Does the size of the ring really matter?

There’s a reality show that comes on Vh1 called “Love & Hip Hop” which features a host of  rappers and wannabe “celebrities” who expose their love life drama on national television. In one of the episodes, a proposal took place during a church service which ended in a disturbing way. The woman who was being proposed to refused to accept the ring because the diamond on the ring was extremely small. She then went on to joke about the size of the ring shortly after this man got down on one knee and expressed his never-ending love for this woman.


I’ve heard men and women express their thoughts and feelings about the size of the engagement ring from both sides of the argument. Some think the size of the ring does not matter because it is materialistic and it does not express the love they have for one another.They also mentioned they can always upgrade later on when they can afford something nicer. In opposition to that I’ve heard men & women say the size of the ring does matter and if they cannot propose with a decent size ring then they will wait until they can afford a nice ring. Some women are embarrassed to show their family & friends their engagement rings if they are small and will not admit their feelings because they do not want to hurt their fiancees feelings.

What are your thoughts?

    I am so anti-diamond rings, especially because many people die trying to find these things. Diamonds are overrated and I genuinely believe they breed materialism. I think a nice band is enough for me, I don’t need a diamond ring to show my love.

      Very true, I do believe diamonds are overrated but I would also like to have a nice engagement ring. 🙂

    I hope I do get a beautiful ring just because it is beautiful! But it in no way, shape or form determines love. A rich man can afford to buy all the diamonds in the world for people he barely cares about and a poor man can love you to the end of earth but not afford a ring. If you’re in love, it doesn’t matter.

  3. If the size of the ring matters that much, the person must not mean very much at all. Things are just things. It’s the size of the heart that you share that matters most.
