Top Engagement Rings In Singapore

YouTube video

If your significant other is special enough to be part of your life, please consider giving an engagement ring that’s special to her!

Engagement rings are no artisanal coffee where you can just splurge and not feel any impact. They cost way more and are supposed to last longer than you live.

Hence, if you’re going to spend good money on something eternal for your special lady, please do not skimp on doing your engagement ring homework!

2 Tips for choosing an engagement ring

Have an open discussion with your partner about the cost factor

Here’s an excellent mental bandwidth for you to start off with:

“The rule of buying an engagement ring is no more than 1 month’s income.” – Dave Ramsey, popular finance radio show host, author and entrepreneur.

Before your bank account witness a stark dip, openly communicate with your partner about the cost. According to a study by Draco Diamonds, most men are willing to splurge on an engagement ring that costs between $5,000 to $7900. Most women, on the other hand, are comfortable with a ring that costs between $2,000 to $4,900.

The annual salary of Singaporeans (including CPF contribution) averages to $5,596. Hence, buying an engagement ring that matches both side’s financial preference is feasible for most of us.

With that being said, an open discussion with her on cost can help factor in the remaining budget for:

  • Honeymoon
  • Wedding
  • Any other essential newlyweds need such as renovation

What is the significance of an engagement ring?

As diamonds are considered a girl’s best friend (or rather, if females gullibly believe Madonna’s songs and Marilyn Monroe’s films that they are), how precious is an engagement ring worth in contrast? Hence, regarding this belief that precious gems are priceless —how much should one shell out for an engagement ring? There are multiple misplaced beliefs and illusions about buying engagement rings that might lead you to spend excessively for what is essentially more of a symbol and token of wedding vows rather than a priceless, timeless, compulsory purchase.

Choose a ring that tells a story

If you are already spending so much, spend on something that can also build a legacy.

Engagement rings are not just hardened carbon and strips of metal sticking together. For most of us men (I’m a man myself, so I’m not being biased), we can’t really tell the minute difference between each ring.

Unless we have a background in art, design or film, we probably will not pay attention to such details.

However, if you are to meticulously discern and select:

  • A ring with a centre stone that was cut in a symbolic design.
  • A specific colour which embodies a particular value dear to both of you.
  • A unique and memorable phrase that only both of you understand engraved on the shank.

Your significant other would really appreciate from the bottom of her heart. It’s not about the cost of the ring, but more of the effort you took to make the ring exclusive, just for her.

Don’t view it as just an engagement ring. Think long term. Imagine what great stories you can tell you great-grandkids with this family heirloom!

Who knows, maybe the story behind this ring is so fascinating that it inspires someone to write a Korean soap based on it! Okay, you don’t like K-dramas. What about a story starring a future Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried. Hello Netflix!

Jokes aside, it boils down to basic psychology. If you want a good relationship with your lady, you have to make her feel exclusive on this momentous phase of your lives.

Engagement rings also serve as the very embryonic stage of a marriage. Remember, an unforgettable first impression will make a lasting impact!

Review 2 Great liaison and service by Ashley!!! Item delivered timely and made our day. My honey loves the ring👍👍” –Faizal Ridzwan
Review 3 Got it as a gift from my husband for our 5th year wedding anniversary. Customer service was good. Very communicative on Whatsapp. Just by looking at photos I sent of the fit of my old wedding ring, Ashley could suggest me a size. It turned out to be a perfect fit! The Moissanite is looking very sparkly. I will definitely return for more jewellery. I love the partnership with Hoolah too, for the costlier ones! 😎👍🏼” –Nurfa Noor

You can also customize the ring to your liking, with 3D renders sent to you once the design has been finalized, and tweaked as required to what you really want. Service was top notch, and by the time I collected the ring it really feels like it is your own. It was a Christmas offer back when I got the ring, so I managed to collect it in less than a month after confirming the order when other shops quoted a lead time of at least 2 months. Would consider coming back here again for wedding bands that complements the engagement ring.” – Edric.L

Review “When looking for the perfect engagement ring, I visited many jewellery shops, including those which are ‘branded’. Thankfully, I was given the recommendation to visit Ling jewellery – And I’m glad I did. The staff are all professional, polite and well versed in the field of jewellery, precious metals and stones. Unlike the majority of high street jewelers in Singapore, the staff at Ling Jewellery did not try to up-sell or push items on to me. Instead, sitting in their storefront full of beautiful pieces, I was made to feel comfortable and explain exactly what I wanted.

All the staff, Ling, Andrew and Tracy, have been fantastic. They helped me to design the engagement ring I wanted for my fiancee to be made to order – and it turned out perfect.Several months later, my fiancee and I returned to pick out wedding bands. Again, it was a fantastic experience and incredibly easy to find the perfect wedding bands we wanted and have them engraved. I could not recommend Ling Jewellery higher. Thank you very much Ling, Andrew and Tracy for a fantastic shopping experience and helping my fiancee and I to choose the perfect engagement ring and wedding bands.” – Alex.A

Engagement Ring Misconceptions, Misplaced Beliefs

Spending Three Months’ Worth of One’s Salary

It is widely believed that engagement rings require potential grooms to extravagantly splurge approximately three months of their salary, but this is a widely held misconception that does not cohere with our current economic climate. There are no hard and fast rules on how much you should spend on an engagement ring, it really is completely up to you, your budget constrictions.

Procuring a More Affordable Diamond via Ecommerce

It is potentially less prudent to shop for diamonds on the internet because these may be coarse, crude trinkets that are not genuine, that may be imitations rather than genuine and indiscernible by the layman as a fake. It is better to consult a trusted jeweller. 

How Much to Spend and How Much is too Lavish?

Though there is no determined price limit when procuring engagement rings, you might be concerned on overspending and wasting unnecessary savings. Try to fish out your fiancé’s preferences via hints dropped about your intended purchase and consulting your partner’s family.


How to Reduce Engagement Ring Spending

If you are working within financial constraints, you can still procure a fabulous, resplendent ring by being a shrewd shopper.


Exclude the Diamond

Diamonds are lavish features of engagement rings, so you can slash costs by using a diamond supplement in place of a diamond stud. You could procure a white sapphire, which bears a close resemblance and dazzle to a lavish diamond. Alternative supplementary gems are blue sapphires, rubies, emeralds. According to pedigree, these may be more affordable, though rare gems might cost more.

More rare stones that are getting trendy: Green tourmaline, peachy-pink morganite, and ice blue aquamarine. 


Understand Your Context

Remember everything varies with context. Your fiancé may understandably be thrilled with Meghan Markle’s three-stone engagement ring, but such pedigree costs an astronomical amount, potentially exceeding financial constraints. Rather, if you restrict the spending to the ring’s gem, consider a traditional solitaire design to accentuate the main gem.

Choosing a less premium hue, shade of pigmentation and sharpness may considerably reduce engagement ring costs (particularly with brilliant-cut diamonds) without compromising aesthetics. 


Go the Antique Route

Antique diamonds are wonderful choices for concealing pigmentation, and conventionally 2-3 colours whiter than their grade attests. 

How much should one splurge on an engagement ring?

When procuring an engagement ring, spend within a realistic budget that you can reasonably afford. The popular convention that claims you should spend two months’ salary on your ring was fabricated by the diamond company DeBeers to compel more people to splurge on diamonds.

It is not prudent—and potentially financially foolish—to spend in extremes for a wedding symbol, token, a luxury that is more symbolic than material.

Indeed, an engagement ring is a symbol of love and commitment. Exceeding your budget to splurge on a lavish diamond is tradition. However, we live in different times.


Why two months’ salary is antiquated

  • Two months’ salary has always been a splurge for an engagement ring. However, this old standard is not practical, realistic now—especially for couples who want to wed in their 20s or early 30s.
  • We do not live in the 1950s.
  • The millennial generation is graduating with more and more tertiary loan debt and facing reduced entry-level pay. They face costs of living that are highly inflated, even property is astronomically priced.
  • Most women are working (at least before having kids) and often out-perform men in careers.  Even with dual incomes, many have tight budgets for property and raising children.
  • The median age of marriage is rising in Singapore. Many marry late.  Hence it does not make sense to splurge when one has many urgent bills to finance.


How Much People Spend on an Engagement Ring

There are many finance journals, magazines around advising on the budget of your engagement ring. Here is the typical advice: you should spend 3 months of your income on an engagement ring. First, look at the statistics. A recent study reported that most males in Singapore are willing to spend around $5,000 to $7,900 on their engagement ring. Singaporean females, in contrast, merely, frugally expect their partner to spend between $2,000 to $4,900.

A simple one-carat solitaire ring will set you back by only about $1,799 to $5,000 in Singapore, with a survey of brands here. But of course, money should not be the only factor, the ring merely symbolizes your union.

Engagement Ring ($3,000 – $5,000)

Most people spend around $3,000 – $5,000 on their engagement ring.

The common budget can get you a ~0.3 – 0.4 carat diamond (with setting), depending on where you purchase it from, and the specifications.


Is it worth procuring a diamond ring from Tiffany and Co.?

If you shop at NTUC, you are part of the herd. If you shop at Tiffany, you are part of the exclusive rich (or so they claim and clamour). Their profit margins are exceedingly high for a retailer, 59%. They operate in a price-impervious segment of retail. Making prices more affordable would dilute the very intentional prestigious image, branding they have crafted.

Armani, Hermes, Gucci, Cartier, Fendi, Rolex, Louis Vuitton, Coach, Mercedes, Rolls Royce. These names are prestigious. They all have the same trait shared- a luxurious image, brand. Wear a Rolex, and people associate you with wealth. (And perhaps being vulgarly ostentatious, flashy). Wear a Casio and they are mundane. Exclusivity comes with hefty price tags.
