic goal for many people? In our experience Engagement Rings are 100 percent personal. What the ring means and symbolizes to a couple is far more important than what it costs and this article from the New York Times backs up our claim. We find that many couples are searching for diamond alternatives and a meaningful, original design made with metals and gems that are mindfully sourced.
