Engagement Ring or Wedding Band...

(For girls ) tell me please:
What brand is your most wanted for engagement ring?
how much (or how big the diamond) is your ring?

no diamonds, pure platinum, total 4.3k.

bought 9+ yrs ago.

Diamond means nothing these days..

If budget is not a concern...name brand like tiffany/cartier/burks..and of course bigger than better la...hahaha
But if I were to choose, I prefer stone w/ good quality instead of large amount goes to the brand name.

wedding band seldom has diamond (or at least no big ones).
For engagement rings, I guess it's more important with the 4Cs if you are talking about the diamonds on them.
I am surprised that you mention the brand name first. IMO it's the least concern to most girls. You can have a tiffany style set engagement ring (i.e. simple band with just the diamond) but is that important to have a ring actually from Tiffany? I don't know. Most girls won't want that if the trade off is to get a much smaller stone.

To me, diamond isn't important. The wedding band means a lot more than the engagement ring. And if any diamond is involved, it's better not to be any "blood diamond". May be Canadian or Australian ones are ok.

I really don't think brand name is important for engagement rings; Most people would only ask how big is the diamond rather than "is this tiffany/cartier?". To me, the most important thing about diamond rings is the 4C's. I'm very glad that my finace didn't get me tiffany/cartier rings because for the amount of money you spend on those brand name rings you could have gotten much much nicer and bigger diamonds. The markup for those brand names is crazy. Sometimes it maybe even better to get it custom made -- it's more unique and perhaps the design will mean something to you.

Don't forget that you might spend a lot of money on your wedding (photographer/reception/food/decor/honeymoon); So people may need to buy a place to live too. That's another big expense. It's sooo easy to go over budget when planning a wedding. So is it really worth it in the end to get a brand name ring when you can put the money towards other things in your wedding? It's really up to you on where you want to spend the money.

Totally Agree with you.. I was just watching tv yesterday with my bf,  "Slice" rich bride poor bride, and we found it's funny when ppl getting marry they all fighting over the wedding dress, ring, venue for party...etc..

Then all the sudden, my bf asked me what brand and size u want for the ring...
and coz i know nth about it, so i wanna ask how everyone thinks..

The reality is, not too many people can tell the design and brand of your ring right away by the first glance; but they can tell if it's bigger than 1CT or smaller than 0.5CT, and if it's in sparking white or dull yellowish!
But hey, the size of the diamond doesn't necessary proportional to the love your man loves you!

Very true! But into more detail, "it's not about how much money you are willing to spend in one day (the wedding day), it's the amount you are willing to spend in my whole life (marriage life)"! Hahaha.......... LOL

It's normal for someone who just starts looking at diamond will focus on the brands. If you ask me I love Harry Winston and Tacori over Tiffany's and Cartier.

For Tiffany's one thing it's good you have a 1 time upgrade option, let's say you have spent 5K on your e-ring (considerably pretty tiny stone in Tiffany's, couple years after if you want something bigger, as long as your new stone values more than a double (>10K). Tiffany's can take your old stone back and still give you back the value to put back to the new stone.
