Do what you want. Ring is a symbol of your guys’ committment to each other. It’s not suppose to a symbol to fend off other people’s comments. You shouldn’t worried about other people’s judgement.

This may sound cliche, but I think it’ the thought that counts.  I think it’s better to spend what you can afford on a ring without going into debt.

Do what you like! However, consider something like moissanite. He’ll get the “look” of a bigger stone but it’s not diamond so it’s much cheaper. Still, it fools many many people.

I think you should spend the money on something else and get the smaller, less expensive ring.

Unless you really care about jewelry or status, engagement rings are a waste of money. Some people might judge your fiance for it, but really, who cares about the judgments of small-minded and shallow people? 

FWIW, we didn’t get me an engagement ring at all and I don’t think anyone has noticed. I’m not the kind of woman who is into status or expensive jewelry and everyone knows it. Fortunately, anyone with an opinion about it has kept it to themselves. 🙂
