When I first got it I did feel a little heady occasionally if I would think about it, actually it can still happen, like you would never walk around with that much cash in your handbag, that would just be insane. However I did get used to it and I don’t feel vulnerable wearing it generally. Once or twice I’ve felt some slightly uncomfortable attention on public transport by unsavoury looking characters and sometimes I twist my rings into the palm of my hand.

Mostly it’s all gonna be in your head and nobody around is plotting to rob it off your finger.

My ring cost $3,140 (for reference, not a super expensive engagement ring) and that is a LOT for me. Keep in mind I am a college student and I do not have money. My fiance is in the military, so not super well off, but he’s a good saver.

I don’t even think about the fact that I am wearing thousands of dollars on my finger. When I clean it, I remember why it cost so much haha. But otherwise, no. I don’t think about it and it doesn’t feel weird. My FMIL’s ring cost about $15k. She doesn’t think about it either.

It might feel crazy at first but you’ll get used to it. Just get that bad boy insured! And post pictures when you get it because that sounds like an incredible stone ๐Ÿ™‚

I try not to focus on the cost but the fact that it was his decision to spend that much money on something for me. I am still not used to having… a car? on my finger because I actually wanted a smaller diamond and a simple ring. But I think of it as my SO wasn’t pressured to get me something that expensive and it was his own decision to do so. I love my ring, not because of the cost or the way it looks, but because my fiancé is the best guy and I am lucky to have him, the ring was a nice extra. ๐Ÿ˜‰

naturelovebee :  Yes let’s see! Wax molds never do it justice but that just means the actual ring will be 100 times more incredible haha

I knew it was expensive when he gave it to me but it never really occurred to me to think about it… It’s only now that I have joined these boards and have researched in to just how special and rare the stone is (not to mention the sentiment) that I have become more concerned about wearing it. I now worry about damaging it or loosing it. What I don’t want to do is worry to the point I don’t enjoy it as that is silly. So I guess I just feel lucky to own something so beautiful and I enjoying carrying the love of my husband around with me whenever I wear it :).

naturelovebee :  Wow that is a gorgeous diamond! Rock that thing with pride and don’t worry about the cost. It will be insured, just ensure it’s insured for loss too and not just damage.

First, gorgeous diamond! Your ring will be amazing!

I was really worried about wearing something so expensive on my finger all the time. But once my husband proposed, I just loved the ring so much and wanted to wear it all the time and my worries about how expensive it was just faded away.ย

It’s worth noting that there is a difference between cost and value.

The cost is how much money your fiance paid for your ring while the value is how much you love your ring.

It is possible to have rings that are:

high cost; high value

Low cost; high value

High cost; low value

Low cost; low value.

Just make sure that you enjoy your ring.
