The Average Engagement Ring Costs Less Than You Might Expect

Tradition may suggest engagement rings should cost the equivalent of between one to three months of your salary, but prospective proposers will be pleasantly surprised to know that most people spend much less.

The average amount spent on an engagement ring in the UK is £573.00, according to a survey of 2,000 by insurance brand Allianz.

However, one in five will get down on one knee to present a sparkler costing between £750 to over £3,000.
