    I see no problem with it. It’s the thought that counts, but if his ass can afford something better, but is just being cheap then we got a real problem. Off wit his head.

    Lol @wordsmith..
    @Sterby I hope it wouldn’t be a problem, because I would have a problem with her having a problem. Im not trying to diminish the holy sanctity of marriage, but to me a ring is a ring. I maybe a little simple minded in regards to things like that, but I never been a jewelry person.

    I for one love the small things in life, so it wouldn’t matter to me where it came from all that matters is it’s real. I was watching divorce court the other day and the wife said she had been wearing her ring for the past two years and noticed a cloudiness in what she thought was a diamond so she went and got the ring appraised and to her surprise the damn ring was fake it was only worth about $15. Now that’s some bull s**t!!!!

    I would have a problem with it and this is why: this is not a test, this is a lack of thought, [immaturity], insensitivity and flat out callousness. The ring does not have to be the HOPE DIAMOND, which has a curse on it by the way – but represents symbolically his commitment to you and how he feels about you as the person he plans to spend the rest of his life with. This is not the time for a freakin’ game?! If you would pull this crap, I would never trust you with the future of my life, hearth and home. Honestly, we are all suppose to be adults, here. It should not be focused solely on the amount, but you shouldn’t want to go cheap and then say, ‘I am doing this as a test to see if she loves me for me?’ If women used that principle, then women should say, “I know what you make since we have been together all these years and this the best you can do? I am out of here!!’ See, what you have started?! Vintage or estate jewelry is great to give and it can be affordable and pricey. Don’t do something tacky like that, fellas. Stop thinking in terms of what you giving up – because clearly, you getting something that is absolutely priceless.

    Take the Hallmark approach to life:
    “When you care enough to send the very best.”

    If you can’t do that, just don’t do it.

    Wow, Wanderers Path!

    great points, its hard to dispute anything you said, but I think that we may have to agree to disagree on this one. now I cant speak for no other man, but as for me personally, I’m wired a little differently. “Complex-Simplicity” is how I would defined my perspective. I find value in the things that most people may find not to be so valuable. so many times we pay for things that life gives us for free. the price shouldn’t always dictate the value… for me I guess the ring itself would be more so a symbolization of the vessel that carries the spirit of the love that is the inspiration for the ring.

    If I give you an inexpensive ring in the spirit of true love, then the substance of my intentions is a greater reflection of the ring’s truth value. jewelry has never been my cup of tea. I value my African and Bob Marley bracelets like there’re worth $50,000… and although she may not be as simplistic as me, I hope that she would understand that what makes the ring priceless is not what it’s worth, but instead what it represents.

    Yea, the place of the purchase of the ring doesn’t matter. All except the pawn shop is ok. But we ain’t talking bout rings unless somebody bout to be a MAN and actually go and get the ring… @Sterby, you thinking about making moves.. ??

    It matters to me. We are spending a lifetime together and you choose to buy me a cheap pawn shop ring.

    The price shouldn’t matter, if that person who brought the ring had no other option.
