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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
