According to theweddingchannel.com (and many other websites), the recommended cost of an engagement ring is equivalent to two months salary. Washington based artist Lee Gainer developed a series of prints called "Two Months Salary" where each print lists a profession (anesthesiologist, farmer, referee, etc.), and then shows images of the engagement rings that people in that profession could afford to purchase if they used up two months’ worth of their wages.

I think this is pretty fascinating and I would love to see another series where they photograph actual rings from these professions.
What do you guys think? How do your rings stack up compared to the others in the industry?
