So, two things happened last week. Number one, a good friend of mine got married (congrats, Kate and Dec!). Number two, I styled a shoot for the Times’ Christmas magazine, and borrowed an amazing engagement ring from Boodles. So I had engagement rings on the brain already when this stunning yellow diamond ring winged its way into my inbox, from Weir and Sons.

This 18ct gold ring has a rare yellow cushion cut diamond surrounded by a set of smaller, brilliant cut diamonds. The scariest thing about it? It’s POA (price on application*). I love it – I’ve always been a fan of coloured engagement rings, and I love anything with a vintage feel. But scouting the web for engagement rings is a frightening task (and not just for my fella!) – they are all so expensive!

Is there a set price you’d expect your Mr to fork out? Is it still three months’ salary, or has that changed with the times?

* Don’t they always say, “if you have to ask the price, you can’t afford it”?
