    No way!

    I would tell them I don't know the cost.

    Personally, I NEVER like discussing money in any situation.

    Now, I have said on the bee, my ring costs X, but would never tell someone I know, even if they asked.

    I’ve had several friends ask how much money we make, etc. and it just makes me really uncomfortable. I’ve adopted my husband’s response and just say “we’re okay” nice and vague.

    Would I lie? No, but I would straight up tell them that it is none of their beeswax ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t know the cost of my ring. And if I did, I would never tell someone, let alone lie about it. The whole thing seems so bizarre to me.

    I know how much my ring was because we picked it out together. We’ve been asked how much it was once, and my fiance told the truth, but I still think it’s rude to as. It shouldn’t be about price. It should be about the commitment. I know people harp on about it, but an engagement ring is given as a promise to marry. Why even mention price?

    @Mrs.Estep, Yeah, I think most of us are on the same page as you. If I were you, I wouldn’t dwell on it too much. If I’ve learned one thing, it’s that sometimes you will NEVER understand why people choose to do or say certain things . . .

    No, I wouldn’t lie. I don’t see any reason too. If someone thought it was too expensive or too cheap I wouldn’t care anyways. Why should I? It’s what he could afford and it doesn’t matter. What it stands for is what matters to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’d say I found it in the street. Anyone with such a lack of class to ask deserves a stupid answer.

    I don’t like discussing the cost of my ring. I feel judged. My Fiance picked out what he picked out and I love it. When people outright ask me how much it cost (which has happened to me at work a few times), I politely tell them that it’s none of their business.

    I would not even answer the question.  That is awfully rude for someone to even ask such a question.  I think I would beat around the bush and eventually just give them a crooked look if they kept persisting.  The only lie I may tell, if I was not feeling confident enough to give them the cold shoulder, would be to say I simply do not know.
