There are few objects you can purchase that will last a lifetime however; a diamond engagement ring can last forever. The hard earned money that you spend on an engagement ring is one of the greatest investments you'll ever make. It can bring many years of happiness while lasting a lifetime and gaining much value along the way. This should be taken in consideration when determining a comfortable budget; after all you'll never need to purchase more than one. A good starting point to use is the 2 months salary guideline although, you may want to tweak that number after determining the exact color, size, and quality that impresses you.
