    It is very true that peer pressure counts for a lot of disappointments with the ring you received… that is one thing that one must address and realize that it is YOUR ring and the person who gave it to you did so with love in their heart…

    When I was getting married, I only purchased a thin platinum band, could not afford much at all. If I could buy one now, I may settle for a lab created moissanite or a stimulant.

    I’m so complicated I don’t think he’d EVER get it right… lol I think my reaction would be something like:
    HIM: Will you marry me?
    ME: mmmmmm….ok…..how much did you pay for the ring? why isn’t it white gold? weren’t there bigger stones?

    I love the “keep it classic” tip! This is something you’re going to have for a long time so it does need to be something you’ll never get tired of 🙂

    I had a friend who flipped out when she found out her ring wasn’t a diamond (he couldn’t afford one) So she demanded he replace it. Maybe it’s better to pick them out together to avoid reactions like that… 😮

    A lot of couples these days pick out the ring together. I guess, at least that guarantees she will like it, lol.

    I don’t anticipate this being an issue for me any time in the foreseeable future, but if it was…I’ve never been a ring person. I winder if engagement bracelets are allowed, lol??

    My bff and I were talking about this the other day. I’m not gonna lie and say that I don’t like pretty rings, but it isn’t important at the end of the day. I don’t want my love to go broke over this. There are more important things to worry about. 😀

    What an important post!.. Too many men my son included went way out of their financial means to purchase an engagement ring for their intended….Generosity is great and to see the young ladies face light up with the ring is a pleasure but you have to pay the bill!
