I got engaged at 18 and am getting married this weekend at 19. My almost-husband is almost 22. He surprised me with a 1 ct solitaire and a .50 ctw wedding band. I think I’m lucky to have such a chunky set so young, but we both are super-savers when it comes to money. All “real”. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

The reality is I would’ve been thrilled with a plastic ring. It’s more about the man I’m spending the rest of my life with. This was just a happy plus. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I think carat size will depend more on the amount the couple makes (e.g. education level) than their age. I know some couples who both work in tech who got well over a carat, and I know others who work low-level office jobs in my hometown who got half a carat or less.

Engaged at 26, 1/2 carat, solitaire style (what I wanted). We live in a city so housing is expensive and we wanted to not spend an arm and a leg but I love a classic solitaire. I would have been happy with a CZ but Darling Husband didn’t want anything ‘fake’ he said (men are funny sometimes).

I love my 1/2 carat 3 years later and wouldn’t change a thing ๐Ÿ™‚ Alot of my friends have upgrade their rings but I never would want to becuae I love that we got engaged young (for our area/social group).
