It's totally true that diamonds are a girls best friend and obviously I would love an engagement ring that had such a big rock I needed a crane to lift my hand. Which girl wouldn't want that?
But I would prefer an engagement ring that actually had some meaning. It would be more special to me if the guy had actually worked to get me the best ring he could afford. I would treasure that ring more, no matter what the size, because it would remind me how much he loved me.
Nowadays an engagement ring is sometimes seen as a man's status like how much he earns etc. But that devalues what the ring actually symbolizes. It symbolizes your love for one another and the fact that you are his and he is yours.
The money he's spent doesn't matter. My ideal engagement ring would be one worn by other women in his family, like his grandmother's ring. That would be the most romantic gesture for me, but then again I'm a sucker for old fashioned romance and rituals.3
