- Wedding: A very pretty church.
The e-ring is just a gift. It looks beautiful. Size shouldn’t matter when it comes to rings; you guys are getting married! You are very smart to savor the moment. It’s an exciting time!
My ring is ~$200 and I LOVE it. It’s white sapphire and 10k, I didn’t want a diamond. The middle stone is .5ct equivalent and with the side stones it takes up just enough of my finger. It’s freakin’ gorgeous, and moreso because I can look at it every day and smile knowing it wasn’t expensive.
What a nice setting, I like the swirliness of it.
I love dainty rings, they are so pretty.
Ps- 10kt gold is very durable and isn’t something that you will need to replace because it’s flimsy. Plus, when it is rhodium plated you won’t even be able to distinguish a difference from 10kt white/14kt white/18kt white. In regards to the diamond, the vast majority of engagement rings sold fall into the I1 range for clarity. These are rocks from the earth, and each one is special and one of a kind. I am one of those collectors that admires both the flawless and the included for the marvels of nature that they represent. The same goes for color. Let all the colors be represented and appreciated. H faces up quite white in my experience selling fine jewelry. All that being said, cherishing the ring for what it represents is what really warms your heart.
I am in the same position but reversed. There is a ring and pending proposal. However I am concerned my ring is too, well, blingy and big. He actually set a limit of” it has to cost at least this much.” I would have been just as happy with a fifty dollar ring from jcpenny. Regardless we did a custom with a one cart moissanite. I feel like I was looking at too many rings on the bee and got caught up.
the main thing is I care to much about what people think. It is too big. It is too small. … do I like it? I swear it has been to long since I’ve seen a picture I’m not even sure what it will look like anymore. And all that counts is what you like. And in my case a very loving and pushy SO likes.
And you have a lovely ring 🙂
ashliek: this is the set my Fiance got for me. It was less than $500 and I have to say, I ADORE it and wouldnt any other way. I wanted something simple, something that looked like my mom’s ring, and something that came from his heart; this ting was it. No has asked me about specs; theyve actually said quite nice things about it and i flaunt it. Center is .10 carat center and im happy with it 🙂
You are not being naive, you are being mature. I told my SO I only wanted a modest ring as well, and that I would be proud showing it to our grandchildren and telling them we were young and didn’t have much money, but we were in love. He was very moved. Also, I wouldn’t walk around holding $3000, and I don’t see how I could be comfortable wearing a ring that costs that much. That’s just me.
I think that is a gorgeous ring, and all that matter is that you love it – and of course that the man you love gave it to you!
My first ring cost around $300 – even my upgrade was only $700 ish! (rough exchange rates from £!). It’s not about the monetary value of the ring, there are many other ways of thinking about the value of things than just $$$ 🙂
