Ladies would you be okay if your man propose to you with a ring he bought from wall mart or Pawn shops, and fellas would you propose to your lady with a ring from wall-mart and pawn shops also+7February 5, 2017 at 12:31 am #4788Lisa LorenParticipant
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.+5February 5, 2017 at 8:02 am #4848
@Lisa i know where you coming from, but at the same time he probably want to test you to see what type girlfriend are you? If you not about them coins you know+6February 5, 2017 at 8:28 am #4849Word SmithParticipant
Even if I only give my girl a ring pop, she better accept it. I work 2 hours a day from 9am – 11am. I dont have XL or Large money. My pockets on smedium.+6February 5, 2017 at 8:56 am #4852
@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.+6February 5, 2017 at 7:54 pm #4866Lashawn WilliamstonParticipant
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!!!!+5February 6, 2017 at 7:30 am #4945Wanderers PathParticipant
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.+5February 6, 2017 at 7:32 pm #4995
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.+5February 7, 2017 at 1:19 pm #5284Sky RobertsParticipant
You make some great points, but I would like a nice ring though.+5February 7, 2017 at 1:27 pm #5287Tawana NealyParticipant
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.. ??+6February 7, 2017 at 2:53 pm #5639February 14, 2017 at 1:45 pm #5853Word SmithParticipant

I THINK IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT KIND OF RING IT IS , AS LONG AS THAT PERSON IS WILLING TO TAKE THAT STEP…PLAIN AND SIMPLE+6May 17, 2017 at 9:05 am #10138Sofia DovilParticipant
It matters to me. We are spending a lifetime together and you choose to buy me a cheap pawn shop ring.+5May 18, 2017 at 3:39 pm #10190Lolly ElenaParticipant
The price shouldn’t matter, if that person who brought the ring had no other option.+3May 19, 2017 at 1:54 pm #10215Alex SmartParticipant
All of you make great points, but at the end of the day come on fellas. Like really! If your queen is your queen then you should treat her like it.+4May 20, 2017 at 3:20 pm #10265
@Alex I totally agree. I just talking about if you couldnt afford a ring that she wants or deserve.+2June 1, 2017 at 3:36 pm #11233Hillary AdamsParticipant
