    It is going to be a ring from the man who loves you, symbolizing his desire to spend the rest of his life with you. That is what matters, not where it is from.

    I wouldn’t have a problem with that at all.  If you and the Fiance like it then that is all that matters.  I would certainly be surprised upon hearing it is from WalMart but that doesn’t make it any less special.

    I don’t see what the problem is with the ring. If you love it, by all means, go for it!

    BUT

    but but but

    (there’s always a but)

    Make sure you find out what exactly happens after you buy the ring. What is the exchange and return policy? What is the warranty and what does it cover? Do you have to buy it separately? What voids the warranty (another jeweler working on it? rhodium dipping?) What happens if you need it sized, or a stone falls out, or a prong gets bent, etc. You should find all these things out before you buy, and definitely get it appraised independently and insured afterwards, just like any ring you would buy!

    @pharmy:  I know some of these.

    90 day return policy. You can buy a warranty (different ones that last so many years.) Depends on which you get.

    If you lose a stone or anything they will replace the stone. If you don’t have a warranty they will replace it anyways but for a small fee.

    @softballchic_2006:  Exactly! (I looked at Walmart rings myself, but my local store just doesn’t have that great of a jewelry selection.) And good point about the ceremomy and honeymoon! I’d rather have wonderful memories than an expensive ring, because in the end, that’s what really matters. 🙂

    I wouldn’t care one bit. I actually looked at Walmart when we first started looking at rings, as we were also on a budget! We ended up with a moissanite though, so Walmart was off the table in the end. As long as you’re comfortable brushing them off, you should get what you like. And I feel sorry for the SO’s/FI’s of those girls who said they would leave their SO if he ever bought them a ring from Walmart. I would have been happy with a $10 CZ ring myself as long as I got the man to love and hold forever.

    @softballchic_2006:  honestly I’m not sure. I guess a bit more research would do the trick. But heres the thing, if you love the ring get it. It doesnt’ matter if its big, large, white, brown, ugly, or even bought at a yard sale. I think people need to get the stick out of their @$$ when it comes to pretty much everything wedding and what they THINK it has to be. The wedding industry is already overhyped. Do what you want and I honestly would question the validity of the friendship you have with a person if they judge you based on something as petty as where you are getting your engagement ring.

    @Woodstock:  I don’t trust anything their website says, its all BS and lipservice. Plus the blood diamond thing is not the only issue its the entire chain of production and distribution. When you see something at a fraction of a price, it cannot be made without the exploitation of somebody.

    @teabiscuit:  or it could be companies overpricing their diamonds because they think they’re better.

    EDIT: kind of like paying for a particular name brand solely for the brand.. not because they were constructed any different than the cheaper brand

    flyawaycricket this may be a small part of it but Wallmart has a well documented, extensive record of ethical problems and covering up the controversies.

    In any case, I didnt mean to hijack the thead, I know this wasnt the original question and I don’t want to lose track of the original point:

    congratulations and rock the ring you have its lovely.
