    Traditionally, the man has to have the equivalent of two months of work to pay for the engagement ring. However, sometimes the ring is passed down from generation to skip a generation. For example, my husband used his grandmother's ring by getting a new band yet putting the stones in a different pattern. Sometimes non-traditional is best though.

    Since I am in the jewelry business, I view engagement rings differently than most people.  I would NOT spend a lot of money on a ring, especially a diamond because you will never get that money back if you should need to sell the ring later.  Instead, by a lab created diamond...they look the same as a real diamond, are relatively inexpensive and will save you a fortune.  Most people would not be able to tell the difference,and this type of ring will last just as long as a diamond.  I wrote a hub about diamonds you might want to take a look at...if you do, be sure to view the really explains the true value of diamonds.
