FAQ About Engagement Rings
This time on the Stewart Kuper Jewelers blog we’re answering all those frequently asked (or thought about) questions that can slip your mind in an appointment, or make you feel embarrassed to ask. We get it! It can be strange venturing into a new world and be expected to make a serious purchase. So, rest easy, you’re in good hands!
How Much Do Engagement Rings Cost?
The cost of engagement rings vary based on a lot of different things. Style, the quality and quantity of diamonds and other stones. There’s just too many variables to give a definitive price.
According to The Knot, one of the biggest wedding sites on the web, the average engagement ring in America is about $5,000. But that’s the average across a wide range of respondents in their survey.
Work with a reputable jeweler and you’ll be able to find a ring that meets your needs, style and is in your budget.
Which Hand Does the Engagement Ring Go On?
Traditionally the engagement and wedding rings go on the left hand, especially in the United States. But some wear their rings on their right hand ring finger. There’s no ring police so do what you feel, just know that people might not recognize the right handed ring as a wedding band!
How Much to Spend on an Engagement Ring?
The old tales were two months salary, then three months salary. If you’re looking at that and comparing it to the previous answer about average cost your head might be spinning. Again, those were older marketing ideals – your engagement ring doesn’t have to cost any specific amount. It’s your engagement ring.
How to Choose an Engagement Ring?
Now that’s a big question. In fact, we might have to come back to it! For now we’ll quickly say that when it comes to choosing an engagement ring you want to consider a few things.
That’s it! Those are the two things you have to know. Now, of course those break down into a few other things. Style is made up of size, shape, gemstones, and bands, for instance. The best way to be sure you get the right style? Shop together with your significant other! While everyone wants the proposal to be a big happy surprise, often the ring is shopped for together. When it comes time to choose an engagement ring, make sure you are choosing one that they are going to love.
