"How much should I spend on an engagement ring?"

The outdated notion of spending three months' salary on a ring has created unnecessary anxiety for many. At Unique Diamonds, we've witnessed countless clients realising that true love doesn't come with a hefty price tag. Whether you spend $10,000 or $6,000, the key is designing a ring that resonates with your partner.

In 2023/2024, with the rise of lab-grown diamonds, you can craft an exquisite ring that ticks all the boxes for a fraction of the cost. In fact, 90% of our rings are now lab-grown, showcasing the evolving landscape of engagement ring choices.

"So how much does a ring cost?"

The ubiquitous question of ring costs is met with the nuanced response, "it depends." While this might seem elusive, it's a crucial starting point to understand your budget and preferences. Our goal during the initial consultation is not just to sell a ring but to design the best possible one within your budget. Whether it's a $4,000 ring or one with a 2ct round-cut natural diamond, we tailor our offerings to your financial parameters.
