Ladies (or guys), do you really want a diamond ring or would you rather something else?

Buying a diamond ring is dumb... more than half the people lose their rings, diamonds are not exotic, in fact they are found most anywhere, they are incredibly expensive and they honestly don't look all that great in my opinion. Do you stick by this rubbish from a hundred year ad campaign or would you rather something that is rare ie ruby, jade or a sapphire?

  • I think it's pointless.
    I don't want a diamond ring or a wedding.
    Seems like a waste of money to me, but to each their own.

      Oh. Wouldn't want a ruby our anything either.
      Honestly I'm not a big fan of jewelry and I'd probably just lose it anyways.

  • I prefer other stones. My birthday is April so I already see enough diamond stuff aimed at me and it's all pretty boring... I like moonstone and rose quartz though and the necklace my boyfriend gave me is smoky quartz so something like that would be cool.

  • I pretty much hate rings so I rather get a nice necklace with a heart or something than a ring. If I had to get a ring, then I want one that is not crazy expensive (like a week salary) and looks good. I can't take someone who spends more than that seriously plus I rather spend money on more useful things.

  • This is the ring I've been looking at, but I'd like it in silver.

    I guess crystals would have the same effect so that would be fine. Maybe blue would be nice. Sapphire is my birthstone.
    But I think I'd keep it silver with clear stones because I like the simplicity and how it would go with anything.

  • I love my diamond engagement ring, it easily matches everything I wear and I love looking at it. My wedding band has sapphires and eternity ring has diamonds because those two are mine and hubbies birthstones, and he did so well choosing something different

  • My wedding ring's center stone is the birth stone of my child; a black sapphire. It's surrounded by 28 accent diamonds though.

  • Told my boyfriend if he proposes to buy me a cheap ring as I lose my rings all the time, something sweet and cute. Maybe some diamonds, I don't mind. I don't mind at all
    I'd lose it in a month anyways. I'm useless like that
