I think the ring is amazing!! And I think that splitting the cost is just fine. I mean **really** once you’re married all your funds will be merged so it won’t really matter who paid for what. If splitting it now means you can afford it without financing it, all the better! My FI paid for my whole ring, but it drained his account. That means that when we put down the down payment on our house in a few weeks, I am paying the whole thing (which is actually about the same cost as the ring). It all evens out in the end. ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s such a gorgeous ring, and I think it’s a great idea to split the cost!

I think splitting the cost is becoming more and more common – and I think it’s a great idea! Especially nowadays when the economy is bad anyways why spend that much on a ring on your own? I know some girls want their SO to buy their ring and it’s important to them and I think that’s fine too, but if you and your SO are up for it then go ahead – there’s no rules to ring buying!

I don’t think it’s weird at all that you are splitting the cost.  My FH and I are doing the same for both our wedding bands, we combined the cost of both and are splitting bc my ring is much more than his and I felt bad.  HOWEVER lol I have paid for almost all of it to this point bc I make more money than him and with the holidays it put things on a hold but hopefully by next week we will be paying them off and picking them up ๐Ÿ™‚

I think it’s totally fine.  You’ll be married with joint finances soon anyway!

My FI technically paid for the ring himself, but we were living together at the time and bascially financially dependant on each other.  So while it technically came out of his account, it was our money.

You each chipping in is no different.

BTW- Love that setting!

yay! I just read your other post about this ring! I’m so glad that you are getting it, and good job incorporating the fam friend by getting the stone from him! ๐Ÿ™‚

No, i don’t think its weird at all! My Fi and I are paying on my ring together! We share finances so it was a given that I would help pay. I think its more common these days to do things like that.

Oh no! Oh pec1216 I’m sorry ๐Ÿ™ That bites that the store didn’t hold it. Is it a chain store where they may have the same setting in another branch?
