The ring on the left is diamond, and costs $4,000. The right one is cubic zirconia, and is $19.99. Can we all please agree that it is fucking stupid to buy, ask for, or expect gemstones? Please? If you want a shiny ring, get a goddamn shiny ring. Trust me, I understand the desire to look like you are some kind of ancient monarch. Just maybe don’t buy something that costs as much as a used car.
Do you realize how large that price difference is? If you want to spend $4,000 dollars on someone, buy them the $20 ring, and then promise them 796 sandwiches. That’s over two years of sandwiches! It’s not an issue now, but just in case my future husband is reading this: don’t give me a diamond ring for a present, ever. Not even on our wedding.
Propose to me with sandwiches.
