My mom gave me her engagement ring when her marriage went sour. That is about it.
I noticed some stories in this group that shocked me, women saying, "It's not what I wanted" Then, I thought, if I EVER get an engagement ring, I would be so thrilled it wouldn't matter if it came from Wal-Mart or where. I can understand getting stuck with a ring you don't like and being upset, though. You do have to wear it everyday for the rest of all time. For instance, I hate yellow gold. Other than that, I'm not picky. I don't care how much it cost or the size of the diamond, or even if it is CZ.. I would actually prefer pink stones... I just don't care.
