Hi bees, I’m kinda new to this but I’ll cut the chase. My fiancé proposed to me Decemeber 7th 2014 and I was so happy that I just had to show my mom.
When I showed it to her she laughed and said it was costume jewelry, and that it wasn’t an engagement ring because it wasn’t a diamond. (keep in mind I picked the ring out) so now I’m in need of a second opinion besides my fiancès.

Do you love it? If so, that’s all that matters. It’s an engagement ring simply because your Fiance used it as a symbol of commitment to marry you.

soontobemrsgriffin: It doesn’t have to be a diamond to be an engagement ring. A ring that comes with a proposal is an engagement ring! You can get engaged without a ring!
Ignore your mom. As long as you love the ring, that is all that matters. And congratulations! Very pretty ring.

I’ll admit when I saw it, I didn’t initially think “engagement ring.” Is the heart made of a gemstone? But it’s still cute, and it can be your e-ring if you want. Congratulations!

soontobemrsgriffin: many people think an engagement ring has to be a diamond. An engagement ring is whatever YOU and your Fiance want it to be. Yes, diamonds are still the most popular, but if you check out the ring boards you’ll see all kinds of non-diamond engagement rings there. Yours may be non-traditional but it’s gorgeous and if you love it that’s all that matters!

also – if i see a woman wearing a ring on her left ring finger, I assume it’s an engagement or wedding ring. Anything goes now 😀

A ring that is used for purposal is an engagment ring. If you love it that’s what matters! I think it’s smart and wonderful not to buy a dimond just because that’s what marketing tells you too.
What kind of mom laughts at their daughters ring? I’m sorry about that. My mom would never ever do that.

soontobemrsgriffin: If that’s the ring that symbolizes your engagement, then it’s an engagement ring. And if you picked it out, even better. I can’t say if your mom means well or if she’s being bitchy, but I can say don’t give her opinion another thoughts.

A ring that someone proposes with is an engagement ring. Whether it has a diamond, a piece of rock sugar or no stone at all.

Is it traditional? No. May some people not think it’s an engagement ring? Yes. It is beautiful? OMG I WANT ONE! This is obviously your style so flaunt that sh*t!

soontobemrsgriffin: Not my taste or style, but it’s also not my ring. Why do you need a second opinion?

bitsybee: I need a second opinion because I wanted to know if I was the only one who felt this is truly an engagement ring. and because of my mother,

These days I think any ring that has a prominent center gemstone looks pretty engagement ring-ish! So, I would immediately think engagement ring looking at your ring!
Furthermore, even if it *didn’t* make me immediately think ‘engagement ring’, it still IS an engagement ring – because he proposed to you with it, and because you love it.
Don’t let your mom get you down.

I think it’s awesome! If you love it, rock it! Ignore anyone else. An engagement ring is an engagement ring only because you and your Fiance agree that you want to get married. It doesn’t have to be a certain material or styled a certain way. 🙂
