It’s a thrilling time for anyone in love when they get engaged. However, one woman was unsure if she should be singing with joy or pouting away in bitterness after her partner of eight years gave her an extremely tiny engagement ring. The lady who received the ring opted to seek advice from strangers on the internet, so she snapped a photo of the ring on her finger to Reddit, where it soon went viral.

“This is the ring he said he saved up to buy me,” the woman posted on Reddit. “Am I being shady or materialistic if I tell this mf ion want this little a– ring?”

One thing that seems to be clear is that this lady’s ring after eight years with her spouse was awful. Some people went so far as to criticize the guy’s judgment, considering he was ready to propose to his lover with such a little tiny ring.

“I’m not materialistic when it comes to things like this, but if my man proposed with THAT, I would be full-on insulted,” wrote one woman. “There are nicer, more substantial rings than that for $200. He went out of his way to find the cheapest possible option, which to me says that he’s probably like that in every aspect of the relationship and will probably be like that in every aspect of their marriage. You can count on it.”

Although the guy most likely spent around $200 or $300 on the ring, one would expect him to have put a little more money into an engagement ring, especially given his relationship with the lady for eight years. Why didn’t he save up some more money for a beautiful ring so that he could wow his fiancée and make her feel loved and appreciated?

Some people remarked that it appeared as if the individual was unable to save any money.

“Not gonna lie,” said one person. “I’d be more concerned about his’ saving up to buy something that little. Simply because it shows that a wedding is probably not in the budget.”

“I agree,” another person stated. “While I have no idea what this costs, it doesn’t look like a ring one would need to save up for. They have been talking about marriage for three years, but have they gone window shopping for engagement rings? Have they discussed style, size, and budget for the ring as well as a wedding?”

“This will hopefully lead to a budget discussion and set priorities,” one person added.

“Exactly,” said another. “My husband has bought some jewelry for me that wasn’t my taste. I wanted to have an engagement ring I absolutely loved, so we picked it out together. We got engaged almost three years ago, and I still stare at my ring every day because I absolutely adore it.”

What do you think of this tiny engagement ring?
