How Much Should You Spend?
Izzy: "Most men aren’t really thinking about getting married. Most of the time the female is thinking about getting married and the man commits himself by giving her an engagement ring or a promise ring. A promise ring doesn’t even have to necessarily look like an engagement ring, but most of the time it does. Most people make it look like a wedding band. You know, one little tiny stone in the middle of the wedding band. Some people say engagement, some people say promise because they don’t want to commit to an engagement, so, it’s the same meaning.
The middle range price is about $5,000 and up. So you can start from $5,000 and you can go all the way up to $100,000-$200,000. It depends on how much you love her! (Laughs) ...Or how much you have to spend on her. Everybody has a budget. Some people have higher budgets and some people have lower budgets. So, for $5,000 you can buy a nice, SI-quality stone from about a G to H color."
