Whether you're a hopeless romantic or not, the thought of getting married surely pops into your head from time to time. From wondering what your wedding dress will look like, to where the big day will take place, to what type of flowers you'll decorate the tables with—ah, the list is endless! But naturally, before the actual wedding planning, you'll need an engagement ring to get things rolling.
How much is an engagement ring?
Engagement rings can range from P30,000 to millions of pesos. Essentially, like all fine jewelry, the price tag depends on the materials—the metals, the stones, etc. Diamonds, for example, are considered for their four Cs: carat weight, cut, clarity, and color. All these characteristics determine the value.
Below, we put together a list that will make you want to get hitched, stat—feel free to tag your special someone!
