Normally, the engagement ring comes before the wedding planning, but more and more couples are picking rings out together and although you can always run into the shop and find something you adore, but do you know if it’s worth the money you’re paying for it?
From the band colour, the size, the jewel type and all the information in between, the choices can be overwhelming but there are a few tips you can heed advice from to ease the pressure of choosing that all important rock!
-It will be costly: Everyone says it costs three months’ salary for a ring, but it is better to be realistic with what you can afford. Start with four to six weeks’ worth of saving first.
-Know your stuff: Educate yourself on the ‘Rules of the Rock’; it’s always good to know exactly what you’re paying for and how to get more for your money.
