The Diamonds On Fifth Engagement Diamond Ring Buying Guide is designed to assist you in a step by step fashion through the buying process.

The engagement jewelry buying guide will give you clear and useful information about buying the perfect engagement ring for the women you love.
How much should I spend?
The engagement ring may be the single most important gift you will ever give. Budget is the key. The generally established rule is that a man should spend roughly two months salary on the engagement ring. Most men spend more than they plan to. The chart below may help you.
ANNUAL INCOME $30,000 $40,000 $50,000 $60,000 $70,000 $80,000
SPENDING ESTIMATES $5,000 $5,667 $8,333 $10,000 $11,667 $13,333

We at Diamonds on Fifth recommend that you do not commit yourself to a set dollar amount before you familiarize yourself with all the options.

Whether you want the largest diamond, the highest quality diamond, or a balance or both, we at Diamonds on Fifth will make sure you have a good understanding of what you are buying to help you make the right decision.
