My mom got upset at my boyfriend for proposing to me with a cheap ring. It was so much drama we called off the engagement for a while. My mom nagged me about how it didn't even look like an engagement ring( it had a sapphire in the middle instead of a diamond, my boyfriend asked me if I wanted his birthstone and I said yes but I meant on the sides, lol) . Days had passed and my boyfriend asked me for an example of the ring I would want. And I showed him this one
I showed my mom the same ring and she thought it was pretty until she saw the price and went on nagging about how cheap it was and how I'm selling myself short and if he can't afford better he doesn't deserve me. I'm hurt and confused as to why this little symbol is such a big deal. I'm I selling myself short to not care as much for the ring?

You have a good and pure heart, and I'm sorry to say, your mother needs to keep her nose outta this one. The selection of an engagement ring is the exclusive domain of you and your boyfriend. Love isn't to be measured by anything so silly as the cost of the ring. The ring is an outward symbol of your profession of love and fidelity. As you probably already know, it's warn on your left hand, as this hand is closest to your heart. As nicely as possible, tell mom to butt out.12
