one of these is diamond, one is cubic zirconia. Can you tell them apart? Will some sloot be able to tell them apart when they're in a setting? doubtful unless she found some well-trained gemologist to examine it out of the setting with a loupe.
i lol @ my friends who spend $8k on engagement rings (they make around $30-40k a year). I make 60k+ depending how much I work and I would spend maybe $1k on a ring. All on the setting.
my brother dgaf - got his wife an aquamarine. obviously not a diamond, but tarded bishes still ask my sister in law if it was diamond.
not getting married anytime soon but just sayin'

Why even buy a ring? The tradition of a diamond ring is because it lasts forever. Zirconium doesn't last forever so cough up or don't even bother. srs. Don't half-ass anything in life son
or if your wife doesn't give a fuk go ahead and be cheap but people will judge you if they find out srs mane*Feels suicidal when pump goes away crew*

Wedding and engagement rings are stupid. It's an infantile pissing match, which is why having a fake diamond is not acceptable if you are going to participate in the culture of wedding rings.
It's unfortunate that it's socially acceptable for woman to be brain washed by needless consumerism and entitlement when it comes to weddings.

Funny enough I agree with you OP... I think that the massive amount of money people spend on engagement rings/diamonds is so insane. Save that money for something important. The beginings of a down payment on a house... Something that matters. Not some rock...
I have a SMALL diamond ring (That I was happy to get) that cost like $300 and I still think that was to much... It is a freaking piece of carbon...Starting weight- May 14 2011- 184
Current weight- 136

Because the ring is symbolic of the love you share with your partner, and a diamond happens to be a big part of the ring.
If you use something fake, such as a CZ to symbolise the love between you and your partner, what does that say about the relationship?
Sure, love should be bigger than materials, but this is a view from the traditional sense.

The whole "you should spend loads of money" on a diamond engagement ring thing is a load of BS and actually a creation of the De Beers diamond corporation, they invented the phrase "diamonds are forever" as a marketing slogan and only mine/refine a certain quantity of diamonds a year in order to make them appear more rare and valuable to drive prices up. Srs look it up.
