You already have a lot going on in your life when getting engaged. Just choosing the ring can throw you into stress and panic. Add on top of that they myths that circulate about engagement rings, and it’s amazing anyone can figure it out. Let’s clear the air about some of the big myths and make it easier for you.
MYTH 1: You Must Spend 3 Months of Your Salary
Nobody is sure where this one came from, but this myth has no basis in reality. In fact, no responsible jeweler would ever suggest you drain your bank account for an engagement ring. Certainly you are hoping to find the best, but in truth, there is no “right” or “wrong” amount to spend. Make a sensible decision on what you can actually afford and work with a jeweler who can help you find something genuinely special. Keep in mind, you will be spending the rest of your life with this person. You can always upgrade the ring when you are both ready!
