I’m sorry for your frustration.  ๐Ÿ™

Have you discussed what kind of ring you/he want?  Maybe if he knows that you are ok with a modest ring so that you can be officially engaged he’d be more willing to propose? Similarly, have you discussed how long you’d expect to be engaged?  Maybe he’s worried that once he proposes, a big chunk of “house” money was need for a ring, then a wedding, and then a honeymoon?

What you could do is get a cheaper non diamond ring, maybe a gemstone as your engagement ring and when you move in to the new home you could upgrade to a diamond.

My favorite color is purple and I am not a fan of diamonds, so I just got an amethyst gemstone engagement ring in a white gold band. It was about $250 before taxes which was a heck of a lot cheaper than the smallest diamond they had.

At least it will get a ring on your finger and you can move on to even more exciting things like planning your wedding ๐Ÿ™‚
