I say if you love that ring and you are just fine with having a CZ, go for it! I am married over 6 years and we are just now getting an engagement ring. And, we have 2 kids, so I said I didn’t want to spend a ton on a ring, so we are doing a moissanite. There is nothing wrong with not having a diamond, at all.. Go for what you want!

P.S….. Can I please see a pic of the CZ ring you want?

If you love it then that’s all that matters. It really is no one’s business but your own and your FI’s.

@agdluvstx: It depends. If you’re not at the point where you can shell out the money for a diamond/gemstone engagement ring, how are you going to pay for a wedding? The point of an engagement is to plan for one, and it doesn’t make sense to get engaged just for the sake of getting engaged.

However, if (1) you’re getting outside help for your wedding, (2) you’re planning on eloping or having a small ceremony, or (3) you’ll be in a position to pay for a wedding relatively soon after you get engaged, I think you should absolutely do it!

That ring is gorgeous!

But if you are planning to switch it out to a diamond/asha/moissy in the future, I would suggest getting a metal stronger than silver, perhaps gold or platinum. Or even look into getting the Berricle ring platinum plated so it’ll last the test of time.

@agdluvstx:  That ring is BEAUTIFUL! Must be a new style, I haven’t seen it yet..and I have a serious addiction to looking at Berricle stuff.

I think that ring would make a great engagement rings, erings do NOT have to cost a fortune, they do NOT have to be diamond and you would be just as engaged as someone with an expensive ring.

@somethingaquamarine:  and what if they are getting engaged just for the sake of getting engaged? Some people want to have a longer engagement because they want to express their commitment to eachother without getting married immediately. I think there is no rule that tells people they have to set a wedding date once engaged.

@somethingaquamarine:  no, the point of an engagement is to get married. getting married costs whatever the license is at your state.

I think you should get it! DH and I are in college as well and I wish we had gone with a CZ or moissanite instead of a diamond. There are much more important things to be spending money on at this point in our lives!

I think it is a great idea to start out with a CZ if you want one.  When my husband and I got married, we just had plain white gold bands.  The diamond came later when we were financially more secure.  No regrets at all.  Laughing
