    How much would you be prepared to spend on an engagement ring? :o:

    Would you want your boyfriend to wear one as well? (girls)

    Boys would you be prepared to wear one?

    Ha, no. Certainly not. I won't wear a wedding ring either.

    It's supposed to be 3 month's salary you spend I think.

    I'm hoping that I'll be engaged to a man who can afford the type of ring I like. Lol.

    I can't say I've heard of many men wearing an 'engagement' type ring, though I do like the idea of it - obviously not a diamond ring, but something to signify the engagement might be interesting.

    I can't tell the difference between a cheap ring and an expensive ring.

    ...maybe 'my-other-half' should be taking note.

    I don't care how much my guy spends as long as the ring doesn't *look* cheap.

    If he *wanted* to wear one I wouldn't mind, but it's not really conventional so I wouldn't mind if he didn't either :p: I might mind if he refused to wear a wedding ring though.

    I would never marry a guy who wasn't willing to spend at least £50k on a ring. :no:


    Or, alternatively, something pretty that he chose himself. :^_^:

    It's really cheap, but I like this one. I though it was supposed to be one month's salary.

    How much is that one then?

    I'm the same as flushthesystem, I dont think I could tell the difference between an expensive or a cheap ring.

    I've seen loads of rings that are less than £200 but to me still look really nice lol.

    Heres you lot going on about the price of an engagement ring and me thinking that its what it symbolises is far more improtant than the price!....I wouldnt have cared if my engagement ring had been off a coke can to be honest. . Mine wasnt expensive at all. My husband doesnt wear a wedding ring as he hates jewelry.

    A month's salary, and it had better look damn good I wouldn't expect him to wear one, but I would expect him to wear a wedding ring.

    £150

    As to those that say it's a symbol of your love, I guess it's something you wear for the rest of your life and so I'd want it to be good quality.

    Anything from tiffany's and co or a diamond which is 1 carat or more is good for me. My future boyfriend will know exactly what i want because I spend a lot of time looking at the tiffany and co website and diamond rings.

    There's more to good jewellery than Tiffany's...I don't understand why people get these obsessions with one brand...
