I just love what the other bees have said to you and I know they are being honest!  You have an absolutely magnificent ring. I think it’s unique that you got it at Walmart too – a story you can tell your grandkids ๐Ÿ™‚

Just to add, I am a very visual person. I scroll through posts looking for the pictures first and then if I like the ring, I go back and read what people have said. I did that with your picture. I thought to myself, ok what is the story on this beauty!

Don’t second guess your purchase. It really was the right one!

You picked the right ring if you love it and see it as a symbol of your FI’s love for you.

I actually am not a fan of clusters but I really like your ring! I think the sidestones really make it. The set works really well with you and what a steal at $320.

The Bee does give ladies with less than huge rings some envy some of the time. My ring isn’t especially big or flashy and I like it that way. I love my ring so much, and if you like yours that’s all that matters.

@alohapanda:  Thats too bad about FI’s engaged family member.  But you know sometimes people don’t think rationally. You did the right thing by staying in a price range you could afford while still picking something you like.

I knew I wanted a certain thing and Fiance and I found a way to get it in our price range.  It’s just ridiculous that she says she has to spend 2K on a wedding band.  It sounds like she is convinvced that she “has” to get a diamond band.

The rings are not even a requirement.  It is sort of crazy to say you have to spend x amount on something when you cannot afford it or that she has to get a certain thing no matter the price even if that means not being able to pay your bills or eat.  She could have done a lot of different things, like others mentioned got a cheaper ring for now and upgrade later, comprimise on the cost and let go of some of her ring requirements like she could actually just save herself the money by getting a plain band at Walmart as you mentioned, or a pawn shop or ebay etc.

Maybe her ring is flashier but you can feel good about your purchase because its yours, its paid off and you can still pay your bills.  It sounds like her priorities are a little wacky.

I felt bad about wanting my ring that I knew would cost alot, especially since even if we had the cash I wouldn’t feel comfortable spending it on that, but we found a way to get the cost down significantly and still get what I wanted and be able to afford bills etc.  There is a way to have nice things and live within your means.  You just have to shop around and think outside the box/creatively.

Congrats on your engagement! And hold your head high knowing you made a the best choice for your situation.  No one really pays much attention to someones ring anyway after they have been engaged for a while or married.  In the end it’s really not important what kind of ring you have, as long as you love it and enjoy it.

@alohapanda:  I like your ring FAR better than many of the rings ten/twenty time more expensive that ive seen on here. Cost doesn’t mean elegance! I think you should be proud of your ring and perhaps if in ten years you still want another make that your aniversary gift.

There is nothing wrong with your ring at all. But if you decide you’re tired of it later, why don’t you just replace the cluster with a solid princess stone?
