Were not rich,any ideas on an engagement ring?

Me and my boyfriend of over 2yrs have a beautiful little boy 8 months old. We always talked about marriage just never had money for a ring. I think a promise ring is cute for an engagement ring and there only about 200 dollars.Any other ideas on a cheap engagement ring meaning under 500?

  • My engagement ring is a beautiful white gold star sapphire :). It wasn't much more than 200 dollars and DH bought a beautiful necklace that went with it. I got both when he proposed. :) I don't like diamonds, so getting them was out of the question. this is similar to my ring, but my ring is an oval not a heart! The heart necklace on the same page, star saphire heart, is what he gave me with it :)

  • I never had an engagement ring. Is one really necessary? If so, how about a birthstone ring?

  • Try Walmart. If nothing else it will work for now. He can get you a better one when you are better off.

  • They even have jewlery departments at Wal Mart and K-Mart, so I bet you can find something acceptable and inexpensive.

  • there is nothing TRASHY about spending only what you can afford! Have you thought about opening up an account somewhere and making payments on a ring if it means that much to you??

  • If you really want a ring, I say just get a simple silver band for now until you can afford one. After all it's really not about the ring. Thats what my fiance and I did, we just have simple bands for now. You can find them cheap at Kmart.
