Ladies, Is your E-ring worth more than your hubby's car?

    @Dancing Fire I think you are recycling questions LOL but I get the reasoning behind it. To liven things up. So I will play.

    Yes my ER is worth more than our Lexus SUV.

    A car is a car and will get you so far
    but a ring is a thing that will be a star
    forever and ever if we so choose
    so no comparison necessary
    ring wins and car does lose


    :P2

    LOL well I was going with the cost of a new Lexus SUV which still costs less than my ER. Either way I slice it the ER costs more than the car. As it should be. Of course one's mileage may vary and there is no right or wrong. But you know what they say about diamonds...

    I will say cats look great with diamonds or cars so either way cannot go wrong :P2

    No but cars cost more in Australia than the US, then again so does high end jewellery.

    Which car?! We have four :oops2: Hubby loves his cars like I love my jewels but his hobby costs more than mine. It’s all good though, we support each other’s pursuits. =)2

    Nope lol. Not even close. Those kind of rings will always be daydreams for me even when he gets out of the military.

    right now it is lol, his car is 7 years old (I think) but he is looking at a new one since we have baby #2 on the way and then his car will be worth more than my ring. Granted the ring didn't really cost us anything since it is inherited so I am not sure if it "technically" counts

    My current ring is very modest by PS standards, but still costs more than all my dh's cars which are FREE from his company, with a new one every 3 years.

    About the same at the time of purchase. However, I can still trade-in my stone back to WF for full retail but my DH's car is now worth less than half his purchase, should he choose to trade-in. :lol::lol::lol:

    Well our Highlander is 12 years old at this point and my main diamond I wear as an E-ring was a pawn shop find so no, the car is worth more.

    I personally wouldn't be okay with owning a piece of jewelry that cost more than our main source of transportation that is essential to life especially being working middle class on one income with kids.

    DH car is worth more than my ER.
    I have a friend whose family ring was worth more than their house.
    The really sad thing was that 3 generations of women in the family and not one of them had ever worn it as it sits in a bank vault somewhere. I only saw a photo of it, it was an OEC of around 15 carats. The great great (?) grandma was a British Baroness or similar. There had been diamond tiaras as well but they had been sold/ broken up over the generations and for death taxes in the UK. That’s why the family castle or whatever it was was sold too.

    More than my car, less than my husbands. Don’t think it matters. What’s important is that cars are safe and reliable. All three do their jobs adequately and there is money available to upgrade (cars) if necessary.

    When we first got his car (and my car as well) , my engagement ring would have cost less than either. Now that the cars are a few years old I think my ring is worth more.

    Yes, once it graces my finger! We are practical car people though and prefer to spend our money on other things.

    My husband's cars are worth more, but my 2 cars are worth less. We have 4 cars between us, so that is rather obnoxious. :roll2:
