How much should you spend on an engagement ring?

OK, I'll chalk it down to cultural differences. You don't get that here in Australia, at least in my circles.

Yeah, I think its massively regional. Where I am, theres really not the option between synthetic and natural.

Also, the whole 3 months wages thing wouldnt hold up here. If Id spent over 20 grand on a ring, my fianc would have been pissed. I dont think shes the exception to the rule here.
