A woman ranted online after finding out that the engagement ring her fiance presented to her only cost $1,674.
The unnamed bride-to-be humiliated her fiance, also unnamed, by posting her sentiment in an online forum.
The ring didn’t quite meet her expectations. She lamented that the ring - a diamond solitaire in white gold - was too small and that it was too cheap.
“I was so happy and excited to accept but was disappointed when I first saw the ring. The first word that entered my head was ‘small’,” she wrote.

CHEAPER THAN EXPECTED
A photo of a receipt, which she posted to the online forum, showed that the ring costs $1,674. Considering that her fiance earned a six-figure sum, she had expected to receive a more expensive ring.
“Having seen the receipt I know he paid $1,674 for it – which is a lot less then what I would have imagined he would have spent on such a significant piece of jewelry,” she added.
She suspected that someone at work apparently told her fiance that if she makes it all about the ring, then she’s not the girl for him.
“Ideally, I would have loved for us to have chosen the ring together and made a special day finding one we both liked. As it’s something I’ll be wearing every day and is such a special piece of jewelry I wanted to really love it, and I just don’t,” she wrote.
Her public post backfired, however, as other women criticized her for her seeming materialism.
“My rings are from the wish app. Total of $25. I don’t care. Our love is more important than the cost of the ring,” wrote Jessica Walters.
“If he makes six figures perhaps he bought her a small ring to test her true colors and make sure he wasn’t going to marry a materialistic gold digger. Seems as though she didn’t pass that test,” shared China Wilkerson.
“Are you kidding me?! That’s expensive! Not only that, but it’s the damn thought that counts on that one. Also it’s actually very pretty. I hope he dumped her. Didn’t bother reading. Too lazy,” wrote Hayden-Marie Taute.
Another viral story about a wedding ring is not as controversial - but one that is hilarious.
Groomsmen decided to test the sense of humor of a soon-to-be couple as they feigned losing the wedding ring.
The prank was captured on camera, which quickly went viral.
