I’m doing a similar thing and I think it’s so smart!! I’ve pointed my SO in the dirrection of rings ranging from fifty (litterally fifty) dollars to three hundred, and told him that if he spends more than three hundred we’re in a fight. lol. Because, for me at least, getting married is about a marriage, and not jewelry, and dresses, and flowers. Don’t get me wrong, I totally want all of those things, I’m just not going to put myself in a position where I can’t pay my mortgage because I just HAD to have gardenias, a string quartet, and a 2 karat ring. I’ll be just fine with handmade paper flowers, my sister playing guitar, and a vintage sapphire from etsy if I still have a roof over my head and my SO by my side not arguing with me about money troubles. If you really love the thoughtful proposal he comes up with, keep the ring! 35 dollar setting and all! Maybe 5 years from now you guys will be incredibly well off and you’ll change your mind, get some 2 karat diamond and you can wear the ring with the less expensive setting on your right hand to remind you where you’ve been (my sister actually did that!!).
