  • If you want to have peaceful days, it better be!
  • If you want her to know just how much she means to you...yes. It's difficult to tell the difference these days, but I think she would freak if you gave her a fake; she might change her mind!
  • Yes!!! If she found out the diamonds were fake she would feel devistated I'm sure.
  • It's nice if it can be, but some rings do not have stones at all, let alone a diamond, and are just as significant to the couple.
  • Depends on how real the woman.
  • I think it's up to the man and woman. Some women prefer diamonds, some other stones, some wouldn't care for stones at all.
  • It doesn't even need to have diamonds at all. Lots of people don't even bother with rings. I don't wear one and won't.
  • No. Stick to a budget and go into your marriage without having to worry about debt. Get her something nice, though. The marriage is about your relationship for life, not about her getting a piece of flashy jewelry to show off on her hand. Nice does not = expensive.
  • stones are not important...only the symbolism is...is it 3rd finger ,left hand? TAKEN,,,,i would not care if it was a fifty dollar gold band..yuk..i abhor materialism...
  • I would be happy with a 14K gold band with something nice engraved on the inside.
  • Rather than have fake stones I would prefer a plain gold ring. I like gold.
  • Matching bands are better... Had that diamond stuff..
  • Using cubic zirconia is kind of tacky. If you love someone, why would you immediately seek the cheapest ring available? Instead, you can compromise. You don't have to get a diamond. Why not buy a sapphire, emerald, or ruby ring with diamond accents? I know a young woman whose wedding ring was set with a pearl surrounded by small diamonds. It was lovely, classy, and unique.
  • I would want something with meaning. No particular stone or not particular look. Just something that represented more...:-)
  • tradition is...2 or 3 months salary...one ofe those cant remember, its been 14 years almost since I got one for my wife....seems like it worked.
  • give the lady a thin gold ring and let the gentleman go ringless. married by choice not because you cant get the ring off.
  • It depends on what the lady wants. I guess getting her a plain band would be better than getting yourself in debt over an expensive diamond ring. The ring symbolizes a promise of marriage; it's not a testament to money. If the diamond really matters to you, then you can save up and present her with the diamond ring later.
  • It doesn't matter what the ring is made of, it matters what the relationship is made of. Honestly.
  • if you want to promise to be real, make the diamonds real..
  • YES..simple as that
  • A synthetic could surely allow the eyes to bulge, as well
  • Diamonds are known for its endurance, strength and value. Diamonds are forever. Anything else is temporary. Even a small diamond is forever. She deserves at least that until you get more financially fit.
  • the key is honesty... do not get her moissanite (or worse CZ) and tell her they are diamonds... you are supposed to be ONE and that means your finances are shared and there are no secrets. please do not marry a girl stupid or shallow enough to buy that debeers propaganda... A diamonds are not forever, both your hammer, and your oven can destroy them (no it only takes ONE of them, not both together). you want something to represent endurance get a tungsten ring, if you break that you have some impressive tools. my wife's wedding ring is a silver band with a 14k rose god symbol on it... my own design (though I am sure other people have made it too, but I have never seen one.) $100 if a rock as common as quartz is that important to her then you are not.
  • Of course not.
  • If you are going for diamonds and it is an engagement ring, then yes. I would rather have a different stone anyway. Diamonds are not my favorites. Maybe she would like a different stone? Most cost less than diamonds.
  • It's a waste of money to buy another more than CZ.Nobody can tell whether it's CZ or a diamond.
  • Use a family heirloom. Then you can always ask for it back.
  • of course
  • No, but any stone that you choose should be genuine. You should care enough to get something nice for your intended, but it doesn't have to be expensive. Lots of people these days are getting engaged with sapphires. Pink sapphires are especially popular.
  • Unless it bothers you I dont see why It would matter!!
  • No, the man made stones are just as good. Nobody can tell the difference, unless look at it through a jeweler's loop.
  • Not necessary a ring can be of silver or gold and my philosophy is the thought which is counted and not the value .
  • If you can afford it sure, for me not necessary if we couldn't. My ring has diamonds in it because he chose it for me, as I did his. He tricked me a few months before, saying it was for fun. What mattered to me is that we had a baby together and he still wanted to marry me after all the crazy.
  • I buy these for my gf, the answer is no, i actually prefer perfection, these are real diamonds, they are just man made, they are perfect. The are not Cubic Zirconia or some other cheap made thing, they are real diamonds, yes we can make them now folks, they are quite amazing actually. http://www.apollodiamond.com/ http://www.gemesis.com/
  • Lets put it this way, if you need to impress people with fake diamonds there is something wrong with the relationship. Get an 18k gold wedding band and call it good Cheesy fake diamonds are tacky.
  • i dont think so
