Survey Reveals US Engagement-Ring Cost Expectations — and They’re Pretty Low

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.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
