4 Things That Weigh As Much As Avril Lavigne’s New Honkin’ Huge Engagement Ring

We were shocked and awed when we found out that Avril Lavigne and Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger were some kind of crazy Canadian power couple. We were further stunned to find out Chadders gifted his ladyfriend with a ginormous crack rock of an engagement ring — featuring a 14-carat diamond that’s estimated to cost around $800,000. I guess it actually pays to be the most hated band in the world.

Above, we’ve gathered several items that weigh about as much as the stone in Avril’s ring. I hope she’s been doing finger exercises…

When you get drunk with your boyfriend at the lake and decide to get engaged while under the influence of a decent-sized bottle of Jim Beam, you don’t exactly get the whole kneel-down, velvet-box proposal. No, what you get is peeling your face off a mattress the next morning and wondering where your pants are and oh my God, donde tacos?, and oh yeah, forever love.

But I’m of the School of Functional Alcoholic Thought that subscribes to the idea that alcohol just lubes you up for stuff you really want to do in your secret heart, rather than forces you to do things you’d rather not. So not only do I not regret our engagement story, I think it’s true to who Patrick and I are (enthusiastic boozers) and what kind of relationship we have (the kind where we do s**t the way we like to do it.)

The drunkgagement is also a good way to end up being engaged without a ring, because who just goes around getting wasted with diamonds in their pockets? I mean, besides fancy people, obviously.  Keep reading »

Guy Sells Engagement Ring On Craigslist — For $1!

What do you do when an engagement goes sour? If you’re one anonymous guy in Iowa, you put the ring up for sale on Craigslist, for a dollar. According to the post, which has since been removed by the author (most likely due to the high volume of interest):

“A jeweler and I designed the ring in 2009 for an amazing woman. She wore it during our engagement, an engagement that we ended a bit ago with great regret. A grad student, I know I should be selling it so as to buy groceries and fill the laundromat washing machine with quarters. Like most students I’m living pretty hand-to-mouth. Yet there’s something about treating this token of deep love like a used car that feels wrong, feels like a violation of everything beautiful about the world that drew this woman and I together in the first place. I joyfully put my pennies away for months so she could wear this. Knowing that a lot of us are struggling to pay the bills right now, I’m hoping that the gift of this ring might make it easier for another couple to begin a life together.”

Here’s hoping this guy finds true love with someone new. [Racked] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Feel Guilty About Selling My Engagement Ring

engagement ring photo

It was insanely beautiful. A round diamond in the middle, surrounded by a ring of tiny diamonds, set in platinum. It was custom-designed, but looked vintage. I had never thought much about diamonds — in fact, all of my jewelry, save the pair of diamond studs he had gifted me a couple years before, was from Forever 21 — but it was as if my boyfriend of four years knew exactly what kind of ring I would want when he proposed. I must have said, “Oh my god” 100 times. I wore the ring with love and pride up until we broke up nine-and-a-half months later. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: There (Probably) Won’t Be A Proposal This Christmas

A few weeks ago my boyfriend and I were doing laundry at his parents’ house when I overheard him talking to his mom about his Christmas present for me. Neither, it seemed, realized how easily noise traveled from the kitchen through the dining room to the living room. I could only pick up a few words, like “reservations.” At a separate time, I told him how my present for him was waiting at my parents’ house to be opened on Christmas morning and he replied that it would be really awkward for him to give his gift to me in front of my parents. On top of this, he started teasing me about my present coming in the mail and forwarding me FedEx emails just to taunt me.

Naturally, I started to think he had bought an engagement ring. And in addition to being in love, I felt like I was walking on air.

Then, a few days later, the FedEx package arrived. Keep reading »
