Today, while shopping at American Eagle, I found the same "$1,500" wedding ring my fiancé proposed to me with, marked on sale for $10.95. FML

She must've been that gullible.

I'd be more mad that he lied about it, but no matter how un-materialistic we try to be it's nice to get expensive presents, it shows that the other person cares about you more than money.

YDI it's not all about the money

Well maybe he couldn't afford a real 1500 dollar ring, but would op have agreed to marry him if he said," Oh by the way, I got that for $15 at American eagle".

her finger would have turned green if it was a 10.95 ring from AE

140; not totally.. your finger turns green from cheap metal because the metal is reacting with a person's skin. it may not turn OP's skin green..

I don't think it's necessarily because the ring is cheap, it's the fact he lied. Also, it's an engagement ring which is special so you would hope that your fiancé would try to buy something a little more than 10.95. I would rather my man ask to marry me then wait and save up for a ring together.

he probably splurged at GameStop, before forgetting what he really went to the mall for, stepped inside AE and thought "this will do, and I still have enough for a churro." Seriously OP, give the ring back and keep your options open, you sound too young to be engaged anyway

ya for real, u can tell real jewelry from fake?

174- lmao that sounds like something my brother would do... I think it's the thought that counts op should just forgive him, who cares if it was cheap that's just more money saved for your future.

it could be a fake replica cause once I found a ring at a jewelers for 1200 and I looked on the net for cheaper price I found a replica for about 300 when it said cubic z instead of awesome diamonds the jewelers had I lol'd

looks like some one went bargin shopping ...

maybe it was one based on your real ring?

Usually someone can tell the difference between a $1500 piece of jewelry and one that costed $10.95 lol, I digress. I have heard 2-3 months salary is the "norm" to spend on a ring though.

You heard that from the jeweler industry. Buy whatever works for you and your mate.

the rings at AE are cheap rip offs of the high end rings at other stores. the ring he got you is probably real and you saw the cheap look-a-like in AE. hopfully.

If it makes you feel better I thought it was funny...

missy_lynn012 0

I see what you were TRYING to do there...buuuuut you failed(miserably).

that's what I was thinking about the discount

do the fog test, fog the ring up and she if it stays foggy, if it does it's not a diamond

she's probably the biotch cause apparently she didn't reserve a real ring ydi.

ur an insensitive bitch, i hope karma gets u.

I agree. If or when I get proposed to by my partner, I wouldn't want her to spend a lot of money on my ring. I would much prefer if she got me a hundred or so dollar ring (not too much more) then take me out for dinner, or use the money for our house/bills. same with our wedding dresses. why spend thousands for a dress you will put on once?

It's not about saving money. The fact that the fiancé lied about the ring is the worst part of this. Personally, I don't know how OP failed to tell the difference between a $1,500 ring and an AE bauble but that's just me. If you agree on a cheap ring, fine. But starting your engagement with a lie is just bad form.

missy_lynn012 0

at 62 I understand about not wanting to buy an expensive dress but a ring is something you wear for the rest of your life (at least for most people)...I wouldn't want to wear something that's going to turn my finger green...the thing you wear for the rest of your life should be of value.

hey 79 stfu people are poor and cant afford anything soo.. he at least tried to make her happy... ydi for being an ungrateful bICh and cant be happy with a stupid $10 ring... at least u have love!!!

146 it is about the lie not the ring, idiot.

MizzErikaHart 8

if it were me, it would be about the ring 

#146, I would tell you to STFU but I doubt you'd understand since you clearly have no reading comprehension skills. Did I in any way hint that exorbitant sums should be spent on the ring? I wouldn't have cared if my husband proposed with a Ring Pop as long as he didn't paint the damn thing and tried to pass it off as the Kohinoor. Honesty is the key. OP was misled and that is wrong. Her fiancé should've been honest about his inability or unwillingness to buy a more expensive ring.

Well, 181, you're just a superficial bitch, aren't you?

dheinzen2 1

guys fall I love with what they see and girls fall in love with what they here, that's why girls wear push up bras and why guys lie

The lie is a big issue I'm sure, but a $10.95 ring even on sale is really cheap for something that's supposed to last for the rest of your life. You can't arbitrarily put the right amount that should be spent on a ring as I've spent more on rings for my current and ex-girlfriends "just because" and I've also asked a girl out using a ring pop.

jane79 0

and the ring can be real gold and diamonds u can get a nice ring at walmart or even on line for a few hundred dollars even can go to pawn shop and get a nice ring so if your going to propose to a girl and can't afford much don't lie about it but don't be so cheap find something you can afford and make the diamond real

people- the main thing is that the guy lied

181 - Erika, of course it would be about the ring. You've demonstrated your superficiality many times over on this site. I feel bad for the man who can't afford a $2000 ring for you; he'll still have the thought and still love you, but it won't even be enough for you because nothing shows how much a man loves you except for the size of the ring on your left ring finger. If my boyfriend proposed with a $10.95 ring, I wouldn't care. A pretty ring is a pretty ring; a proposal from the man I love is still a proposal.

xJordieeBearhhx 0

I totally agree with this, 1500 or 10.95, he loves you enough to propose. isn't that enough for you?

who is OP??!!?? I keep hearing it but it makes no sense!!!!

You don't NEED a ring to propose. It's just a stupid tradition people follow so you should be glad you got anything I'd he's that cheap.

87 - it's meant to be of value to the wearer. it doesn't have to be of monetary value. seriously. how ridiculous.

the ring is called the Cheep ring how the hell is it a brand name there is a phere of pants dad more then that....****

Allow me to translate for you. I understand how impossible it is to read anything written in tongues, damn kids.... "That ring appears to be of fairly low cost, how can that possibly be a brand name item? I've had the chance to purchase a pair of denim jeans which happened to cost more than the ring you've received, expletive! Also, I suck cocks."

"Expletive" you are "expletive" awesome. now I understand.

thx for the translation nice

australian and Vietnamese that's rare :)

^^Hahahaha! Perfect translation(:

A brand name for casual clothes, not for wedding rings. He probably could've found a nicer one at walmart.

marktucci 0

Hey girl looking good! got any more pics?

a brand name yes. a horrible brand, yes as well.

spartanfan68 0

ouch. that sucks real bad op...maybe it just looks like the one he got you! but at least your engaged! treat it like one of those sappy movies where the guy has no money to buy the girl a ring but she loves him so much she doesn't care...if it really is an AE ring. Who cares what it is, your with who you supposedly love! :)

materialistic? it's ****** 10.95...that's a shitty ass ring dude

I didn't say anything about being materialistic...where is the word in my comment? I don't see it... I do think it's cheap though, but it shouldn't matter that much.

I'd be pissed. Not at the price of the ring but that he was too chicken to tell the truth.

ucofresh 4

I'll be honest.. I'd be pissed at the fact it was 10.95 and it was from AE! I mean cmon.. Call me materialistic or what the hell ever. a wedding is important.. if you can't spend more than 11 bucks then you're not quite ready for marriage.

BugsBunny1 4

So you're saying if the ring cost 6 cents more, you'd be happy.

he's got u there. guess he's just preparing for the long road ahead lol

136, OPs husband most likly payed sales tax on the ring, making it cost more then 11 dollars :P

dank1 0

You guys dont get it op's fiance did pay more for the ring because when op saw it the ring was on sale but who knows if the ringwasnt on sale when op's bf bought it? maybe he paid 20 for it haha(:

Lol bugsbunny you mean 5 cents more? I'm no mathematician but 10.95 plus 6 is not 11.00 in fact it is 11.01 but 10.95 plus 5 is 11.00. just saying.

BugsBunny1 4

Yes the math is right. Yes I meant 6 cents. He said MORE than $11 and $11.01 IS more than $11.

I would be pissed too, but it is what it is. If you really love someone you should be able to overlook it. it might not even be the same one, they just might look a lot alike. but I see where all of you are coming from.

Maybe it's because OP was told it was a $1500 ring. My 2cents.

a ring is a ring, as long as she likes it, and by the sounds of it she did like it when she thought it was expensive

jbluebird923 0

I think it was just the fact that he lied to her and told her it was a $1500 ring. lying is never good...

gilleamb000 0

he lied to her. who would spend $10 on a wedding ring that's just terrible. I'm sure he bought an xbox or something for himself on the way home (I watch too much teen mom )

^ which one on the show bought an xbox?
