How much to spend on an engagement ring?
This is kind of a touchy subject and I think it's difficult to ask people in real life, face to face, how much they spent on their engagement ring and what percentage of that was their total income.
I've been with the same girl for 3 years now, she's the one, and we've stuck together with one cross country move and me starting and finishing graduate school.
I graduate on May 21st and will start my new employment at $140k a year this July.
I've wanted to propose to her for a while, but never had the money to do so.
So, am I supposed to wait until October or so to save up the 'standard' 1/4th your annual income to propose? Is spending over 30 grand on an engagement ring even something people do?
I don't really feel that comfortable spending that much money, but I have no idea where I fall on this curve of what 'most people spend'.
Anyway, PA, thoughts? Any of you willing to do some information gathering on what you spent and how much you make?
