    We got both my ering and wedding band as a set because I loved them together. Together it was 2100, I’m assuming the ering was around 1600 but I’m not 100%.

    Mine was $3k. I think that $4k is not exorbitant

    BookTea:  The ring itself or that I didn’t mind sharing a photo for someone who asked? FWIW I didn’t select my ring.


    thegrandinquisitor:  Thank you!

    blt982:  I’m surprised too, though a) it isn’t the majority (the majority (55% of respondents) have a ring costing under $6k) and b) there are some big rings and big budgets on this forum that don’t accurately reflect the norms IRL.

    But yes, I was pretty shocked to see how big some people’s rings are when I first came on here! I only know of two people IRL with very expensive rings, and they’re both pretty well-off.

    Mine was less than $500. I wouldn’t want anything more. Recently, Fiance & I went back to the jewler where he purchased it to look at wedding bands for him and I was talking to the jewler about my ring (it’s really unique, so I was saying that it wasn’t anything like what I thought I wanted, but I ended up loving it) and he described it perfectly for me. He said: “Rings can be like people. You don’t have to be loud to get noticed. Some rings may shout. This ring whispers, but everyone listens.”

    Chelsiex0:  2100 is a hella lot of money for me!  Mine was $500.  I couldn’t imagine him paying too much for a ring, but then mine was not a diamond which really helped the costs.

    ksn1219:  Whiskers0:  He started off modelling and living off his family money and then he invested in property. Once the properties were paid off in full, besides putting aside money for things like rates and insurance, he used the rent money as income which he then used to purchase a number of day-care centres around the country. In Australia spaces at day-care centres fill up fast (some parents even book a spot when their child is a newborn in some areas) so the demand is high which means he can charge a premium. He also opens them in “well-to-do” areas where people are willing to pay top-dollar without even blinking. Certain centres charge more than others and sometimes I’d be shocked at the pricing. Some of them would cost even more than my wage which would defeat the purpose of even going back to work for people like me. But then again the people who send their children there generally have enough income to hire a nanny even without returning to work so it’s no big deal for them really.
