    I would honestly obsess over whether the engagement ring would match my wedding ring and whether they would match my husband's wedding ring

    and it really just made me go "what is the POINT of all this he can just give me an engagement ring and then I'll take it off before the wedding and we can reuse it as a wedding ring and everything will match and my OCD-like obsession with things being matching will be SATISFIED"

    The standard engagement ring is supposed to equal two months pay or something like that

    I think the band just has to be the same color and it's fine

    my first family doctor

    the one i had until i was 10

    was this incredibly old guy, like maybe 70 or 80?

    this guy was so old he was the one who delivered my mom

    but he was a friend of the family and the only doctor my mother ever had so she stuck with him out of loyalty and familial guilt

    anyway as a child there would be times where i'd be doing stuff and suddenly i'd get severe pain and have difficulty breathing and so on

    the doctor said i was just an emotional child and that my parents needed to teach me how to calm the fuck down and stop being a wuss

    then, when i was like 10 he fucking died and we got a new family doctor who wasn't a senile hack

    in my very first appointment with him he diagnosed me with asthma

    fuck you, doctor macdonell

    you fucking asshole

    That's a tradition some places. You switch the ring from right to left usually.

    did you know they sell wedding/engagement rings in a three ring set

    a wedding band for you and the man, and an engagement ring for you

    and the engagement ring and the wedding don't just match, they actually slot in together to form one larger ring

    That is something that tiffanys came up with in the 1950's and is absolute bullshit.

    You should spend what you can reasonably afford and if the bitch questions it you slap her in the face and walk away with the ring.

    blake i wanna hug you for this post

    so many people subscribe to fucking MYTHS created by jewelry companies in the 20th century

    for example, the proliferation of diamonds as the only true engagement ring

    my fiancee's engagement ring is actually white gold with sapphires, with tiny diamonds on the side

    diamonds as the only wedding ring stone, and all this "Cut, clarity, cuntiness" bullshit mythology was basically invented by De Beers to sell diamonds to idiots

    and the "two months" thing was invented by Tiffany's

    Yeah it's all a load of crock to get you to overpay for these things

    I used two smaller diamonds from the engagement ring of my recently deceased great grandmother, worth 600-700 by themselves, which in turn enabled me to get a slightly large main rock

    basically if you know your woman well enough to be marrying her, you will know how expensive a ring she will want. Nowadays most people are much more practical about these things

    Well no, cut clarity and carrat are very real things when we were young we went to the perth mint where at the time you could see diamond displays and there is a difference.

    A small stone with a great cut and clarity and a setting to show it off will catch your eye from across the room compared to a big poor quality diamond.

    If I was to buy a ring I would in all honest buy a synthetic diamond which is flawless in it's clarity and spend the majority of the money that I spend on the setting.

    Janson probably

    she has a titanium tension-set ring with diamonds inlaid and a blue sapphire as the main stone

    it's gorgeous

    the ring I like is also titanium tension-set but a different style from hers

    I was going to say it's not a real engagement ring because of that as well.

    But then I realised I didn't know what finger they are meant to go on.

    If I ever propose I'll be like, "I know it's not supposed be on the thumb of the little finger"

    it wasn't an engagement ring when i first got it for her

    it was re-purposed because you know what

    it meant a lot to her, she doesn't wear a lot of jewelry in the first place, and the chances of me getting something for her that she liked better or meant more was highly unlikely

    so

    that's right

    i didn't just spend less than 1k on an engagement ring

    i basically just re-gifted an old ring i bought her

    fuck De Beers

    thinking about it some more it's all well and good for someone to like a ring or prefer a ring of a specific style

    but isn't the real excitement meant be your fiance proposing to you?

    I mean, are you really going to lament that the ring isn't your style when he's asking you to spend the rest of your life with him?

    now I understand that part of the thrill is your fiance knowing you well enough to get you something you'll like, that's fair enough

    but seriously

    who's REALLY going to let the look of a ring kill an emotional moment?
