Been dating my girlfriend for awhile now and am going to ask her the question soon, so was looking to buy a ring in the next couple of months. So, any of you guys married or just got engaged? I am looking for advice on the ring, how much you spent, any stores better than the other? I have some people at work that have spent $8k on them but I could put a real nice down payment on a house with that. I was thinking $2k range but not sure. Discuss.
