    Diamond and other (for the finance option). It was a family heirloom so it was purchased in the 1940s and I’d pretty much guarantee it was bought outright then.

    @SpecialSundae:  How funny!  Same here, except 1930.

    We financed my ring, but it is 18 month interest free financing. We will have it paid off before the 18 months is up. We could pay it off right now if we wanted to.

    Cash and diamond, but it’s not like it was $50,000 or anything. It was like $3000.

    Cash and natural sapphire and diamond. Our plan is no debt of any sort so everything is being paid as we go, I don’t want to start our marriage off in debt. 🙂

    Cash and diamond. I don’t believe in financing anything other than houses, cars, and education. Other than that if I can’t afford it now, I don’t need it. Darling Husband feels the same way.

    Darling Husband borrowed half the cash from his dad, then paid him back after his next bonus.  So it wasn’t bought outright really, but it wasn’t financed either.  He was going to wait to pay cash but a good opportunity to propose came up.

    I have a diamond.

    Outright and diamond. I wouldn’t feel comfortable with him carrying a debt for it and neither would he.

    This did mean that we both had to be patient. The proposal was not rushed, saving takes time and I fully understood that fact.

    Cash & diamond. We did not finance anything for our wedding. We saved our asses off.

    Mine is a very practical $1500 1ct t/w band e.ring with a .6 ct wedding band which prob cost about $300. It certainly doesn’t compare to some of the extravagant rings I’ve seen on this site but I love the blingyness on my finger and how the bands catch the light
