Just like anywhere else it depends on the intricacy of the design, workmanship, size of the diamond and karat of the gold. I don't personally know your would be fiance but I'm sure she would be happy if you will give her something in the range of Php80,000-100,000 that you could find in reliable jewelers in malls in Manila.

If you will have a stopover in the Middle East or Singapore or Hong Kong on your way here then buy there instead.

You are looking at 180k and up per carat, depending on how many carats the ring is, also clarity, color and cut of stone. The higher the carats, the more expensive per carat usually. For example, you can buy a 1 carat diamond for 180k. But for the same qualities, a 3 carat ring will go for 250k up per carat.

It depends also on what your girl wants or the setting she prefers. Some want it simple and some do not want a traditional diamond. Jewelry in the Phil tho, like Hong kong, are not taxed (unless that has changed). So it is cheaper to buy here than Europe.

Now if your girlfriend was me and you get me anything less than 3 carats, I will scream.

Kidding. ;)
