Diamond size affects the cost that men spend on engagement rings. Bigger diamonds are not always better. Many women prefer smaller and less extravagant engagement rings to complement their current jewellery collections and accommodate their lifestyles. As of 2010, expect to pay around £81 to £325 as a starting price for an engagement ring, advises Cost Helper.

Vintage and Antique

Vintage and antique engagement rings may cost a man nothing because they are family heirlooms. As of 2010, higher priced engagement rings average between £650 and £3,575, suggest Cost Helper. Sizing of vintage and antique rings often costs an additional fee.

Bottom Line

Men should consider their budget and lifestyle of the bride when determining how much to spend on an engagement ring. Expect to pay a few hundred dollars on the jewellery to several thousand, depending on the gem, setting and type of engagement ring.
