I see an awful lot of men that have these ugly cheap gold or silver wedding bands that couldn't have cost her anymore than $100 dollars. Why is it that women expect these massive diamonds while they contribute pennies to his ring.? I paid $800(monster sale from $1200)for his it has a double row of diamonds. A lady came in with what looked like at least a 15,000 dollar ring on her finger.. The color size and clarity was unbelievable, but when I looked at his hand I saw a cheap gold band?

When a man decides he wants to get married, the woman is HIS jewel, not the outward accessories. She is what he wants to display to the world, she is his treasure.
The idea of a diamond ring being "tradition" came about around WW2 by de Beers as a way to sell lots of diamonds.
But the idea of exchanging rings for a married couple goes back to Babylonian times, though the rings were simple unadorned rings, two circles to symbolize unity.
Lucky me, I got married outside of Western traditions so I didn't need to buy a diamond ring ha ha and indeed rings are not exchanged in my wife's culture.0
