    I may be being a hopeless romantic but.. when it comes to an engagement ring, go with your heart. The cost difference is negligible.

    I can see wanting to get the better deal, but overall when you have so few living expenses at this stage $250 doesn’t seem like a big deal to go over budget. I’d go for the original! How romantic that your Fiance gets her dream ring!

    I still say go with the original ring. 

    • In terms of engagement rings, less than $1,500 is a great deal to start with. 
    • It’s the one she wanted from the start. 
    • The price difference is small. If you spread it out over a year, it’s like $1 a day. Over the rest of your life, it’s probably a few cents.

    @otto2008:  it sucks that it came out a bit higher than you were expecting. But as PPs have said, please get her the one she picked. Look at it this way – if she ever does upgrade, that would make a really lovely RHR.

    Is there anyway you can pick up a few side jobs to bolster the budget? I know she said that she wouldn’t have a problem contributing – but I think it would be that much more special if you found it in your heart (and wallet) to just do make it happen. Just my opinion…

    $250 shouldn’t be make or break. Get the one she loves or she’ll always wonder about that ring.

    @otto2008:  I love it out of obligation. I would never admit this out loud to anyone though. It’s my own fault I told him to not go too crazy as I am conscious that these things are expensive…I didn’t expect him to go the other extreme though. I am choosing my wedding ring.
