No loan here. He paid for it in full. It was much, much cheaper than most of the other ladies’ rings though, otherwise it might not have been possible to pay it upfront.

My Fiance didn’t take out a loan.  He actually paid cash (there was some sort of cash discount).

No.  I would have been very upset if he took out a loan to buy me a ring.

No loan here either, I would have felt extra-ordinarily guilty if he had taken out a loan to buy me my ring.

No loan here either. I don’t actually have my ring yet but I know my guy feels very strongly about never buying things on credit (except the basics of course: house, car, school). I know he’s been working his butt off to save for this ring, and we’ll both be so glad that when I have it, it’ll be ours free and clear 🙂

No, he didn’t take a loan out to buy the ring. I would have been pretty upset with him if he had. Besides, my ring was not very expensive, especially in relation to what I’ve heard other people have spent.

He put it on his credit card. I think had we been together longer, he would have saved cash. But we were a lot like the Mary Janes, in that we met and fell – and just KNEW.

Nope, did yours @DRibeiro13? 

My Fiance saved for a while and paid it all off in 2 payments (no interest).  I was very happy with the result, and would have felt pretty bad if he had to take out a loan.

Nope. I didn’t want him to have to incur any unneccessary debt.

Mine MIGHT be asking his parents for a loan to cover it (I’m not sure) but if he does he’ll have it paid off in a few months; we would rather both wait, but our LDR means we have kind of a slim time frame. 🙂

Nope. He saved up for two years to buy the perfect ring and be financially self-sufficient. A ring is a terrible reason to take out a loan.
