I didn't want a diamond engagement ring at all (or any engagement ring) but he did get me a big black diamond that I keep around my neck. It doesn't matter to me what it's made out of. It is just annoying when you tell people you're getting married and all they want to see is the diamond ring. *rollseyes*

(Edited He to he...."He" didn't get me a black diamond )

I'm kind of snobby in the way that I wanted a smaller, real diamond rather than a fake larger one.

Our wedding bands are made out of whitetail antler, and my engagement ring (which I got a week before our wedding lol) is technically a promise ring, I think? I love it though, and wouldn't want anything bigger. The ONLY thing I would change, is that the corners are very, very sharp.

Here it is! Only mine is a white gold band.


Antler wedding bands. Josh has been through.. four now?

I for sure wanted a diamond on my engagement ring, not cubic zirconia or similar, but I honestly don't care if it was lab created or not. There are so many issues with diamond mining in various parts of the world that I'd almost prefer lab created tbh.

My engagement ring is actually a sapphire off set by two teeny diamonds, but it's perfect.

My wedding band is stainless steel, DH's is titanium iirc.

I would completely okay with lab-created gemstones, and I agree with the sentiment that a wedding ring is symbolic. I would rather receive something custom made that suits my personality, his, and our particular relationship, than a gold-and-diamond Wedding Band marketed as such. titanium and hematite, or something. probably. that would be a lovely ring, dark and unique and beautiful.

No, I wouldn't care as long as he wasn't trying to pass it off as something it wasn't.

But really I never wanted anything with a huge stone in it and I rarely wear my rings anyway and I DEFINITELY did not want a huge sum of money dropped on a ring. I'd rather he propose with a down payment on a house LOL

It wouldn't matter to me at all. (I actually don't care for stones on rings at all, my wedding band doesn't have any and I didn't really have an engagement ring.)

I might would prefer a lab created one. Honestly I just would want something simple and understated and practical. If youre going to spend thousands of dollars do it on something more useful than a Ring. I do think I'd want a 'clear' stone like a diamond because the others just don't look wedding ring to me.

I would want a diamond (versus a "knock off" non-diamond). But I wouldn't care if it was lab grown or "real". It's still a diamond in my book!

Same here!

My engagement ring and wedding band are both white gold with diamonds. Having the rings were important to me, and I wouldn't have wanted fake diamonds.

I really wouldn't care. If someone loves me enough to marry me, and I love them enough to marry them, I know that they would get me a diamond if they could afford one and if they can't, that's fine. I don't care. I'd love a diamond, but honestly, a ring out of a $.25 machine is just as sweet to me. But of course it depends on the intentions. Which like I'd said depends on the man, and if I say yes to someone, they're going to be someone that I trust and love.
