How Much Does Your Engagement Ring Cost?

Do You Know How Much He Spent on the Ring?

For the newly engaged girl, the ring can become quite a showpiece. While you're showing off the nuptial jewelry, I'm sure your man is equally pleased with his purchase, but do you know how much it set him back?

One of my newly engaged friends has become the focal point of most of our get-togethers lately, largely due to the sheer size of the rock on her finger. It's stunning, and you can hardly shield your eyes from the sparkle, but in the meantime, her fiance has been eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in an effort to get his budget back on track. Obviously, this isn't the case for everyone — maybe your ring is a family heirloom without a pricey store tag. But whether your ring cost a fortune or maybe was a special bargain buy, do you have any idea how much it cost him?

My Honey scoured all his connections to source the stone. He ended up with my dream Asscher cut.. just over a carat, but it's a D color and Internally Flawless. A beautiful stone set in platinum.... He paid about $7k for it...

I picked mine out ... I really wanted an amethyst ring.

Hubby and I discussed the budget since my best friend is in the jewelry business and we designed my ring based on the stone that fit the budget.

mine was his great grandmother's, but he had to size it up a bit, so he spent a little over $100 because it's platinum

Yup, I know because I was there when we picked it out. I have a friend who's been a jeweler for many many years and he hooked me up BIG TIME.

Yes, I do, but I never thought he would get me the ring, as it was really pricey. It's from a high-end designer, and it's a very rare ring. It was my dream ring, and I gave-up the idea of owning the ring in my lifetime. It was too pricey and rare. Imagine my shock when he proposed to me with that ring (with my favorite specifications). I almost fell off my seat. Somehow, my husband was able to afford the ring without accruing any debt. Perhaps he saved up some funds beforehand.

Yes. I was with him when he picked it out and I receive many complements. It's a vintage style but it's a new ring. On my right hand I wear his grandmother's wedding band which I also love.

No, I don't know the price of my ring and it doesn't matter either. I feel bad that you friend's new fiance went over his budget. He should have bought a ring that he could afford and then a few years down the road, they could buy a larger stone. That is a sign of financial troubles to come, if they commonly buy things they can't afford.

We got out engagement and wedding rings together, using a family stone. I'd say that for the setting and two bands, it was around $2k. The diamond is worth about $3k, but obviously we didn't have to pay for that. Now I wear a plain white gold thin band from Blue Nile and love it :)

My husband and I went through the entire design process together, so I know how much it costs but regardless it doesn't matter! I am also not a diamond girl, so I went with beautiful yellow sapphire for my stone! I love it and people are always stopping to ask what kind of stone since it is such an usual color!

yup, around $400. I know because he made me pick it out. I didn't want him to waste his money on a diamond, but I didn't want a piece of crap either, so we went with moissanite.

$0 -- when he told my parents he was planning to propose (and before the s$itstorm starts, he wasn't asking permission, my dad wasn't selling me, etc) --- they gave him my grandmother's engagement ring :)
