i have no idea.  I think the appraisal is in the safe at our house but i’ve never looked and thats not even what he paid anyway. I can take a good guess since i do know the specs.

We have shared finances and talked about our budget before he bought the ring. I “helped” him pick out the setting, then he selected the diamond. I also have the appraisal and had to get it insured.

I do not think there is a reason to tell her if you are picking the ring out yourself.  But my hubby and I picked the ring together so I knew exactly how much it cost and was there when he ordered it.

I know what mine cost but I don’t see it as a bad thing at all, we knew what we were willing to spend and that’s what we spent (he bought the ring entirely himself though). I don’t see a difference between knowing what my ring cost and someone receiving a kindle fire for christmas (since it is easy to know what those cost).  It’s not about what the ring cost, it’s about what the ring means, so it doesn’t matter that I know how much it was.  If he bought it for me without my knowledge I wouldn’t ask though.

@MakingHerWait:  We both know exactly what our rings cost since we picked them out together.  I don’t know if there’s any reason why you’d need to tell her, though.  The price doesn’t really affect how I feel about it, and obviously I’d take good care of my engagement ring whether it cost $5 or $50,000.

@MakingHerWait:  I know how much my ring costs because my husband and I shopped for it together. I was with him when he bought it and when he picked it up, so I have also seen the appraisal.  I also took care of adding it to our insurance policy (need appraisal for this) so at some point I would have found out.

If you pick it out yourself and insure it before you give it to her, then there’s no reason to tell her the price. Had we gone this route, I never would have asked about price.

Nope, no clue. And that’s fine with me

@MakingHerWait:  I told my husband not to spend more than x. So I know that it was less than x and I have seen the appraisal. Rings are not important to me and I could really care less. I’d rather take a nice trip.

I know what mine cost, because it was one of the ones I showed DH that I liked, and I have the reciept for inspection purposes (it’s inspected every 6 months).

I know how much he paid and how much it was appraised for and insured for and how much it would cost to replace it.

Well I picked mine out so I know what it cost (the less DH has to shop, the better).

No one has ever asked me the price.
