It is often perceived that engagement rings are synonymous with two things: overly enthusiastic sales girls and overly expensive price tags. Everywhere we go we are bombarded with messages about finding that ‘perfect ring’ and yet how do you know how much is the right amount to spend on the perfect ring?
The engagement ring is just the first of many wedding related expenses so it’s important you buy an a ring you can reasonably afford. That having been said, an engagement ring is meant to last a lifetime as the eternal symbol of your love and commitment, so it should be of the highest quality.
When it comes to buying an engagement ring for your fiancée, how do you achieve that perfect balance?
The amount you spend on an engagement ring should be based on what you can afford, not on traditional expectations. The sentiment and significance of the ring is more important than its cost. If your fiancée has small hands and a slight figure, a large expensive diamond may look disproportionate on them. Similarly, if your partner prefers wearing gold, there is no point in buying a platinum ring just because it costs more.
Generally throughout the western society, it is considered normal to wear an engagement and wedding ring on the fourth finger on the left hand.
The tradition of wearing an engagement ring on the fourth finger on the left hand can be traced back to the Ancient Romans. They believed this finger had a vein that ran directly to the heart, the Vena Amoris, meaning ‘vein of love’. With the heart at the centre of your emotions, this was thought to be the best finger to wear your engagement ring on.
