    It was my grandmothers stone, and he barely paid for the setting on it, I ended up paying for it mostly

    We went looking for rings together because he wanted me to give him an idea of what I liked.  I ended up picking out 2 rings that I really loved, both in the same price range.  The one he ended up getting was less than his monthly salary pre-tax and it came as a set with my band.  I love it!

    I would have been so upset if he spent 3 months worth on a ring.  I’m too sensible to think that’s a reasonable thing to do and I’d be afraid to wear something that expensive!

    I picked out the ring and he bought it. I didn’t see the point in spending money on a piece of jewelry when we have/will have other expenses.

    tinkks:  I voted wrong, I missed the before taxes part.  Before taxes a little less than 1, after taxes about 1.5
