    oh lord, not this post…hehehe….I get embarrassed when I think about how much Fiance paid (A WHOLE FRIGGEN LOT!!!), but I am so proud to wear my ring, and so proud that he worked so hard to get me the best ring ever!! (for me!)

    I voted, and i will say that even with the exhoribitant amount he paid for my ring, it appraised for DOUBLE what he paid. It blows our mind thinking about it!

    I have no idea and I don’t really care either…I love the ring and I love him! 🙂

    @ddubbz: I was thinking it is a little skewed too. I’ve been reading this site for a very long time and seen a lot of people’s wedding budgets/ring photos/etc. and this poll doesn’t match with everything else. For a site this large there shouldn’t be sooo many rings in the high end. Just saying 🙂

    I don’t know…there are only 91 replies which is a drop in the bucket compared to the size of weddingbee. I suppose some people COULD choose an amount which is much higher than what their ring is actually worth…but why WOULD they? This is an anonymous site…very few of us know each other in “real life”.

    I am not sure how much mine was. It’s been purchased, but I haven’t seen it yet! I do know taht we went to a private jeweler as apposed to a retail store, and that saves TONS of money. My Fiance will not buy anyting that isn’t very good quality. but ladies, literally, we will pay about 30-40% less, if not more than that, by avoiding a store and I will have a one of a kind ring!

    FYI- appraisals (for insurance) are ALWAYS higher than the cost. I have several pieces of jewelry and the jeweler just about doubled the actual price on the appraisal. Common practice.

    @Jamaica: But you are forgetting about all those other internet peoples out there who never comment and can just click a random option. I’m not engaged, nor will I be in the near future, so no ring for me. But nothing is stopping me from hitting that “15,000 and up” button just for the hell of it 😉

    Well, from th perspective of those saying this sort of question can cause judgement…even for an anonymous poll those with small and/or less expensive rings are less likely to click on a thread with this topic and vote.  A girl with a honkin’ rock would see the topic and be much more inclined to pop in and vote.  So yes, it could very well be skewed.

    @menobride…this is very true. I know the purchase price for my ring but have no idea what it was appraised for since my Fiance had it insured. Maybe some people are selecting the option that corresponds to the appraised value versus the purchase price…

    @babyboo…I just got a laugh at your comment. You are absolutely correct. There could possibly be some people who will just cruise by and pick the highest number and keep it moving.

    @twalila…I can see that happening as well =)

    I think posters may be interpreting the question in two different ways: (1) how much your Fiance actually paid for the ring, and (2) the appraisal value of the ring, which in some cases can be substantially more than the price paid.

    @gummibear – – LMAO no job = ring from crackerjack box, HYSTERICAL!!!

    I have a question for the OP’er – – Do these comments answer question(s) for you?  In your OP you say that you know there is a similar thread re: this topic so I was just wondering why you wanted to post this thread again Tongue out

    @snake.  Totally agree.  What’s the point?

    What is the point of this post?  Unlike the millions of other posts I read on this board I find this one pointless.

    I have some idea, but don’t know for sure.  If I did, I’m not sure I’d be too inclined to talk about it.  I also don’t know what it appraised for, but my husband made a comment it was 2-3x higher than what he paid.  I think some people on this thread might be posting appraisal amounts vs. actual amounts paid.  Appraisal amounts are almost always higher because they are meant to be the retail replacement value.  Not a lot of people actually pay retail for their diamonds if they can find a better deal (which most can).  Lovely rings, everyone.
