Picking out an engagement ring is a big task. This ring is something you have to wear for the rest of your life, so it has to be perfect! But where do you begin with such a large task? Here are our top 3 tips at Tobin Jewelers of what you need to know before picking out your engagement ring.
The average engagement ring can range anywhere from $1000 to $10,000. So how much should you spend? The typical rule of thumb is to spend two months of your income on an engagement ring. For example, if you make $3000 a month, you should spend around $6000 on a ring. However, this is your budget! You should sit down with your fiancé-to-be and talk about how much is a reasonable amount for a ring.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of different styles of engagement rings. Everything from the type of metal to color/shape of the diamond to carat size. Having an idea of what you want will help the process of choosing an engagement ring go much quicker and smoother. Find some inspiration photos on Pinterest or Instagram and bring them in so we can help you find the perfect ring.
