does material stuff matter mutch to you? i dont know why, but I've been thinking about weddings and engagements a lot this latest time. and i can't help but think that there's a lot of girls that thinks that the bigger the diamond at the engagment the better it will be?
Does the engagment ring mean that mutch?
What Guys Said 7
We spent a lot on her engagement ring (we already shared our finances before we got engaged so there was no me buying her a ring really) but that was more because I wanted her to have something nice that she could keep forever rather than her thinking a big diamond was important. So we decided to spend a lot on the ring but keep the wedding modest because that would that be over in a day anyway.
The whole wanting it to be something she could keep forever meant I insisted we got a platinum ring which didn't help the budget either.
She would've been happy with something much cheaper but we're both glad I splashed out on it now because she still gas it and wears it a lot, whereas the more expensive table decorations or whatever else we would have spent it on in the wedding would've been forgotten by now0
an engagment ring means nothing at all. it's just a ring.
i can't believe there are people that a ring means much to them... too materialistic isn't it?3
you wanted a "copy of a royal engagement ring. and it only costs 10,46 dollars." SHID if it was left up to me, yo ass would be getting a 58 cent ring pop out the vending machine and we would've called it a day ^^ with yo entitled ass LMAO
the nerves of some people man lololol @Red_Dragon0

Well that first user you named I`m not surprised that she`s acting the way she is.
Yeah plenty of girls become materialistic when it comes to marriage if they aren`t already. I mean maybe it shows "their true colors.0

It's not as big if a deal as people make it out to be. The engagement ring is just a symbolic representation of engagement. It's not necessary to have a ring to be engaged. That's how things were before the DeBeers diamond cartel and Tiffany & Co came along and told us that guys need to buy their women huge diamonds or else the marriage isn't real. So women got that idea in their heads and we became greedy.
I'm not against engagement rings at all. I have one myself and it's small but nice. I'm just against the greediness that some women have - they want the big rings with diamond bands and halos so they can show off to their friends.3
I think it all depends on your financial situation. To call someone greedy because they want a big diamond is uncalled for. Because in all honest opinion, that same woman can say women who thinks she's considered "greedy" just never experienced the finer things in life.
My cousin engagement ring was 18,000... Mind you, her husband was able to afford it and had no problem spending money on it. My sister's engagement ring was 3,000. But thats what her husband can afford.
I feel like it depends on your situation. If you can't afford a big diamond, dont get it. If you can, go for it. Who are we to judge the next persons desires and needs. If the woman wants it and her man has no problem getting it, hey, do you!8
For me it's kind of a big deal. I mean I want to get married once (in my whole entire life only).
I want this pretty much
.. In terms of buying it I'm happy to split with my partner. It's something I'm going to be wearing for the rest of my life on my finger. HELL I want to be able to wear the ring with pride and happiness. I know it's all about being with my partner and all that, but there will be times I'm at work, at the shops, away with the family, and I'll have this ring on my finger, the first person I would think of is him. So yeah it means a lot.. To me anyways5
I don't think it's that big of a deal. I mean, I don't need a ring to validate my engagement. Of course, it is a nice thing to have if the guy has the money to actually afford one but I wouldn't want a man to go into debt just to buy an engagement ring. That's silly.0
Nah, I don't care that much. As long as it's pretty and doesn't turn my finger green, he can spend however much he wants!0
Girls who want a big fancy ring are greedy. It has nothing to do with love. It's not wrong to want a nice ring, but to want a ring that the guy would have such a hard time paying off is quite unfair. I've been engaged before and I got to pick my ring so I know that there are plenty of beautiful rings that aren't seven grand. Even though I probably wouldn't want to be engaged again, the ring should be a symbol of your love. And not your greed for diamonds.2

Engagement ring mean nothing to me but wedding ring is more important. I dont know why people would want to get engagement ring, I heard both rings are different.
I dont care about the cost, even if it is only 500 dollars I would be happy. Thoughts that count. I like simple ring , no big diamond. But again it depends on people financial situation, if they have the money they can spend more on it if they want, it is okay.1

I don't think the object is as important as the meaning behind it personally. The marriage bands are meant to be the symbol of the bond between man and wife, so personally I'd rather a ring that suits my personality, not something to show off. And more preferably a resemblance between both the man and wife's ring. Maybe that's just me though.0
