YES! Its a waste of money and i dont want to pay for one!
NO! Its a Life-Long symbol of marriage and she should get the biggest ring I can afford
YES! Its a waste of money but I dont mind spending the money to keep her satisfied
NO! Its a Life-Long symbol of marriage and I got another stone instead of a diamond
YES! Its a waste but I want her happy so Im getting a Synthetic Diamond
I work in inner city neighborhoods, so having a big flashy anything would be stupid. And, I don't support the environmental and social damage caused by the diamond industry. I've already told the boyfriend (who is Irish) that I'd be perfectly happy with a claddagh:
For that matter, I'd be okay with having an antique gold ring, as well.
Asking a woman in detail what kind of engagement ring she wants is like telling someone to come home to their surprise birthday party.Originally Posted by molten dragon
Maybe it's just me, but I would kind of imagine that if you take the initial shock away from seeing a guy open a box and get on one knee, it's a much more mundane moment.
All the Kay and Jared commercials I've seen involve the elated, unaware smile on a woman's face when she realizes the man she loves makes a commitment with a diamond. I have yet to see a commercial where the woman is presented a ring and just smiles with the knowledge and satisfaction that the man custom-made her detailed order like a Whopper at Burger King.
A screaming comes across the sky.

If you are marrying each other for a greater purpose than just fame and money, then it shouldnt' matter..but if ur marrying someone who's a gold digger...
