Man spends £14,000 on engagement ring but girlfriend hates giant diamond
Choosing an engagement ring for your partner is a pretty big deal – and whether you have £50 or £50,000 you want to pick one she will love.
But, one bloke discovered that his fiancé wasn’t easily pleased after saving up for 10 years to buy the perfect rock.
He splashed out £14,000 on the massive gem only for his girlfriend to label him an “a**hole” for buying a lab grown diamond.
The bloke posted on Reddit, reports Honey.nine, and said that he’d chosen the lab created jewel as it meant he could get his partner a bigger diamond at a better price.

He looked for reassurance from other social media users.
The bloke wrote: "AITA [Am ITheA••hole] for buying my fiancée a lab grown diamond and refusing to exchange it for a natural stone?
“She was initially floored that I had spent so much but later became suspicious that I had managed to get such a large stone (3.6 carats) for the price, and asked to see the diamond certificate I got with the ring.”
He added that he also chose to go for lab-grown because it had environmental benefits and he could be sure that it wasn’t a “conflict” diamond.
The man said: “"Lab-grown diamonds are 'indistinguishable from natural ones' and [my] fiancé wouldn't have been able to tell the difference if I hadn't told her.
"She called me an 'a**hole' and went to stay the night with her parents.
"Since then I have received multiple texts from her friends telling me to just acquiesce and exchange the ring (and, ultimately, I will if it mean saving the relationship), but I just feel like this is something worth being firm on."
And, people in the comments were divided.
