What's the price of your love? It could be pretty expensive.

That's according to a new study by bankrate.com -- which compares prices for a number of Valentine's Day staples to find out how much the average American spends on the traditional holiday every February.

The price tag came out to $512 on average. The most expensive purchases were diamond earrings, followed by fine dining for two, a bottle of champagne, a dozen roses and a box of chocolate. Proposals are also very popular on the romantic holiday.

Valentine's Day is this Sunday.
