The moment every man looks forward to is going down on one knee to propose to the woman of his dreams and the moment every lady looks forward to is seeing her man go down on one knee to propose to her. It’s magic and special for both men and women.
When proposing to a lady, should the size of the rock and price matter? Is there supposed to be a certain size of rock and price range to choose from when getting an engagement ring?
I have read so many stories where the size and price of the rock was a big problem. A particular story caught my attention. The story of a lady accepting her man’s proposal but refusing to wear the ring because she felt the rock was just too small and that wasn’t the rock of her dreams.
I observed that most ladies have a certain type of rock they would want their man to get them and would feel disappointed if he doesn’t get them such rings when proposing to them. I have even heard ladies say they expect their man to spend at least 10% of his annual income on a ring.
It seems to me that the size and price of an engagement ring symbolizes the size of his love to most ladies but is it really right? Is it really right that a man spends 10% of his annual income getting his lady an engagement ring?
I honestly believe the mentality of insisting on a certain size and price of an engagement ring is wrong. What I think should matter is the gesture and not the price or size of the rock. Love is shown by actions and not the price of an engagement ring.
I think it’s wrong for ladies to let his inability to get her a certain engagement ring cloud her judgment of his ability to love and care for her.
I understand every lady wants an engagement ring that they can show off with pride but you shouldn’t wreck your man’s income just because you want to wear a certain engagement ring.
I believe when shopping for an engagement ring, the man should pay attention to the quality of the ring, not just the price tag. While it’s nice to get a lady a good engagement ring that she would love, purchasing an engagement ring should not be done without financial considerations.
I believe this mentality of wearing a certain type of engagement ring is something Hollywood sold to us and the women seem to like it because it allows them to be accepted or praised socially for a short period of time.
I would end this article by saying that its the gesture that should matter to a woman and not the size or price of the ring. Be happy about your engagement whether it’s a big or small rock.
