Is it okay to buy a cubic zirconia ring now and later replace with a diamond?
My girlfriend and I have been together for 7 years! since we were 15 years old! I will be 23 in February! I lost my job as a restaurant manager in January and things have been tight ever since. I really want to propose and she really wants me to as well. BUT money is really tight. Is it tacky or bad etiquette to purchase a cubic zirconia ring now...and then replace it later down the road with a nice diamond when funds are more accessible? Please give me as much feed back as possible! Really need some good advice. Thanks!

I personally would not, I would get a cheap ring from a Pawn Shop. You can still get a nice ring with gold and a diamond, but with a little gold and a small diamond. With the price of gold so high, all the "we buy gold" and pawn shop's have handfull's of small rings with small diamonds. Maybe worth only $50 in gold... More

Well i think if your gonna do that at least tell her so that she has something to look forward too. Honesty is always best & if something happens to the CZ on accident you dont want her to be unpleasantly surprised
