Yes, and I'd tell her too. I wouldn't marry a woman that required overpriced rocks.

Why would you when they make perfectly good industrial diamonds now?

Not only is it cheaper than a "natural" diamond, but if she gets upset at you about it, you can ask her how much blood she requires of her diamonds and guilt her into dropping the issue. :p

Nah, I don't believe in magic rocks... that's essentially what gemstones are, some esoteric symbol of wealth. So i'd get something that looks awesome, like a piece of Alexandrite.

If she insisted (if we are picking out a Ring together, and she picks a CZ one), why not...?

But me personally, I would get her a natural one or a Birthstone one or one of her favorite Gemstones (Ruby, Amethyst, etc)

I wouldn't want a man proposing to be with this huge beautiful ring, or in a public crowded place. I wouldn't even care if we didn't have rings at all.
I just want somebody who will bring meat and cheese to me instead of roses.

This. I dont want a girl that's so self absorbed they require being adorned with fancy jewelry. I might get her a nice diamond ring anyway but I dont want a woman who demands it

If u get ur fiance a CZ ring, you shouldnt be marrying her. You dont even have to be rich to be better than that. If u cant afford diamonds, just dont get a jeweled ring. My parents were poor when they were engaged and they had plain platinum bands. They were like $400 each, which isnt too bad for rings, and yet they are classy as hell. CZ is not classy.

They're so good that the jewelry industry had to lobby for laws to be passed that there be an indication on the industrial diamond to denote that it was created in a lab. So they wouldn't flood the market and lower prices for "real" diamonds.

In this case, the reason is that diamond companies convinced the general populace that it was the thing to do.

My wife, when I asked what kind of ring she wanted if I ever proposed basically said "I don't really want a diamond, and please just get it off like, Overstock.com and save money"

I ended up finding a synthetic white sapphire that she loves, that was like, 66% off when I bought it.

What girl?
Also I believe that engagements/weddings are about you and the person you're wanting to marry not about expensive tat. Mind you even if the opportunity presented itself I probably wouldn't want to get married anyway as it's all rather pointless.

I got my fiancee a moisonite Stone and she loves it. People can't tell the difference between it and real diamond and she's gotten a ton of compliments on it. Some people tjink I paid more than triple of what I actually paid.

It's a great alternative if you want something that is nearly indistinguishable from diamond for almost a fourth of the price.

I got my wife a gemstone ring that cost like $700 and she loved it and still wears it out. It's her favorite color and the gemstone of the month we met.
