    I have a custom ring that was partially made with heirloom diamonds. I guess it would be interesting to know how much it cost (or how much it’s actually worth, since we didn’t have to pay for most of the diamonds), but at the same time it doesn’t really bother me not knowing. I once had someone say that I had a $10,000 ring on my finger, but I have no idea how much it’s actually worth. Maybe I should’ve retorted that it’s worth much more than that lol.

    Don’t know, don’t care.  He proposed with it, I like it, what more do I need to know?

    @Kit_Kath:  Eventually you are going to find out…the ring has to be appraised and insured and the only way for that to happen is for someone to get the appraisal certificate from the jeweler and submit it to the insurance company to be scheduled….and just who is going to do all that?  The person who has the ring on their finger I would imagine.

    i know what the setting cost before we traded in some gold. but i have no idea what the final cost was. and i don’t care to know, either. i do know what it appraised for, and even that isn’t accurate cause it’s an heirloom stone which is priceless.

    I know how much it costs, mainly because I picked it out, but also for insurance purposes, etc. I am in charge of the paperwork anyway so I would have found out sometime!

    Most jewelers would tell only my fiance the prices. He would turn around and tell me. In our situation, I know tons more about jewelry and so was better able to judge if it things were reasonably priced. We also think all big financial decisions should be made together, and the ring was the first really big one.

    @Kit_Kath:  It’s kind of a weird thing to let dominate your thoughts…is it because you worry about him spending too much?

    I know what my ring cost, I was more involved in the process than he was, lol, but if he had purchased it on his own, I’d rather not know.

    @Kit_Kath:  If he did borrow it from his Dad, or if it was a gift, you’ve just got to put that out of your mind…letting this little thing eat at you is silly and takes away from the excitement of the whole thing…YOU ARE ABOUT TO GET ENGAGED!!  Go with that and forget the rest, I’m all about being responsible and keeping an eye on the bottom line, but what’s the point of all that if you can’t just quit being so accountable and have some crazy, let’s blow a wad of cash and dress up in sailor suits on a boat called Mr. Wiggles for fun kind of time?

    its his gift to you. Nothing wrong with not knowing how much it costs imo. My dh picked and bought my ring by himself. You can add it to your insurance by the appraisal. He probably wanted u to forget about money n get what u wanted without making concessions. I think that is sweet.
