Is an engagement ring/wedding ring really that important to you?

My engagement ring and wedding ring was inexpensive, but nice.  My friend told me that if her boyfriend proposed and her ring was "cheap" like mine, she would refuse to marry him.  I am not getting married for the price of a ring (both rings together cost less than $500).  Would the ring a guy proposed with or gave you on your wedding day be your deciding factor on whether or not you would marry the person?

Well it is important to me but everyone is different.

 No, but then I'm not a entitled brat. Although my rings aren't cheap, I would have still married him if he had shaped tinfoil and put it on my finger.

Not at all. I am not a jewelry person really. Right now I just wear an infinity ring as my wedding band. I lost the main diamond on my anniversary ring and broke my original wedding band.

I think having *A* ring as a status symbol to say "I'm married" is what matters. A $500 Walmart set doesn't make you less in love vs a $50,000 fancy set.

 I didn't want a ring, I have one, but I rarely wear it.  It gets in the way.

NO. But I'm not most women. My husband and I don't even wear our rings. I mainly don't wear mine because I'm afraid of losing it. I don't wear any jewerly whatsoever so when I wear my ring, I'm constantly playing with it and taking it off and on.

My ring only cost like $200 and I thought that was too much. I feel like the more expensive the ring and the more expensive the wedding, the more likely a divorce is going to happen down the line. It's just starting to seem that way now.

No not really. My husband got my rings from a pawn shop. He paid less than $200 for a set that probably cost $500 new.

I would care that he bought me a ring he could afford.  If he was wealthy and bought me a cheapo ring - no way.  Also, to me, no ring means no engagement.

No its the thought that counts. I would have married him either way yet he did a very good job.
