If You Like It, Then You'd Better Put A Ring On It

About ten years ago, I remember being in a conversation with someone who said they didn't care about getting an engagement ring. I couldn't believe she would say that.

About five years ago, I went engagement ring shopping with my then-boyfriend. I had been misinformed about the appropriate amount of money that should be spent on a ring...he and I had a GIGANTIC argument through South Coast Plaza and all the way home. I was completely wrong and ridiculous...and he was happy to make that known.

Now, I'm actually hoping that I don't get an engagement ring. At least not in the conventional sense of the word...I'd be totally okay with a simple band...or even an engagement musket.
It should be noted that I'm not anywhere close to becoming engaged.

I feel the same way about receiving just a simple band...
but, damn, that ring in GORGEOUS!

Call me dumb, but what is an engagement musket? isn't that what is used at shotgun weddings?

Does the size of a diamond make a difference?
