My fiance got my engagement ring on clearance at JC Penny for only $500! It’s 1 carat and 10k white gold. I couldn’t believe how inexpensive it was so I was looking on their website. I couldn’t ring my ring under the engagement/wedding ring section, but I found it under the other diamond ring section. It doesn’t say it’s an engagement ring..however, when we picked it out at the store the sales associate asked us when the wedding was and she didn’t say anything about it not actually being an engagement ring. It’s a big cluster of diamonds..when other people (the ones who actually know about jewelry unlike myself lol) look at it, will they know that it’s not actually an engagement ring? What’s the difference? On the reviews one person said her husband gave it to her as an anniversary ring. Back when we were ring shopping, there was a ring I liked at Zales that also had a cluster of diamonds..but this one was in the shape of a buckle..anyways, the sales associate there told me I shouldn’t get it because it’s actually a fashion ring. Could the one I bought from JCP actually be a fashion ring? I still LOVE it, just want to know the difference and if anyone else will know it’s not an engagement ring! 🙂
It’s getting sized right now but here are some pics I took in the store

It’ll presumably be on your left-hand ring finger, so I’m guessing people will assume it’s an engagement ring. Ignore how the store categorises it – it makes no difference.

I don’t think it matters if you love it then what anyone else thinks doesn’t matter. A lot of people have been getting gemstone engagement rings and those I guess wouldn’t be considered traditional engagement rings but I still think they are gorgeous and if that’s what anyone wants as their e-ring then so be it. You are the one wearing it so don’t worry about anyone else

@Soon2bMrsVk: If it’s the ring that you wear to signify that you are engaged, it is an engagement ring. If anyone looked at it and thought they could “tell” that isn’t one…. they would be wrong because it is your engagement ring.

Don’t worry about it. the ring my partner and I have picked out is technically a diamone wedding band but it suits us so we are having at as our engagement ring.

The only difference between an “engagement ring” and other rings is marketing. A real engagement ring is whatever y’all want to use for an engagement ring.

I think it’s beautiful and I know if I saw it on your left finger I’s never assume it wasn’t an engagement ring!

I tend to see cluster rings as more of fashion rings, the same for gemstone rings that are not diamonds. HOWEVER the second a guy asks you to marry him and places a ring on your left ring finger, it’s an engagement ring.

Very pretty! Congratulations!
To me, if it’s the ring your man gave you when he proposed and you two became engaged, then it’s an engagement ring.

If it’s the ring he gave you when he asked you to marry him, then it’s your engagement ring. Mine was very much sold as a fashion ring, but I’m proud to have it as my e-ring.

1. Super gorgeous ring
2. Great deal!
3. Be proud!
4. If it’s on your engagement ring finger, its DEFINITELY an engagement ring, so don’t be silly and start doubting that!

Your ring is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!
And it is definitely an engagement ring! If you love it and your fiance bought it and gave it to you with the intent of becoming engaged, that’s all that matters.
The store, price, style, etc. doesn’t matter at all. All that matters is that you and your fiance love each other and that the ring represents your intent and relationship.

If your guy gave it to you as an engagement ring, it is an engagement ring! It’s beautiful!

If it’s worn on your left hand ring finger as a symbol of your engagement, it’s an engagement ring. Even if it came out of a vending machine or off a loaf of bread.

First, your ring is gorgeous and second, if it symbolises your engagement, then it is an engagement ring!!!
