        There are so many pictures out there and stories about the rings given to celebrities. The latest was the ring given to a woman on a reality show called "The Bachelorette".

        Now, whether you're a man or woman does the ring matter? Some see it as nothing more than a symbol of love and the ring should not matter under any circumstances. Not that it has to be some ridiculously priced bobble but it has to be pretty or something I like to wear, right? This doesn't only apply to engagement or wedding rings but jewelry in general.

        In no way would I ever tell him I didn't like it. I could never hurt someone like that but I may find excuses not to wear those ugly earring he gave me last Christmas.

        Would you openly admit not liking a ring etc. to your partner? Or are you currently wearing something that your partner gave you that you don't like?

        I really don't like any kind of jewelry and everyone knows that, I tell it openly. So, I don't really get jewelry from anyone. Regarding a wedding rings, hmm... I would wear it during my wedding and I would take it off afterwards ... gladly.

          I would never let on that I didn't like huge gold earrings or an ugly ring  - I just would try not to wear them.  If questioned, I would say that I'm saving them for a really special occasion.  I would hate to hurt his feelings. 

          I guess the ring does matter to a degree.

          I am right with you on that one blue. I love jewelry and when someone gives you a gift whether it is jewelry or any other type of gift i could never ever say i don't like it. The way i see it is if someone goes out of their way to offer such a kind and thoughtful gesture that can sometimes hold more beauty than the gift itself.

          Me and my wife decided we don't need rings or pieces of paper. We have been living together for years and we don't need a ring or a document to say that we're together.

          As for presents, we are pretty open when we don't like a gift. For instance, I bought her a blouse and since I don't know much about clothes, she didn't like it. She never wore it but I don't mind, the ironic smile on her face when she first saw it was enough for me

          I'm completely innocent. and I'm sure that for some the same ring could be a turn on.

          That's a really nice arrangement you two have and I also think that there's no need for a ring or a documents.

          I like the rings. It says to each other "I'm proud to declare you're MINE" and it's a nice easy way to let others know 'I'm off the market". If you don't like gaudy rings, discuss long before the question being popped what you do or don't like. I have. I personally can't stand gold. Platinum all the way baby lol, but for economics I'd settle for titanium. I don't think everyone needs the paper or rings or documents, but for me, I'd like the wedding to share my decision to a life-long commitment with my friends. the paper makes tax issues and wills easier, and the ring serves not only as a warning flag to others, but tells my partner I'm bound in more than just the legal ways

          I like the warning flag aspect I would be offended if my husband didn't want to wear his ring. Why not? I could see if you're working in a job that could scratch it all up but other than that you better wear it. hehehe

          I can appreciate what you're saying Johnny. I liked the idea of "celebrating" that with family and friends but I agree that you dont need a piece of paper to show you love someone; however it does make combining your finances etc much easier.

                    Those are valid points on either side;  as for me.... well I've been married now for a few years and my wife would've whupt (real word in the south ya'll)  my ass good if I didn't get her a ring.  'Sides it's tradition y'know.  I have one too.  In America as I'm sure most of the world we're real big on tradition.    ( Also  an occasional ass whuppin' when deemed appropriate)

          That's why titanium is so wonderful; scratch resistant, whereas gold is so soft

          The rings do have significant meaning...."we belong together."  But, diamonds, hence diamond rings, are PRICE FIXED by the diamond cartels. 

          Don't believe me?  Buy a $3000 diamond engagement ring and try to sell it.  Try.  You will be lucky to get $100.

          Haven't had any major problems so far, except once when we tried to take a bank loan together and one of the banks in the city required us to be married. That was solved quickly though, as other banks accepted us without being married. I guess bureaucrats will be more and more open to this kind of arrangement in the future.
