Its not the price of the ring that matters...

I understand that when your boyfriend proposes it is magical no matter what. This subject came up between me and my SO, He stated they guys tend to "show off" when they buy a ring for their women. I said it shouldnt matter, so for case winning purposes. How much did your SO spend on your engagement ring?

  • $8500, but it really wouldn't have mattered to me how much he spent - I didn't think he was going to spend that much!

  • He bought my engagement ring and wedding band as a set, and it was about $1,000.

    I do agree that it shouldn't matter! It's a symbol of something much more, after all.

  • We spent $300.00 on a 3 ring set that included our wedding bands plus my engagement ring :) We love our rings and after 8 years have no plans to replace them :)

  • No clue. I didn't ask because I really didn't care. It was sparkly and given to me.

  • Around a $100 I think. I found the receipt one day while cleaning out his wallet for him. He forgot he left it in there. LOL!

    I think too many women demand these ugly expensive rings and guys (the poor schmucks) have fallen into the trap of the ring having to cost more than a freaking car or it isn't good enough. It is being given out of love! It's not about the price!!

    Sorry ... mini rant over.

  • my husband got me a promise ring before he got me a real engagement ring. i told it was fine to use the promise ring as an engagement ring but he kept saying that i deserve a real ring (hey why argue right?). the promise ring was like... $300 and the engagement ring that he ended up getting me was $700.. sigh.. why are guys so hard headed? lol

  • About 1,000 after the lifetime warranty and everything. I love it.

  • We were never engaged...we eloped. So no engagement ring. We spent $80 on our bands. I wouldn't of had it any other way.
