Whether you choose to design a custom piece together, surprise her with a ring that costs half your salary or go with an alternative to the traditional diamond engagement ring is up to you. Whatever you decide, an engagement ring is an important purchase, both for your relationship and your wallet. Here’s how to determine how much you should spend on an engagement ring.

Setting priorities can help you narrow down your choices, and a certified gemologist can help you navigate your options. With a budget as your guide, you won’t waste any time looking at rings that you can’t afford—no matter how beautiful they may be.
