I just dont get how some women don’t care about their ring/stone/setting whatsoever and DONT take care of it either!!! Its an insult to your fiance/husband!
Im a fine jewlery fanatic, so I guess this answers the question of why I care so much.

@nolapeanut: I don’t think it’s that some women don’t care at all…but some women definitely care too much, especially when the ring and it’s value, appearance, etc become more important than having the man you love propose. I love my ring and FI did a great job picking it out, but I would have married him without it.

@nolapeanut: What do you mean by “even having one”? I don’t have one, but I said yes to his proposal and hold our vows sacred. An insult would be to say no just because he didn’t give me one. A ring is not always priority #1 in a relationship.

I guess I dont really care if I get an engagement ring, I would totally go with just matching thin gold bands for the both of us and go to the courthouse today! Im exited to spend the rest of my life with my SO and want something to show im married, but i dont need a big diamond at all. The only reason he is getting me an engagement ring is because hes very traditional and wants me to show it off to my girl friends and family. I would definatly take very good care of anything he gave me.

Well… before getting married/engaged I didn’t wear rings like EVER. Honestly, I would have been fine without a ring because that’s not what marraige/being engaged is all about. People have been married before without rings… and engagement rings are even more unnecessary… That being said I do like my e-ring/wedding band, although I know many people on here that would scoff at having such a small ring.

I was a little mislead by the title!
I thought this thread was started by another Bee who was sick and tired of other Bees complaining about their rings on Wedding Bee. Is my ring too small, is it too this and that, show me your 1ct, etc. While some Bees are just happy to even just be finally asked after waiting for so long. Ok sorry, just saying, thought this was one of those threads.
I love mine and I admire it several times a day 🙂

@nolapeanut: No the issue is the women who are too obsessed. I get showing other bees your ering, what I don’t get is posts asking to specifically see erings of such and such size. Posts asking if the ring is big enough….GMAFB. Posts going on about not getting the ring they wanted. Asking how many carats it is. Guess what IDK and I don’t care how many carats my ring is, it never crossed my mind to check. I love my ring, if someone commented on it being big I’d shrug and say “is it?” because I don’t know. If someone said it was small, I’d “um ok” because I don’t know. I don’t get this obsession, I use to think everyone loved their ring b/c their fi chose it out of love. I had no idea women went and looked in to carat size. Maybe I am weird for not caring.

@nolapeanut: I “didn’t care” about my setting/size/clarity and all that other jazz… it wasn’t an insult to my DH. In fact, it probably made his job 100x easier because I didn’t have tight specifications on what I wanted. I also take care of mine by cleaning it.. but really, if it gets damaged we either fix it or replace it. Just because YOU are fanatical doesn’t mean everyone else has to be.

@EncoreBridetoBe: THIS! I actually thought this thread wouldve been geared towards women who weren’t too keen on the specs of their ring, but I guess its the actual opposite. I’m one of those women that still isnt sure how much I care, to be honest. The only big specification for me, was that my ring be rose gold, and SO also loves rose gold, so I’m pretty positive that’s what I’ll be getting. However, diamond cut, whether its a diamond at all, etc….eh…I’ll just take whatever comes from his heart.
I love seeing all the varieties of E-rings on here, since I find so many different styles beautiful. I just think its sad that society has started to use a symbol of love and commitment to “measure each other up” so to speak. That attitude totally takes the fun and excitement out of the proposal, IMO.

OP: I don’t get why so many posts have been started for the sole purpose of passive aggressively attacking members of the hive have been started lately. So, I guess we’re both confused.

@nolapeanut: i rarely clean or take my ring off . I guess that counts as jot taking care of it. FI is not insulted. I love my ring. I didnt need one. I dont care that my promise ring was my engagement ring for awhile. I think it would be insulting to your fi to refuse a proposal w/o a ring.
