Dating is no joke...In fact, romantic life can often just feel like a string of missed opportunities as you search and search for "the one."
Looking for love can be exhausting.

Being in a happy relationship is many people's aim.Finding the person who's a perfect fit, and that you can stay committed to for a long time, can make it feel like your life is moving in the right direction.

Some couples wish to take their commitment a step further.Becoming engaged to be married is one way that many choose to express the seriousness of their love for one another.
Many of us have marriage in our life plan.

Which can put a lot of pressure on the situation.If the proposal is supposed to set the trend for how the wedding (and even the marriage) will go, many want it to be absolutely perfect.
Proposals have become a pretty big deal.

There's one area in particular that this manifests.In the physical symbol of the commitment itself - the engagement ring. For many, the ring is almost the most important aspect of an engagement.
And there's usually an even more specific concern.

And obviously, the jewel represents something else.Diamonds cost a pretty penny - so a ring with a really big one is a not-so-subtle way to brag about wealth.
A huge ring is a spectacle.

It can also be a way to set the tone.An amazing ring will surely lead to an amazing wedding, and thus an amazing marriage ... right?
Well, one woman decided she was going to share the news with the world...By posting a picture of her very expensive engagement ring that her ex designed for her.
However, the response was very mixed with some people...
Posting it to the Facebook group "That's it, I'm ring shaming," the idea behind it was a "double" engagement ring...
via: ShutterstockThe man who designed the unique piece decided he wanted to combine 2 different jewels together to create a masterpiece.
But even the woman receiving the gift was not so sure about it...
via: Shutterstock"I was gaslit into thinking this was a beautiful ring and I just had bad taste," she said. "IT DROVE ME CRAZY AND I WORE IT FOR 6 MONTHS OF MY LIFE pleeeeeease shame it and tell me I’m not crazy to hate it."
via: Shutterstock"It was appraised for [10K] CAN YOU BELIEVE? "Also I did return it to him when we broke up (although he offered to let me keep it). I never wanted to see that thing again."
I mean, the thought behind it is definitely very nice...
