I know diamond rings are traditional, but I never really wanted one. They're a poster child for artificial scarcity, meaning the prices are way overinflated. I'd rather my boyfriend save up money to buy us a reliable car or something rather than spend a lot of money on a ring.
Plus I honestly just don't like diamonds that much. Personally I'd prefer a nice braided or carved silver, or maybe something with a pearl or white opal in it.

If I ever get remarried, I don't need a diamond ring. They're soooo expensive and they're really not worth much! My wedding ring cost over $1,000 and when I sold it after my divorce I only got $100 for it. And that was the highest offer.. I took it to several places. So next time I'm happy with cubic zirconia and a white gold band.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
