How Much Should an Engagement Ring Cost?

While planning to propose can be one of the most exciting times in your life, it can also be the cause of anxiety.

We get it, it’s a big deal – you’re planning to propose! But worrying about how you measure up shouldn’t be on your mind.


Often clients worry if they’re spending the 'right amount', looking for a benchmark to measure themselves against.

“How many carats should an engagement ring be?” “How much should I really be spending on an engagement ring?”

But like most aspects of life, comparing yourself to others usually doesn’t end with any insightful takeaways.

There are so many variables that work into each couple’s relationship and engagement ring that there’s no one way to nail down the ‘right’ budget.

If you’re still looking for some hard numbers, we’ll tell you this.

Our clients generally find that the purchase of an engagement ring needs to fit into the other priorities in their lives. This often includes travel, adventure, enjoying meals with friends and living their lives to the fullest. They’re not looking to put all that on hold to buy a piece of jewelry.

Our goal is to make engagement rings that support and amplify this lifestyle, not take away from it.  With a budget between $2,000 and $4,000 CAD our clients can design the ring of their dreams that will join them on adventures for a lifetime.
