Dear LIB readers: Can I buy my own engagement ring?

From a LIB reader...
I'm engaged but I'm not wearing a ring. My boyfriend proposed to me during the Christmas holidays but didn't give me a ring because he couldn't afford to buy me one he knows I will appreciate. He told me he will get me the ring before our wedding in August but it's becoming embarrassing because whenever I tell people I'm engaged they look at my fingers to see the ring and there's nothing there. Ever since I saw Tiwa's engagement ring I've been feeling really sad. I make far more money than my fiance and can afford to buy the ring of my dreams. Should I go ahead and buy my own engagement ring? My man will be mad and disappointed but I'd rather that than the way I feel at the moment.
What do you guys think?

Are you using the ring to tell people that you are engaged? How sure are you that ring is a true symbol of genuie love? And buying it yourself will not be appreciated from your fiance you only want to give way to bad conception in your relationship, WISE UP JOOOO.

Tell him to buy you any ring really. Its his job and you should be content with what he can afford

Are you crazy? Of course you can't buy your own engagement ring. Don't make him feel inferior. You already make more money than him. You don't need to remind him.

Girllllllllllllll dont you buy your ring yourself please. You will hurt bruise his ego. Are you a considerate woman and mother to be? If the answer is yes, let him buy you something small or cheap for now just to wear on you finger since it will give you peace.When he has enough money for what you want you will get it. Be patient there is more to an impending marriage. Meet him halfway girl

But what kind of man would propose without a ring. Even if it is a promise ring till the real ring comes, it's better. Since wedding is in August, he could have waited a while till he had the ring.

gloria sharon said...

Some girls can be annoying & desperate sha! Did you engage yourself?Ask your guy if you can buy yourself a ring,why ask us?You will only prove to him that your higher pay will be an issue in marriage besides not all engagements end up in marriage so spare yourself the embarrassment in case it doesn't work out.He has already promised to get you a ring,why wud you flaunt his poverty in his face?A word is enuf...

★★PRINCE CHARMING™★★ said...

Giving your partner money is normal so give him some money and he can buy a ring of his choice for you, simple! I don't think its cool getting one for yourself.

Anonymous said...

no you can't. don't insult your fiance by getting yourself a wedding. we know he's not rich but don't rub your money in his face. An engagement ring is something he alone should buy for you. You can then buy a wedding ring of your choice. You don't need a ring to make you feel engaged. I'm married & i rarely wear my wedding ring - and it doesn't make me feel less married. I'm female incase you're wondering.

Anonymous said...

you are quite silly...as a guy I wouldnt settle for someone like u...i dont mind having a girl who earns more, but to go out of your way to buy a ring, cos i can't afford what u would appreciate???well, if u loved him, u would appreciate whatever he can afford to get for u.

my advice is do not buy your engagement ring cos you'll be termed an oppressor who is likely to be controlling her husband because she is riher than him.

Anonymous said...

You are going to be married to him for the rest of your life (hopefully). The people you are trying to impress with an engagement ring won't be in the marriage with you. So the real question is do you intend to spend your life worrying about what people think of you?

Whatchu mean by ring of your dreams? Lol, let him buy you the ring he can afford jhare. Wear it. Maybe later you can cuy yours and have two rings. Its not an issue really

Be careful this is a critical move you want to make... Marriage is not a game , it is serious . I will advice you honour your husban-to-be by waiting for him to buy it, and if you truly communicate well ,this matter can be resolved . It's just has to do with understanding . Please take this as one of the early test of marriage life.

No dear...don't buy, allow him to buy you a ring.see forget all the pictures/what you hear about the celebrities,there is more at the back of the pictures you don't get to hear. Be happy with your man and remember you owe no body no explanation as regards your engagement ring.good luck

Dont buy the ring. Let him buy it. the moment you start doing the job of a man in your family, you will do it for the rest of your life. Wait and let him give you it to you. When he does and you dont like it, tell him you will wear it and you are expecting an upgrade. Be patient and let him be the man.

My dear, so many girls out there have been proposed to without engagement rings and are preparing for their weddings this year so why are you complaining? Haven't you seen girls who got engaged with a ring and still didn't get married to the guy? Stop telling people you are engaged. Just tell them you are getting married. Abeg park well jor!

What is more important and what u should be praying for is that he marries you!!! and you have a GOOD Marriage.You dont Need a Ring to tell people that u r engaged its none of anybody's business.
I would rather have a man that loves me 100% and marries me and treats me well in the marriage than sport any stupid Ring wether its daimond or plastic.Anyway you must be a very young or immature lady to post this kind od thing dont worry as you grow and experience you will understand whats more important in life...my two cents

i am married now and bought our wedding rings and engagement rings. Bad mistake, bad bad move. I found my husband flirting with some woman on his phone. I took all the rings and threw it away. Part of my conditions for him is to buy me new rings and the ones i want.
the problem is, i have money and i am pulling the weight. Now i let him pull the weight and let him know i am waiting on/for him. With all that pressure from me and demand from the family, hopeful he wont have time to do nonsense anymore.
FYI. i still dont have a ring on my hand. I am waiting and i keep reminding him

O gaa o! This ring issue sef.I'm married and I don't wear a ring cuz I don't want to. To me,a ring doesn't mean more than a piece of jewelry. Let the man show me he loves me through his actions and I'll do the same. People ask me and for a ring and I tell them I don't need one. This ain't cuz my hubby 'can't afford one at the moment',he can even afford rings for all my fingers but I married him with my heart not my fingers. Babe,relax and don't listen to what everyone says about you not having a ring. Start planning your marriage instead!

Anonymous said...

from the little i have read clearly you are a middle age lady desperate to get married and that seems to be the reason why you are getting married in the first place. The real reasons why people marry - love ,respect, etc obviously are absent here.... otherwise you wouldn't be bothered about a silly thing such as a ring. i am married and i can understand the buzz a ring causes (usually before the wedding and for a little while after the wedding), but its short lived, in the sense that a few months after, e.g you wash your hands with your ring on (compared to a few months before when you will buff and shine and treat the ring like a little prince), more important things take over like running your family and home and learning to live with your husband....the ring buzz is usually all about showing off to your other female friends and making them green with envy...after a while the buzz dies down... PLSSS DO NOT BUY YOUR SELF A RING WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF YOUR FIANCE.....you will be doomed for a rocky marriage if you do, and that marriage wont last because your husband is a man and they have large egos. the fact that you earn far more than him is already bad enough to chip his ego, he will only see your move as a sign of disrespect and will probably hold it to heart and one day he will explode. pray to God for patience, wisdom and understanding...

im suspecting that the reason, he proposed to you without a ring in the first place may be due to unspoken(or perhaps spoken) pressure due to your age and other circumstances i.e pressure from you or your family/friends.....
its an awkward situation, solution might be to stop announcing that you are engaged till you get a ring or if you can't resist telling all understandably, mention that both your intentions is to buy a matching engagement and ring set and you don't want to rush... trust me people will appreciate that view... stop trying to keep up with the jonses...a lot of people who have done so, are no longer married, just after a few years of that mega wedding ceremony...

if u guys are trully meant to be married, speak with your husband to be and tell him to buy you any cheap but nice looking ring, tell him that you are not concerned about round cut diamonds, any will do since its from him... wait a few months or a year after the wedding and let the ring get lost or stolen and buy your self your dream ring.... after the wedding, when responsibilities start jamming the guy, he wont even notice whats on your finger, but at least you wont have hurt his feelings... if u go and buy a ring now and he gets so upset and he cancels the wedding, what will u do? pls be smart abet

My dear u r on a very long thing, u better humble urself from the very begining if u must be happy in ur home. Husband is the head of the house and must be the one to buy ur ring, I am in a similar position, i earn 4x more than what my hubb earns but i ensure we live (i adjusted my lifestyle to accomodate him)according to his budget, i save my money, i will not travel for any holiday if he cannot afford to buy me the ticket at that time.

you buying ur ring is very rude and arrogant. so be wise and know what u trully want, before u commit.

I don't think it wise to do that. You don't want your husband to think that because you earn more than him and can afford to buy things yourself, you can and will, even before you get married. If you are going to marry this man, in my humble opinion, you ought to learn to cut your coat according to HIS size.

Having said that, his financial position shouldn't limit you either. This is 2013, he is allowed to earn less than you, but speak to him first. Regardless of how independent and financial stable you are, you're about to become life partners, a team. Thus you should work together. Tell him how you feel and see. Your husband is unlikely to be happy about your present state.

Good luck.

My only advise for u is that the moment u buy that ring things will NEVA be as they used to be. Or if u truly want a ring u cud talk to him to get the one he can afford for now then later when he has more money he wud buy the more expensive one. Be proud of ur man woman!

Umunwanyi, na wa o. must it be like tiwa's own. cant u or him buy the one he can afford. marriage is not about material things. i ve been engaged for 3 years now, my hubby was without a job at that time. i can afford a wedding with help of my parents and friends but i refused and bought a 5k ring i know he can afford.
But now he earns twice than me. our wedding is in Nov(my bd) and all bills on him(his idea). so my dear either u buy one and lie low cos table can turn his side tomorrow. i am a living witness.

You know men and their pride.....plus men are like elephants they neveeeeerrrrr forget. So you may have to choose between hurting your man's ego and paying for it the rest of your marriage, or just not wearing a ring. Besides its no one's business whether you wear a ring or not. Also similar scenarios will occur during your marriage and you don't want to make your husband seem like he's inadequate....

Why not talk to him,I understand how u feel,am sure he knows u r richer,tell him how u feel,nd if he doesn't mind,u can borrow him some cash,let him add up nd get u d ring! Tell him its a Loan,even if its not.

lol,i can go as far as hinting which ring i want or slapping the picture right in his face so he doesn't buy me something I don't like...but to pay for my own engagement ring???ahh, i don't have liver for that one o! I'd rather not wear anything and just wear a nice wedding band...
another option i would suggest is to go shopping together for a ring HE CAN AFFORD, so even if it's cheap, it's something you'd like.
another option wld be make him buy the ring of your dreams, but minus it from your wedding expenses so in the end it balances out.
lol, me I want a nice ring o! i wont lie...i really don't care about the wedding. i'm happy with just a court wedding/civil union with 50 friends at a mini dinner reception...

I wish you will read this comment. Act like my girl, let me tell u what she does: whenever she wants me to get her anything, and I seem not to have the money for it at that moment, she will come the next day or wait for a while, when she didn't get it, she will come one day with the exact money that she knows will buy what needs and say my dear, I want to borrow u dis money pls buy me that I want. And she will add, remember this money was borrowed to u, and u must pay back, and believe me, she will in love make me pay back, in most cases I pay, but in others, I pay in kind, but I feel good, I bought her what she wanted, even though it was through a loan, let him be the man assist with the money if u can, but don't buy it yourself u'll kill his moral as a man, he probably hv a type he wants to buy in his head don't take dat pride of a man from him.

Let me give you an idea you did try.
I learnt from my mum. Anytime my Dad needs money or his under certain pressure to do a project but can't afford it, it gives my mum some kinda of concern. But my Dad is a very proud man, and won't want to ask my mum for money because he won't accept the fact that my mum makes more money than he does. So my mum will take as much money as He would need and give it to my Uncle or my Dad's best friend bcos those are the only people he can ask for help. Then later that day, he will suggest to my Dad to go to those persons he had given money for the help he wanted, Sometimes he will give the excuse that he had told them before...But mum will press him harder or ask them to call him to come get the money.

At the end of the day, He gets the money not knowing exactly where it all came from. So maybe you apply some of that wisdom to your case, am sure it will help.
But be careful, don't tell them the reasons why you giving out the money ok. Cheers...

Act like my girl, let me tell u what she does: whenever she wants me to get her anything, and I seem not to have the money for it at that moment, she will come the next day or wait for a while, when she didn't get it, she will come one day with the exact money that she knows will buy what needs and say my dear, I want to borrow u dis money pls buy me that I want. And she will add, remember this money was borrowed to u, and u must pay back, and believe me, she will in love make me pay back, in most cases I pay, but in others, I pay in kind, but I feel good, I bought her what she wanted, even though it was through a loan, let him be the man assist with the money if u can, but don't buy it yourself u'll kill his moral as a man, he probably hv a type he wants to buy in his head don't take dat pride of a man from him.

Simply talk the problem over with him and then stylishly lend him the money for your dream ring. If he picks offence, he has an ego problem.

Those who have caps don't have heads. I've been engaged for a couple yrs with a diamond ring o. I even have a child for him now yet no marriage. I even wanna move on with my life Sef. My dear, don't buy any ring now. wait till after marriage n buy what you want.

Communication matters here. He said he cannot afford the one you will value.Tell him you will appreciate and value any ring he buys and he does not have to wait to buy a an expensive ring.and whatever he gets you value it whether it is like Tiwa's or not.I don't think you should buy your ring though

My dear if you are really keen on having a ring, there are stainless steel rings that go for as low as 4,500 at bead emporium. I did not like my engagement ring and I went to the store and got this lovely stainless steel ring, and trust me it has lasted. I actually haven't removed it since the day I bought it. But mind you my fiance paid for it. I think you should talk to him about going to pick a ring together. That way he will feel like a man that he is.

If u start now to b buying ur self things,when will u stop. Marriage is a life long committement. If u show 'a lot of indepenses'. The man will tactically withdraw. Be wise. U will gain a lot of respect if u wait on ur 'husband'.

Listen to the voice of wisdom ãήϑ wait, August will soon come. Your money can buy you the ring but when you lose his respect (and love if care is not taken) your money can never buy it.
Every man's fear is centered around his ego(that sense of Am The Superman, I can't Fail) and nothing irks them when you show them 'They Can't' which is wђã†̥ buying the ring yourself WITHOUT his sole consent means.
Personally I never believed in the ring "thing" so much coz some guys can use it to keep a lady for years, so when my husband didn't give me one I never bordered until our wedding day.
My advice will be to discuss how you feel about this ring 'ish' with him,who knows he might hasten up. In life the most important things are the ones we can't see o like his love ãήϑ affection not just ring or what your 'richness' can buy. You don't want to mess up your relationship all coz you have the cash, if you weren't rich to afford that nko? So my dear advice yourself n accept him for who he is. Money can buy ring i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ Naija but not husband, ask so many rich ladies. Goodbye o,

odu said...

Stop the criticism y'all,being engaged without the ring can be really embarassing is I fink I understand her plight,however,the fact that he didn't give her a ring cos he couldn't afford what you will appreciate shows that he already feels inadequate buying a ring yourself will further bruise his ego so I suggest that you either excercise patience pending when he can afford "the ring" or make him understand how u feel abt not wearing an engagement ring n that u will be comfortable with whichever one he can afford for now.then if u want you can infleunce his choice of wedding rings by contributing financially but u ve to do this with wisdom.The ring is too small to ve issues over cos wen u guys eventually get married there will plenty things to deal with in terms of choice,taste,neccessities and luxuries....so u need to learn frm now how to handle such issues.

Anonymous said...

pls thread carefully before you go into marriage. He said he wont be able to afford the one you would appreciate. I think you should be more concerned with that than the ring itself. I think you should make him comfortable and let him express his Love the way and how much he can afford too. if you want the ring, tell him to buy the 1 he can afford and make sure you appreciate it. i am married and i dont have a wedding band, but i wont die because of that i love my man and he would get 1 for me as soon as he can. When i am questioned abt it, i tell them i would soon get it or i dont want or i just ignore them. My engagement ring cost my husband a fortune and al the people askin abt my ring, they are not even wearing correct ring. abeg learn to appreciate your guy.

To everything under the sun there is a season. This engagement ring of a thing will soon fizzle out trust me.

Most commenters here are missing the point. It is now becoming part of our culture to wear engagement rings. To the asker:the price of the ring does not determine his love for you. Even is it is an $20 ring he can afford,let him put it on your finger. What is this "ring of your dreams" thing anyway?? Set that nonsense aside. Also,DO NOT buy yourself an engagement ring. That is just weird, and you might as well go without 1

A lady can never cherish an engagement ring bought by herself for herself, its a natural feeling even when u pretend or deceive others that it was bought by your gu, the feeling will show.I believe u will better cherish the ring he buys for you so just hold on and wait for him, when the ring is inserted into your fingers the relationship rekindles instantly.

Puhlease! It's one thing if he doesn't mind you getting it. Or you could ask him to buy whatever he can afford. When you trade it up after the wedding, he won't even notice. It's a win-win. Don't try to impress anyone by buying a ring that even him and everyone would know he couldn't have afforded. It's not worth it. I'm engaged..I don't wear a ring..bloke says he'll give me money to buy one..I'll simply double it and buy what I want..lie about the price and stone if u must..heheh

Tell ur guy to buy what he can afford for now. Doesn't have to be 18carat gold, u can go for GL or anything reasonably priced. You can always change your ring later. If you buy your engagement ring yourself, you might end up being more embarrassed when he breaks up the engagement because his ego is bruised. Then will you go back to those same people questioning you now,explaining to them what happened? Be patient and wise.
