Am I the only girl in the world who doesn’t care about the e-ring? I honestly have never spent any time thinking about a ring, I just want the proposal. I have told SO this and we are on the same page as we are both quite politically-minded. I just feel like no one gets why I would want a beautiful proposal without a ring. I am probably all alone on this board though!

No you aren’t! I didn’t really care what my ring looked like.

No, I didn’t care about the ring (although after I found out my FI had a family stone that he planned to propose with, I did look for something I wouldn’t mind wearing for the next 50 years)
AND, I really wish my proposal had been more beautiful!
I think it is wonderful that you truly do not care about the ring!

I told my DH I didn’t care about a ring. Not to say I never looked in any jewellery shop windows or anything, but I didn’t want our engagement to be about money or jewellery. I didn’t want him to use the lack of a ring to put off a proposal. I just wanted to marry him. In the end he wanted to buy me one, so he did, and I adore it more than I can say, but the most important thing was that he wanted to marry me 🙂

nope not at all. I hate rings with a passion…actually all jewelery. In fact when I talk to people they know they can’t even say those words to me..i literally cringe when I hear them.
So no diamond for this girl…

You are not alone! I rarely wear jewelry. I think the ring would be more important to my guy becuase he’s traditional. So I’ve had fun looking at rings, etc. Because I know it will be important to HIM to get a beautiful ring.
But not to me. I’ve told him that he could tie string around my finger and I’d be happy. I know that’s not gonna happen.
I will resent it if the ring issue delays a proposal though. I’ve read a lot on this board about guys waiting longer becuase of ring-related stuff.

When we got engaged, it was over a discussion and DH didn’t have a ring, as it wasn’t planned! We went to buy one a few days later.
But, I am not big on jewelry, the ones I have, I never take off and lead a very active lifestyle so I don’t want some expensive piece I’m going to worry losing or breaking. Plus, I’d rather we spent our money on something else.
So, I do have an e-ring, and a separate wedding set; but both very simple… Let’s just put it that way: my e-ring and my wedding set, AND my husband’s wedding ring all came under 1000$…
