But what do you do if you find out everyone else seems to hate it? One woman was relentlessly mocked after sharing a photo of the ring her boyfriend picked out for her.
The 'minimalist' ring, which he bought from the online marketplace Etsy, is a plain silver band with a very small diamond.
She posted a snap in a wedding shaming Facebook group with the message: "My bf and I ordered my ring online and I am in LOVE with it!"
But before long the photo attracted a lot of negative comments, with people telling her the ring was awful and she shouldn't wear it, reports the Sun .
One wrote: "Why even bother having a diamond there."
Another added: "It's so pitiful, I just can’t. It's too sad."
One woman asked why she was even bothering to wear the ring.
Others compared it to a keyring and said the diamond looked more like a piece of tinfoil.
