There are lots of theories about how much people should spend on engagement rings for their partners, but the truth is, there are so many fantastic products out there these days at varying prices that it really doesn’t matter how much cash is handed over.

If you’re on the lookout for jewellery like this to hand over to your other half, don’t be intimidated by supposed rules. The important thing is to make sure you select an item that you’re girlfriend will fall for.

Kanye West prepares to make grand gesture

One man who’s got plenty of cash to splash is musician and fashion designer Kanye West. The 35-year-old is reportedly planning to spend big bucks on his beau Kim Kardashian before he pops the question.

Speaking to Closer magazine, a friend said that West is preparing to hand over a gleaming ring when he gets down on bended knee. The insider remarked: “Kanye’s saying the ring will ‘blow her away’, and it will ‘out-bling all the other bling’. He says it will make her old engagement rings look like kids’ toys.”

The pal added: “Kanye can afford to really splash out and no one would be surprised if he spent over £1 million on the perfect ring.”

Can’t wait

It seems as though the pair can’t wait to get engaged despite the fact Kim is still in the process of getting divorced from ex beau basketball player Kris Humphries.

The source stated: “They were going to delay the engagement until Kim’s divorce was finalised, but neither of them want to wait anymore.”

The headlines are packed with stories of stars shelling out lots of cash for custom engagement rings, but the fact is, you don’t have to part with tonnes of money in order to get your hands on an item that will melt your partner’s heart.
