You've seen Kim Kardashian's seriously sparkling engagement ring, and it's no secret that a ring like her's costs a pretty penny.
But did you realize that Kim's rock cost a whopping $2 million?! Using the 'two month's salary' rule of thumb, Mint.com investigated how long it'd take men of different occupations (doctors, lawyers, cashiers, fire fighters, etc.) to save up for a ring like Kim's. And the findings will shock you!
Out of the many occupations considered by Mint, Doctor was the most lucrative occupation. Raking in a cool $225,390/year, it would take a doctor 8 years, 10 months to save up for Kim K's bling. Not too shabby... lots of couples are together for 8-10 years before taking the plunge. On the lowest end of the money-making totem pole were cashiers and lifeguards (pulling in about $20,000/year), and the news is grim for this group of guys.
For a cashier or lifeguard to earn and save enough to give Kim Kardashian the engagement ring of her dreams, it would take 100 years! Here's hoping for longer life expectancy!
