The average spend on an engagement ring is pushing $6,000.

MarketWatch cited several recent surveys that gauged consumer sentiment regarding how much is an appropriate amount to spend on engagement rings, and the results suggest that men are spending much more than they think they should.

A study by wedding website The Knot found that men are now spending an average of $5,978 on rings for their brides to be. But according to a survey conducted by GoBankingRates.com, 55 percent of people believe that spending on engagement rings shouldn’t exceed $3,000. Along that same line, a survey by American Express found that women thought $2,731 was an appropriate amount to spend on average, with that number dipping to $1,991 for men.

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
