‘What we would do if our boyfriends proposed with cheap rings’ -Young ladies speak (2)

The rapid growth of technology and the social media has given room for a lot of exposure and avenues to show off.

Most young people live and breathe the social media, hence the need to show off any newly acquired item and daily activities to get popularity on social media. Social media platforms like Instagram and Snap chat are currently the happening platforms.

It was reported recently that a lady rejected the engagement ring with which her boyfriend of three years proposed to her because the stone on the ring wasn’t big enough and that the ring was too cheap, and also she had to meet up with the standard she had set for herself on her social media accounts. So, showing a cheap ring with a small stone will not make her trend online.

Popular wedding blogs like Bellanaija and Wedding Digest are known to feature romantic proposals and beautiful rings.

In fact, there is a belief that if you are featured in the websites or social media pages of any of the wedding blogs, you automatically become cool, popular then gain more followers and likes. This had made a lot of ladies go crazy about the kind of rings they get proposed with. So, ladies begin to hint their boyfriends on the type of rings they want by showing them samples on the internet. Some ladies also go to the extent of buying their own engagement rings.

ENCOMIUM Weekly did a search speaking with young ladies and asking them what they would do if their boyfriend proposed with a cheap ring and if the price or size of a ring equals the love a man has for his woman, and we sure got a lot of interesting views…
