7000G is a ton for a ring...considering the mark-up in jewelry...probably about 1200 wholesale price.
Look if you think the ring is what it takes to get the girl...start counting the days to the divorce.
Big Heart--small ring...Big Ring--small thing!
Some will get it, some won't
Just an FYI, 7000G is 7 million.
Just WOW

Now now, Theresa. I hardly think you are in a position to judge other people for putting things in their mouths.

See this is precisely why I wouldn't want a ring that expensive whether it's an engagement ring or not. I would be constantly worrying about losing it or damaging it that I would be absolutely miserable.

If people have the money for such things and enjoy wearing them, that's their right.

I honestly wouldn't be happy with such a ring.

No not really it just shows that your pu4$y whipped and need to buy your woman expensive things to get anywhere with her.
Of course if you are comfortable tying her to the trough of 3.2 beer, while you try to fit her feet in your boots, then by all means, press on.

Apparently I'm the only one around here unfamiliar wish SCUBA diving. The fact that she lost it or how she lost it is not that interesting to me. What I find fascinating is how a tiny, tiny object could actually be found. Even a haystack is pretty small compared to a huge lake. But a tiny ring compared to a massive lake that is acres in size?! Finding an object in a larger object that is trillions of times larger than it is no small feat, in my opinion.

The STrib has a longer article. It appears the folks in the boat were drunk (relevant? perhaps!) and as they were all jumping in looking for it (thus stirring up the sand) a nearby boater contacted his dad (the diver.)

The diver arrived a half hour later, had people place big rocks from shore where the ring fell in so that he could find the location later. So, really, he didn't have to search the entire lake like this article seems to leave people believing.
