Engagement rings and keeping her safe...how much should I spend?


Recommended Posts

I would like her to have something nice but worried she could get robbed or hurt if I bought something to expensive. She is not  materialistic but most all women want one...thoughts? We live in the city not the province.

I do not think the average thief knows the value of a ring. Buy her something that shows you care and stop worrying about being robbed. 

She can rotate the ring so it just looks like a band, with the setting faced toward the palm of her hand, while in town shopping, etc.    Just a thought.

my wife and i wear my parents rings.. they mean a lot to us .. far more then they are worth monetarily   my Dad had passed away before we got married but both him and my Mom had talked about this be

My wife never wore hers in Cebu, too dangerous - just buy her what you feel like buying her and accept that she can't wear it until you are somewhere else.

You should buy two. A small one for everyday use and a big one for special occasions.

 

I'm good at spending other people's money!

Get a good one as you can afford and get a cheaper one too. Good one for special/safe occasions and the other reminder for no so safe occasions.

My wife's friend has a huge diamond- about 3 or 4 carats.  She paid 400 pesos for it.

 

I only bought my wife a little one - and it cost under 100K  . Just call me kuriput

My wife never wanted an engagement ring. She loves jewelry and good gold and is not really worried about getting robed, but then she carries a gun.
