My ring came from Kmart and it’s silver also.  It has some small diamonds then a larger one in the middle.  I think it cost $700.  What matters is that he picked it out himself and bought something that he could afford, not something he would have to make payments on.  And he proposed while I was laying on the couch, in my pjs, not feeling good!  I didn’t need a big expensive ring or a romantic proposal.

Great thread!! I’m with you on all counts. Mine is also very inexpensive and I love it to bits and pieces. It’s practically an extension of my body, I love it so much. 

Your ring is lovely, congrats! I love the setting, it reminds me of the ocean; it looks like the diamonds are in between the waves.

I don’t remember what my ring cost exactly, but I know it was under $350. Amethyst and white gold πŸ™‚

I picked my 2nd engagement (Yes my second to him, 4th ever) out on Overstock.com. Under $200!!   We wanted something different, and we are anything but traditional.  I chose black and white diamonds, and we love it!  I’ve always wanted an emerald cut ring, so I got that, my black diamonds and it looks like sequins if you ask me πŸ™‚ I LOVE IT!

My original e-ring cost $150 from kay. It’s 1/5 ctw and I wore it every day for 2 years until one of my prongs snapped πŸ™ They basically told us it would be cheaper to just upgrade and ended up getting an entire new bridal set for $400! my new set is 1 1/2 ctw πŸ™‚

I love this post.  It’s not all about the physicality of the ring  (carat weight, etc), it’s the symbolism that really matters.

p.s. Your ring is pretty!

Mine was about $550. I picked it out and decided to sacrifice clarity instead of size so that I could get my dream ring. You can’t see the flaws inside unless you are looking at it very carefully anyway, and I am the only one that really does that since it’s on my hand.

Also… we both paid for it. Our finances were going to be merged together anyways, so even if he bought it himself… it would still be like both of us bought it since it’s OUR money. ya know?

mine is a topaz with two little diamonds on either side.  I think it cost about $350.  I don’t have a pic of it yet though
