The ring itself does not matter it's the meaning of the ring that matters.
I have had similar criticism with my Wedding ring. Chris brought me a gorgeous engagment ring which cost a small fortune.
I was trying on my Wedding bands and for some shocking reason the ones the orange sales suit was saying 'went' all cost around £600 - £800.
I found another one for £200 which apparently was not suitable and didn't go (honestly they all looked pretty much the same to me). I thought it would be very stupid to have over £2000 of jewellery on one finger especially seeing as I have already scuffed my engagement rings from where I use to smack my magnet against the wall to get through corridors.
I was so pissed off by the whole thing I went to argos and brought one for £12.99. I love it to bits and it goes really well with my engagement ring.
Those who know the value of my Wedding band are always making comments, but at the end of the day we saved £700 which will be put to much better use elsewhere. Those who do not know how much my ring would have no idea of the value.
At the end of the day it's the meaning that is important not the value or style.
I wear my £12.99 ring with pride
P.S Craig that was soo sweet. I like the way Slev from the forums proposed to his future wife (I'm getting all soppy now)
