Is Major Engagement Ring Bling Tacky?

When it comes to celebrity proposals, we expect big bling. Size matters, people. But now hubbies-to-be with money to burn should probably think again before purchasing a major rock to adorn their love’s ring finger. You see, in case you haven’t noticed, we’re kind of in a recession, and the idea of flaunting just how much money you make has become a bit grotesque. Instead of showing off their brilliant diamonds, which cost the men hundreds of thousands or even a million or more dollars, ladies are opting for simple wedding bands instead of doubling up their ring finger metal. So if your dreams are to wear a ring that hurts your finger, you might want to hold off on the proposal until the economy turns. [Stylelist]
