Yes!!!! I purposely told DH to make sure it was small at first (we conceived my daughter on our engagement night LOL and found out a few weeks later) and get me a bigger one later. So one day I'll get a nice big one. :)

We wear solid wedding bands, no diamonds or any other stones for that matter. Just white gold.

Wow.  Well, no, it wouldn't have to be big or even a diamond.  I was just thinking last week I'd rather have an emerald or something.  But I would never do what your friend did.

wow she sounds like a spoiled brat and if I were him I would have told her to go pay for it herself.  Why would she marry a guy who cant afford her lifestyle?

I proposed to my dh with no ring, but months before he had given me a steel ring he wears that saved his hand with a pallet he was working on collapsed. I wear it on a chain and consoder it my engagement ring. I know of two previous gf's that wanted that ring.

We decided to get married on a Wednesday night and got married the next morning. No rings at all. In fact, we went shopping a few weeks later and put our rings on lay-a-way and finally got them out two kids and 3 1/2 years later! My set is a total of 1 carat and is good enough for me! I always told my dh that he just had to buy me a REAL diamond before he died, but if he was taken from me before he had the chance then I'd just use his life insurance money!

Your friend should have been happy with what she received. It is the thought that counts and she was just down right rude!
