I know the cost because we picked out my ring together.  I was pretty adamant about not spending a lot of money and I knew that he had some crazy 2-3 month’s salary rule in his head (thanks DeBeers marketing lol).  I’ve never had anyone besides my mother ask me the cost of my ring though.

Yes I  have a general idea…but not because he told me..but because every time im at the mall I stop in kay jewelers and grab one of their catalogs and my ring is always on the the neil lane page of it..but he swapped out the diamond that came in it for a Leo so I don’t know the exact price

Thrburko89:  LOL I think if a complete stranger asked me I’d be tempted to tell them something horrific, like the ring cost me my first born child (I’d be using the same line of reasoning that I’d never see this person again).

Thrburko89:  I know exactly what he paid, what it was actually priced as before our sweet deal of a price (were friends with jeweler) and he would spent more if I wouldn’t of had anything to do with it. Unfortunately we still went way way over what I wanted to spend and slightly over what I finally got him down to agree on. (He was able to win that as u see lol) how rude strangers ask u that though.

Yep because we bought it together. He had a really small budget, and I don’t feel comfortable wearing a really expensive ring anyway, so worked out well for us

Thrburko89:  people ask you how much your ring cost?! I’ve never shared any specs about my ring in real life, and I’m always surprised to hear that other bees are so bluntly asked, wow.

I do know what we spent, because we purchased it together.

Thrburko89:  I didn’t want to know how much mine cost, but I accidentally came across the receipt and papers :-/. I had no idea what my FI’s budget was during the whole searching process. I’m so flattered that she was so generous, but I’m also glad that it was less than a month’s salary. I’m pretty frugal, and my e-ring is by far the most expensive object I own…and it’ll probably remain that way for a LOOOOOONG time! Lol

We picked it out together so I know how much. The only people that have asked are friends who are about to get engaged so they’re trying to get an idea. Other than that I don’t really ever think about my e-ring or it’s cost.

I know the exact price because I (genuinely) accidentally saw the receipt when I had to take it in to get fixed – also word of warning do not accidentally slam your ring in a cupboard hinge… I felt like the worse fiancee ever managing to break it within a month of getting it!

Thrburko89:  I know because he had the receipt tucked into the appraisal so it popped out when I was checking its stats. I felt a bit bad and selfish when I saw the number but he’s a big boy and he wasn’t pressured to go crazy so I just make sure to keep it sparkling. 

I do feel a bit silly around some folks with very modest rings but to each their own.

I have no idea what my ring cost, but if I wanted to, I could figure it out.

We have it as a rider on our renter’s insurance, so if I bothered to dig into the policy details, I could figure it out what it was appraised at, at least. I just don’t really care and DH handles our insurance.
