I am probably going to get bashed for posting this – and I’m not meaning to open up a can of worms on the whole diamond/non-diamond thing, but this posting just made me think a little….
As I read the title, I thought, “OMG! I am SO NOT BORED with my ering!” I am so proud of it, it is the most beautiful possession I have, and the most meaningful. I know that the person I love more than anything in the world not only put it on my finger intending to make me his wife, but he WORKED SO HARD TO AFFORD IT! It makes it even more meaningful to me, if that’s possible, because I am so proud of what I know he had to do to be able to give me something that he knew was exactly what I had my heart set on, and yet at the same time, more money than he had ever spent in one transaction (i.e, not financed) in his 30 years of life.
I don’t mind sharing that my ring is a GIA VS1 Jcolor 1.51 carat round stone, with excellent cut that has more fire than anything I’ve ever seen. It’s set in a tiny cushion halo Tacori setting. Altogether, my ring cost Fiance over $11K. Aside from being gorgeous and from this wonderful man that I want to spend my life with, it touches my heart to know his sacrifice to be able to give me this ring. He works offshore, and he had to work a lot of days to give me this ring. A LOT.
I have bought non-diamond stone rings over the years, and I’m not comparing them to moissanite, but I’m just saying that if the ring is less valuable money-wise, i.e. the financial sacrifice is less, then maybe that makes it easier to see yourself with another ring on your hand? Maybe that makes it easier to not only eye another ring, but to even swap it out?
Don’t hate on me. We all know there are “Diamond Bees,” and there are “Asha Bees” and there are “Moissy Bees,” it’s all your personal preference. My personal preference, obviously, is a diamond and I cherish it’s sentimental value, and I also definitely appreciate it’s financial value, because I am honored that he wanted to put such a ring on my finger.
We are not rich by any stretch, and I am definitely not boasting…If anything I guess that’s my point….The value of the ring is so high, that I would never think of being bored with it. FI worked his ass of for it, and maybe if he hadn’t, if the ring were less valuable, then it would be easier to part with.
This just made me think…Please don’t be snarky, I’d like to just see how others feel and hear different viewpoints.
This is my ring…Thank you, sweet Fiance.
