Either he's trying to cover up the fact of him being greedy ass or he's just trying to seem original.

I don't think it should matter what the ring is. girls do take cheap rings from walmart or where ever. it's the thought of the ring on your on your finger. not the type. be happy you have him

hahaha 26, pulling a homer! I think that's actually really funny and I would say yes! diamonds are over rated. ydi op for not being appreciative that he's even considering marrying you!

dump him. he's going to have excuses/rationalizations for everything. could have gotten a CZ if it was a money issue for the same price if he wasn't a douchebag...

r u talking about a little black speck in the ring?? cause there are different stages of diamonds and a lot of them do have those black specks in them being that it's where it comes from, some are more noticeable than others and those are the less expensive diamonds, but a diamond none the less... he would have to get a flawless diamond tell him to go to Kay and get the hearts on fire ha

260- if she really loved him unconditionally then a ring wouldn't matter, his simple gesture and marriage alone should be enough to prove he loves her, a material object shouldn't have to symbolize their love...

272 that wld be tru if no ring was given at all. i think she is upset is bc he put graphite in it. and his reasoning behind. i dont think she wld be upset if he said i wanna marry u but dont hav the money for a ring. if she wld be then thats ungrateful and gold diggerish

She shouldn't be deemed a gold digger just because she wants a traditional diamond. Anyone who says "just be happy you have him" is dumb. No one should settle for less than what they want ever.

I honestly think op should get over it. the fact he wants to marry your selfish ass should be enough. have you even seen what our economy is like lately? your lucky the graphite was mounted on a real ring.

thing is most people would take this gesture as a sign of cheapness. also the guy said that he didnt get her a nice ring because theyre both carbon and not because he thinks that love should not be defined by a ring. its easy for people to say they wouldnt care for a graffite ring but no one would ever be happy if their fiance decided to not scrape the barrel for a lifetime commitment and if you say otherwise then youre lying and also talk is cheap.

oh yea in addition to my previous comment because people are gonna pull bs that this whole situation should be about their love, the op should say yes anyways if everything else about the guy is good and she loves him. but also everyone who thinks shes a golddigger because she didnt like the fact that the guy was inconsiderate and didnt wanna pay for a diamond ring are probably extremely naive. practically no ones so unshallow they wouldnt be hurt from this incident and no one can say shit till this happens to them

you people are annoying. not having money for a diamond doesn't make him an inconsiderate ass. it makes him a man who loves and wants to marry his girl. guess what? I'm not expecting a big rock. I'll take whatever, financial smartness is hot :)

wow you really bought all that de beers marketing crap hook line and sinker. you do realize diamonds are worthless right ? try to sell one sometime. somewhere other then craigslist. ( Although de beers is going after people on craigslist now, that might be fun. )

ummm they are the same thing. just add 15000x more pressure to the graphite and millions of years and you got yourself a diamond. girls seem to think that diamonds are so easy to come by. they take about 1.5 million years to even begin to form.

While you are correct that it is just a material symbol, I can sympathize with her wanting something more traditional. She is not a gold digger, or materialistic. Just traditional.

^ I'm a smart ass too  i gave my gf a lunch box for christmas with a bag of onion rings inside, she had been hinting for a "ring" I told her she can't complain since she could have her choice that way.

^that's funny haha And seriously. OP is being freaking selfish! Be happy you're getting a ring at all! If you're going to whine SO much that you even put it on FML you don't exactly deserve him. Times are tough and not everyone can afford a diamond ring!

how is that an excuse to say no? if they both love eachother the ring doesn't matter. some of you need to think about the fact that maybe he didn't have a lot of money to buy a fancy big ass diamond ring. it's the thought that counts and if she loves him it doesn't matter.

When my husband proposed to me it was with a ring that had 3 white saphires instead of diamonds. I loved it because he wasn't being cheap, he had gone to my grandpa (who mines his own stones in Cambodia and has the stones cut and set in rings.) and picked out the ring he thought I would like best and bought it. It means a lot to me for many reasons. Rings don't have to be diamond rings to be special. Diamond wedding rings only became popular because of a well known and popular department store marketing them, years ago. I do draw the line at getting a ring because it's cheap if you think your fiancee prefers something else. The bragging about the cheapness of your knockoff...
