I recently bought my fiance's ring. It is a titanium band with a gold inlay. I found it on ebay for 20 bucks.
My mother is pissed off because I didnt go spend 5-6 hundred bucks on the same band at a jewelry store. Saying I am cheep and she feels bad for my fiance because I didnt buy him a "real" ring.
My fiance is tough on jewelry. I mean really tough. Every gold ring he has save one that I wear around my neck on a chain has had to be cut off his hand. He wanted a titanium band because they are tough. I was the one that insisted it have gold on it.
We went to jewelry stores and found bands we liked that were more expensive than my engagement band, and that puppy was over $1,000 bucks! And we went online and found the same bands for ALOT less.
Am I cheep for buying him exactly what he wants for alot less?
And what do I say to a momzilla of the bride who insists that the ring is fake when it is confirmed real by jewelers and by every test able to check it is real save taking a grinder to it.
