Woman complains her $2500 engagement ring isn't worth enough

A woman's post on Mumsnet has seen her receive a huge amount of backlash after claiming her engagement ring isn't worth enough.

"*My darling partner* proposed and presented me with the ring he’d chosen – a diamond solitaire in white gold." Her post began.

"I was so happy and excited to accept but was disappointed when I first saw the ring. The first word that entered my head was ‘small’. There’s nothing to dislike about the type of ring per se, as a diamond solitaire would have been my choice, but it’s the whole thing – the colour of the gold, the setting, the small stone and relatively chunky shoulders."

"His salary is nearing a 6 figure sum and he’s usually very generous. Having seen the receipt I know he paid *$2500 NZD* for it – which is a lot less than I would have imagined he would have spent on such a significant piece of jewellery."

"Ideally I would have loved for us to have chosen a ring together and made a special day finding one we both liked."

"As it’s something I’ll be wearing every day and is such a special piece of jewellery I wanted to really love it and I just don’t."

It didn't take long for the responses to come pouring in...

"Blimey. I’d have been delighted; talk about being ungrateful, the person at work is 100% right." wrote one person.


"What do you want? Do you want to marry him or do you want a big ****** ring?" asked another.

But some were a bit more constructive, "If I were you I wouldn’t mention the cost or the size of the stone – just stick with the fact that it’s not your style (the gold and the shoulders). You know best how to communicate with him, so he can understand and you can go off and shop together.

Do you think it's fair for the fiance to be picky about the ring?
