A third say a sub-$1,000 ring is OK.

Americans have fairly modest expectations for how much an engagement ring should cost, a new study finds.

In fact, more than a third of respondents in the CreditDonkey.com survey said an engagement ring should cost under $1,000. And only 19 percent felt it should cost more than $5,000.

Survey results are representative of the U.S. internet population, according to CreditDonkey.

Expectations among millennials are a bit higher than the average. For example, fewer than 29 percent of women aged 25 to 34 said a ring should cost less than $1,000.

The survey also asked about lab-created diamonds. About 45 percent of respondents said it doesn’t matter to them whether a diamond is natural or lab-grown.

CreditDonkey conducted the online survey of 1,064 Americans aged 18 and over between April 2 and April 4. It was conducted using Google Surveys.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
