Just like how you will have a minimum standard as to what to wear to suntec, there should also be a minimum standard as to what you should get when proposing to your gf. You don't have to buy a 100k ring but should be a reasonable size, color, clarity and whatever other c there is....

    You might also want to go further to add...how will she explain to her friends and family why she choose you over some other better guys that is there for the picking. Would you want her to defend you...her choice ...over what others have to say about it?

    If a woman give in to that kind of notion and would cave-in and be made to feel bad that she is not wearing a diamond ring after she is married...well...what else would she succumb to at the mercy of other's comments and hearsay. It will not stop at just the ring comparison don't you think? A relationship is about two person no? What you can afford to give or not give...if you two love each other that much to get married and make a life togeher....why should the size of the rock be that important.

    Another thing....I don't often see lots of married ladies at work and in social event spotting diamond rings. Wedding gold bands yes but rarely a diamond one.

    Anyway...no right or wrong...just choices we make and will have to live with.

    Same i also feel this way but now is not the right time buying gold seeing the how high is the price right now.

    But then again, who wears gold nowadays (Probably not for the chinese), mostly going for white gold instead..

    well, i wonder if you're attached or getting married soon or something,

    most girls I know do expect something from their bfs, some are more realistic, some are not. the 3X monthly pay is just a guideline. I know a lady friend who insists on not getting a diamond ring for engagement, kudos to her bf...

    for myself, i proposed when i was still a student, so whatever X monthly pay...it's not going to hit the roof right? so I always tell pple to propose asap....so that it's 'cheaper'!

    I like your saying "... so I always tell pple to propose asap....so that it's 'cheaper'!"

    Anyway it is a matter of how much she is worth to you. The price/size of the diamond is just a symbol. Buy something you can afford I believe if she loves you, she'd understand your plight. Dun forget the 'upgrading factor' later on... if you buy her a 1.0carat now for proposal, then wedding anniversary? Birthday? when she give you your first child?

    So my advise, get something you can afford with sustainable value for now then promise her an upgrade later. Rather then almost drowning yourself for the piece of rock now and no future to it.

    i think the moment you start talking about "worth" and "women" in the same breath, there's already a problem

    I still remember a something that my chemistry teacher (a female by the way) taught me 20 years ago - "Diamonds are not forever".

    After all, they are carbon with different iostope/molecular structure & would revert back to carbon in a few thousand years.

    One thing's for sure, try saying that to your woman at your own risk.
