What does it mean if my boyfriend gives me a diamond ring for my birthday?

My boyfriend gave me my birthday present early and it was a diamond ring. I love it but what does it mean? Seriously? Like that's what you give when you propose to someone. Why did he give it to me? And we haven't been dating that long either. I tried looking it up and it costs like 300 bucks. Like isn't that too much for a b day present?
What does it mean if my boyfriend gives me a diamond ring for my birthday?I do look cute wearing it tho.

Updates:
1mo Wait is that the finger that wedding rings are supposed to be worn on? If it is then wtf that's where he told me it's traditional to wear it.

  • There are a few possibilities I can think of.
    1.) He is incredibly rich and has lots of money to spare. $300 to him is like $20 to the average joe. Because of this, it didn't seem like a big deal to him-- he's just filthy rich.

    2.) He is trying to move things wayyyy too fast. Like this gives me the impression of neediness or over attachment. He really likes you... like *really* likes you.

    3.) It was an innocent mistake. He thought, "Hey, this girl is pretty cool. I bet she really wants a diamond ring. Psssh, I think the price is worth it. She'll love it!"

    I think it is a bit of 2. He *really* likes you. He probably thought it was a good idea with more expensive = more valuable = more happiness. It's just a gift in a sense, but the gift means that he is probably head over heels with you. Is the strong attraction clingy? Is it cute? Well, whether that is good or bad, I leave to you to decide.

    He didn't do it in some proposing fashion, right? Just making sure you didn't accidentally accept a proposal. That'd be kinda awkward lol

      No he just said here's your b day present. And his parents are insanely rich so it is a bit of 1 too. He does act kinda clingy he also bought me kanye tickets and a plane ticket to Cali too. I like it but I do think it's too much. He acts clingy too and he's super hot which makes it more weird.

  • I think @dangerdoge has it with number (1) and he might see it like as a commitment/promise gift (being exclusive etc) - I doubt he knows the significance of the wedding finger - He probably things it is like a Claddagh ring for the Irish, if you wear a Claddagh ring with heart pointed inward, it means your heart belongs to somebody. If it is pointed outwards it means you are looking for love - Overall I guessing he is trying to be nice just being a bit too expansive.

  • That ring is really nice and pretty. It's a nice gift and happy birthday 🎁 🎂. Maybe he just looked at it as a gift only. I think he wanted to impress you by getting you something nice.

    • 1mo

      What kinda guy gives a chick he's been dating for a couple weeks an expensive gift? An idiot.

    • 1mo

      For his family 300 bucks is what for (not sure about your family) but for my family is 5 bucks.

  • You are a fool to wear it on your fingers so early in your dating game. Just remove it and keep it aside. You don't know the significance of wearing it over there. He wants to run a sprint in a marathon. And will not survive in the long endurance race , if he tries to run too fast.

      It literally doesn't make a difference to me if I wear it or don't wear it. I just don't want him to think that I'm throwing away his beautiful gift. I just wanna tell him that I don't want too much in our relationship yet.

    • 1mo

      Yes , it would be a good idea.

  • Jesus... you and your boyfriend are ballin for high school... $300 diamond ring? Fuck that, that watch had to be at least $500

  • You've been dating for two weeks and he gets you a diamond ring.
    Then you need to LEAVE HIM.
    He is getting really attached way too quickly

  • 2 weeks of dating, buys you a diamond ring, tells you to put it on your left ring finger, and you're moving out of state for school... do you have running shoes on? If so, use them.

      Oh ok, so he probably has a nice allowance. As long as they're good people and this isn't a way of trying to get you with gifts or the whole marriage concern then you might be alright lol

    • 1mo

      He's a nice person. He's Catholic (like me) and is waiting for marriage so he isn't trying to get into my pants. I really like him so I don't want to end things on a big misunderstanding.

  • Well, you always seemed like an expensive girl to me.. so I guess it's normal xD

      I'm not gonna get married in high school I have a career to worry about and so much to think about this is crazy.

  • The symbolism of it needs to be discussed. If you aren't planning on being a teenage bride, I think you might consider returning it to him. And that's beside the fact that it's a really expensive gift from a teenager.

      After 2 weeks of dating?

    • 1mo

      Thinks he's slick by giving you a diamond ring and telling you to put it on your ring finger, I don't know what his intentions are but you should clear things up

    • 1mo

      I'm def gonna clear this up I'm not gonna be his fiancée in high school this is just wrong

  • I guess he like you and his way is showing that is by spending 300 dollars apparently...
    😅😅
    Or the paranoia option:
    He feels guilty for doing something and he tries to "make it up".

    But I would go with the first option.

      @thissiteisforpervs I've seen rich people with that kind of behavior. They feel powerful when they spend their money and think the other person will think highly of them after that. It's crazy though, I wouldn't except this kind of gift even after two years, thinking it's not an engagement ring, he can't be THAT crazy
