1. HOW MUCH TO SPEND
While this definitely isn’t the most important part, it often helps to have some idea of how much you’re thinking of spending. For most this is a new area and many guys are unsure about what things cost and what ‘the norm’ is.
As much as there’s lots of old tales around about how you should spend 3 months salary and the like, it actually really comes down to what best suits you and what you’re happy to spend.
Most guys want to get the right balance between recognising the importance of this ring and how long their partner will wear it for, while still being comfortable with what they’re spending.
We can create rings from the $3.5k mark upward, and the average amount would be somewhere in the 5-10k mark. But, each individual is different and this is all about you. For some the sweet spot is around the $4k mark and for others it’s closer to $15k – everyone will have their own range.
We’ll create your ring to suit your price point, so think about what you’re comfortable with and go from there.
2. HOW ORGANISED TO BE
This part is going to come down a little bit to your individual style and personality. But, we find that for most guys – being a little more organised can pay off big time.
While our rings take approx 2-3 weeks to create, most like to organise a little more in advance (sometimes even as early as 6 months prior).
There really isn’t a set rule, but instead of rushing and picking the ring up the week of the proposal, consider the potential of giving yourself some extra breathing room and getting organised.
This can give you time to relax and focus on how you’re going to pop the question, all while being confident you have the perfect ring to accompany your surprise.
