I'm not in the market to buy a engagement ring because I'm currently not dating anyone I'm just asking for point of view here

It is a well known fact that an engagement ring is supposed to cost the guy 2 months salary
I say that is stupid because that could be anywhere up to $10 000 and that is WAY too much. $1 to 2 thousand is more than acceptable, and you can get beautiful rings for that price.
For me, the rock doesn't have to be that big, but (im sorry) it has to be real. I am aware that its the significance that counts, but I would never buy myself a diamond and would like to think if my boyfriend were to get me one I want it to be a real one (its a once in a lifetime thing)
As for wedding rings, gold bands all look pretty similar and the price is dependant upon the number of carrats of gold. 18 carrats is really good and they can be anywhere between $100-$300. Although 26 carrats can be around $500 or more. Both look identical and are the most frequently used. So $500 would suffice for a wedding band
