When Should I Buy My Wedding Ring?


Ideally, it is recommended to buy the wedding ring at least two to three months before the wedding. This will give you plenty of time to research different styles, compare prices, and get the perfect fit. The extra time also allows for any customization or engraving to be added.


If you are planning a last-minute wedding or need a quick replacement ring, Jae’s Jewelers offers expedited services. We regularly stock a wide variety of the most popular ring sizes and designs. Just keep in mind that rushing the process may limit your options.


Ultimately, the best time to buy your wedding ring is when you feel confident with your choice and have enough time to ensure it is perfect for your special day.

This rule has been popularized in Western culture and often used as a benchmark for determining how much a man should spend on an engagement ring. However, this is not a hard and fast rule and varies depending on personal preferences and financial situation. Some clients choose to spend more, and some prefer to spend less.

How much should a guy spend on a ring?

However, it ultimately depends on the individual's financial situation and personal preferences. It is important to remember that the value of the ring does not determine the value of the relationship.
