Lifestyle: Q&A



In a world of huge engagements rings, does the size of the rock really matter? The everyday woman may not receive an 8ct engagement ring how ever if your spouse bought a ring and it wasn't your dream ring would it really matter? I read an article today about youtube vlogger Jen Phanomrat who recently got engaged to her beau Leo Samanamud. The couple have a popular YouTube vlog entitled "Just Eat Life". Apparently after almost 9 years of courting the two got engaged and the couple posted a picture to their social media to announce their recent engagement. The size of Jen's ring seems to have a lot of peoples panties in a bunch (picture below). 

Can You Guess These Popular Enagagement rings?

In recent years even men have jumped on the band wagon of getting huge engagement rings, take a look at popular rapper Gucci Mane's wedding ring. It would honestly put some women's rings to shame if you ask me. Gone are the days of just a simple band for men, I guess diamonds are a guys best friend as well. 





 It seems to be all about the ring if you ask me, and nothing about the commitment or what the ring actually represents. I mean if you are over extending yourself or making a purchase outside of your financial limits maybe it's time to take a step back and re valuate what's really important.  There may even be a solution to the financial woes of purchasing a big rock. You can always upgrade your spouses ring after initially jumping the broom which will give you time to save more money to purchase the ring of his/her dreams.

So I pose the question Does the size of your engagement ring really matter?

  1. Two carats sounds ideal when your looking at photos of rings you think you need. I personally dislike real jewelry so as great as it sounds I’d prefer a vacation with clear water instead of a Dodge Charger on my finger.

    1. exactly or a down payment on a home, I have always imagined a nice size ring but in time and maturing I just want what the ring represents far more. 2cts is very modest compared to what I see on social media nowadays.

  2. Reality shows and Hollywood haved caused Americans, especially younger Americans to become very materialistic. My mom and dad were married 64 years. Not only did she not get an engagement ring, she didn't get a plain gold wedding band until after they were married. They were struggling and material things like food, clothing, and shelter were more important to them than 'carats on my finger'. My mom was more confident in being a wife than being a bride. Times got better--my parents owned several homes, we lived well and when my dad passed away this past March, he died a wealthy man. If the couple owns a home and money is not a problem, buy what you can afford. If the couple is not financially secure and an expensive ring is purchased on a credit card, sounds like they may have misplaced priorities.

    1. First and formeost I'm so sorry for your loss, being married for 64 years is real life #relationshipgoals. I totally agree buying what you can afford is essential and also listening to your spouse and ensuring that he/she doesn't want a huge rock maybe important as well. I totally agree we are living in a world of "false reality" and everyone is trying to outshine the next persons ring, wedding, proposal etc. I'm learning to live in the moments and make them really count.

  3. I feel the size of an engagement doesn't matter cause if you on a budget rings can get pretty expensive.

    1. yes budgeting is essential and I think everyone should stay withing their means, overe extending yourself may cause a bigger burden then necessary.
