The sky's the limit when it comes to engagement rings, meaning many people feel it's important to spend as much as they physically can to ensure it's seen as a direct representation of their love for someone... Even though it's not. It's a sodding ring.
One person's engagement ring has sparked an interesting debate about whether size really matters when it comes to proposal jewellery, after a photo of a ring with a very small stone surfaced on Reddit.
The accompanying caption read: "We been together for eight years and talking about getting married for almost three.
"This the ring he said he saved up to buy me.
"Am I being shady or materialistic if I tell this mf I don't want this little a** ring?"
The topic was brought up on Good Morning Britain today, where presenters Richard Madeley and Charlotte Hawkins discussed the importance of a diamond size.
A woman divided opinion online after complaining about the small diamond ring her fiancé gave her.
Does the size of an engagement ring matter? and would you be happy with this ring? Let us know :point_down::ring: pic.twitter.com/BZXkA7cmHo

Condemning the woman for 'moaning' about the size of the ring, Charlotte said: "I think that's mean."
Richard laughed: "It's the smallest diamond I've ever seen!"
Some people online argued that size does matter, with one tweeting: "Of course it does, who wants to wear a s*** ring for the rest of your life?"
Another wrote: "I wouldn't even try that on."
A third joked: "Is she certain it's a diamond? Looks more like a sugar granule."
One person said it depended on how much the person who proposed was earning, suggesting: "If the chap was on a very low wage so this was high % of what he had I'd be delighted, if he was on high wage & was acting like a cheap a*** I'd be furious."
But many viewers backed Charlotte, with one tweeting: "Only materialistic women will say yes! It shouldn't matter about the size or cost of a ring... surely all that should matter is LOVE."
Someone else said: "She needs to get her priorities straight. Be grateful he's wanting to commit to her rather than focusing on the size of the rock. I'd be happy with a £10 ring from Tesco. It's the meaning behind it. Shallow woman."
Another person wrote: "What an ungrateful woman this is.. She should be happy that someone wants to marry her! The diamond maybe small, but then the husband to be has make room in that marriage for her big head, and ego the size of the universe!"
