Frequently Asked Questions
How much do you spend on an engagement ring?
DeBeers started with a campaign about how much a man should spend on an engagement ring and how much he should spend compared to his salary. This idea stuck with us for many years, even though it’s outdated now.
A man is supposed to spend about two months of his salary on the engagement ring. Nowadays this isn’t really a thing anymore – according to Forbes, in 2015 men have spent an average of R60,000 on engagement rings.
There’s no specific answer, but it depends on a few factors. We’ll help you figure out what you can and can’t afford so that you don’t go over your budget. A better way of thinking about it would be to ask: “What could I afford?” – or even better being more specific and asking “How much do I want to spend on the engagement ring?”
Start with the basics. Firstly, decide on metal type or colour. Then choose a shape for the center stone. Lastly, you can go for a specific style.
How much is an engagement ring in South Africa?
It is good to know how much is an engagement ring in South Africa before you commit yourself and spend thousands on a designer engagement ring. So, what are the average prices of different kinds of engagement rings? Let us look at some examples:
A stunning 0.5 carat engagement ring costs an average of R35 000 in South Africa.
A modest 1 carat diamond engagement ring with a platinum band costs, on average, around R100,000.
A designer diamond solitaire ring with a platinum band and a 1 carat diamond costs an average of R130 000.
Is R4000 a good price for an engagement ring?
It depends. If you have the money, R4000 might be a good price for an engagement ring. However, if you don’t have that amount of money, R4000 is still a lot! While this might be a lot of money to you, remember that your fiancée will wear it every day for the rest of her life!
You will not find any gold rings in that price range. A good option might be to consider a alternative metal type like silver. Designer jewellers will not be able to help you with a specific design, but department chain stores like American Swiss will have a large variety on offer.
