Congratulations! You have found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with.
You’ve a lifetime of enjoyment ahead of you, not to mention your wedding and potential honeymoon, but first things first. You need to find a ring. Now, while choosing your future fiancée's engagement ring is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make in your life, and one that you’ll certainly want to get right, it doesn’t have to be hard or daunting. On the contrary, it should be fun and exciting, a moment wrapped in love and anticipation.
For many people, buying an engagement ring may be their first serious jewellery purchase. With so many beautiful designs on the market and a slew of variables to consider such as the metal, the band, the setting, the stone, the cut, and the price, the process can seem a little overwhelming. However, with the introduction of their stunning new diamond engagement ring collections, York Jewellers – have made finding the perfect ring easier than ever before.
With five distinct collections available in a range of different metals, diamond sizes and gradings, York Jewellers can help you find a ring truly worthy of your beloved’s hand. And, with the ability to customise the stone in each ring, you can create a stunning ring, bound to fit your lover’s hand and your budget.
So, How much should you spend on an engagement ring?
Here at York Jewellers, we believe that picking the perfect engagement ring is an extremely personal decision and shouldn’t be reduced to mathematics or customs. This is an entirely case specific purchase, and the size of your budget does not reflect the depth of your love for your partner.
Rings in York’s engagement collections range from $2,000 to $15,000 and upwards, and each ring is an ode to true love. No matter the size of your budget, we can find a ring, and diamond to match it and your partner’s taste.
Rather than the archaic three-months-salary rule, we believe the price of your engagement ring should be influenced by two crucial factors: your financial situation, and your partner’s expectations.
If the two marry up - pardon the pun – then your task is made all the more easier. If they don’t, then you have two serious questions to ask yourself: How feasible is it to save for “that” ring? And, how important is a costly ring to your partner?
Aim to find the nicest ring you can afford, and one that sings to you of your beloved, but it is also important that you don’t overstretch, because most people would prefer that you start a life together with a modest ring and no debt, than with a giant diamond and crippling repayments. Furthermore, once you’ve settled on a ring, there are other considerable expenses to consider, too, like the wedding and the honeymoon.
