Which would you rather have...

A big expensive engagement ring or a smaller ring and the cash for "other" gifts? I was at a store yesterday and a lady was saying I prefer a smaller ring and the cash or a vacation! Another said no way I want to drag my hand because my ring is so big lol! Tell me ladies which would you prefer?

  • Practically I would like to say that I would prefer the smaller ring and extra cash but after having the smaller ring. I know inside I would prefer something bigger. Not out of this world big but something biggere.

  • I think really big rings look gawdy- so I'd say small ring & vacation! (2nd honeymoon?!)

  • I think it is ridiculous about how much people are willing to spend on rings. Buy a smaller one and save the money for other things.

  • I would rather have the smaller ring the large rings look fake sometimes anyway and they get in the way of things

  • Anyone who wants a big ol' diamond hasn't had much experience with kids. I can't wear my ring and its not even that big (.8 carat) because its constantly getting snagged when I try to dress my son, or scratches him when I chase him down to change his diaper or wipe his nose, It gets yogurt and mashed up bananas stuck all over it, etc. I wear a $7 band from the JCPenney clearance table.

  • I have a decent sized engagement and wedding ring. My husband used the money left over to help us starting building our house. I think it was wise to use the money for other things.
