Let's tackle a classic myth together - the whole "two months' salary" deal for engagement rings. Spoiler alert: it's just a myth, and you don't need to break the bank!

The truth is, there's no magical number for ring spending. It's your love story, your budget, your rules! The real magic of an engagement ring isn't in the price tag; it's in the commitment it represents. Forget about keeping up with anyone's expectations - focus on finding a ring that fits your style and wallet while radiating all the love and connection you share. After all, it's the love that shines, not the digits on the price tag!
