Wow.. you are so sweet for buying that ring for her.Everything has been hijacked by commercialism. Me and my wife just spent almost a year and lots of money planning out a wedding that neither of us remember much of. Looking back (much of this I argued before hand but her family was fixated on a "traditional"wedding) we could go back and cut costs nearly in half. The fresh flowers were pretty but nowhere near necessary, we didn't need limos for a twenty minute ride, it was ridiculous to rent a church for one hour for 2000 dollars. That's right people. Two months of mortgage payments equals one hour in a church, lol. TV and wedding guides tell you that you must spend money beaucoup on a wedding and people listen. The same with engagement rings. Guys are now expected to save up months of paychecks on a ring that has a clear shiny jewel that isn't even that rare in it? For what purpose? I knew my wife was the one when we went shopping for engagement rings and the one she fell in love with cost 5000 and I told her I couldn't afford it and we continued shopping. She honestly didn't care what I spent on a ring and she could care less how much it cost, she just wanted something from me that looked good on her finger. Of course I got her the 5000 ring cause she loved it and I could afford it but it's great being married to someone that isn't obsessed with having expensive stuff for the sake of it being expensive.
