Despite De Beers’ “A Diamond is Forever” 1947 clever marketing campaign advocating that the average cost of an engagement ring is worth up to three months’ salary, the average salary is much higher today than it was almost 30 years ago. (The U.S. national average man’s salary is $43,000.)

Make clear what your expectations are because the average cost of an engagement ring starts at $3,500. And surprisingly, that’s only worth about one months’ salary.
