How Much to Spend on My Wedding Ring?

The age old question that each young and jubilant couple must ask them selves when tying the big knot is “How much to spend on my partner’s wedding ring?”

It is fair to say that when in love, the emotions and hoopla that is going on around wedding time can sometimes get the best of you and some of you at times may not make the most rational decision in the world when deciding how to budget your money for a wedding ring. I’m here today to give a few pointers about what the best way is to go about purchasing that special ring for your loved one that they will cherish forever and you will not put you in debt forever as well.

The first thing you must come to terms with is what your partner is truly looking for in the ring. Some people do not care about materialistic things in the world and would be happy with the most simple ring ever seen. On the other side of the spectrum however, your partner may feel the need to have an extravagant ring which he or she can show off to their friends and family. You must find a median between these two mind-sets and come to the realization of what your partner is truly looking for in the ring.

Second you must come to terms with where you currently are financially in your life. You are making a huge commitment and your life is about to change for the better so you must plan accordingly for your future. Most people on average spend a little over their monthly salary on their partners ring. Of course these may vary on whether you are currently working or not and how the economy is going, but this is a good estimator about what you can afford to spend. It is very important not to spend more than what you can afford. You do not want to start your new life with your partner in financial pressure and debt because you wanted to go above and beyond what your partner expected.

This is a very exciting and wonderful time in your life and you should enjoy every moment of.  Take a deep breathe and don’t let small things ruin this great experience.
