I don’t feel weird, worried, or self conscious about the price. But then again I don’t consider my rings to be extremely expensive(they cost a reasonable amount that we were comfortable spending). I love jewelry and I enjoy collecting higher end pieces from Cartier and Van Cleef & Arples. So while my engagement ring may cost more than any single piece of jewelry in my current collection, my entire collection costs much more. What does worry me about losing the ring, is losing something that has so much sentimental value to me. My Fiance proposed in Italy. It was his first trip outside of the United States since being adopted from the Philipines, which made it even more special. I think when buying a ring people should spend the amount that they’d be comfortable re-spending if the ring were to be lost. Otherwise, they should get insurance. Enjoy your ring!

I am with you, anything over $300 feels expensive to me. Probably because I rented a room in someone’s house and lived on cup ramen and bananas while paying off school debts for a few years. I told my SO anything between 1-3K was fine for an engagement ring (and I wouldn’t be upset if he spent less than that, honestly). I only said that because I think it is harder to find something nice under 1k. I had an ex that wanted to spend 10k on a ring for me, but I told him I’d rather he just give me the money and I could get an engagement car.

Thank you!  The pave band is super thin and delicate, which is why I chose it. I want to have band that is slightly mismatched, I’m currently thinking about this look, but I just have to see how it looks on me:
