- Social media users were left stunned over an engagement ring with a massive price tag
- The diamond ring costs R159 000 after it was discounted from a whopping R244 615
- South Africans believe there are better ways to spend that amount of money and they gave some examples
Getting engaged doesn't have to break the bank. However, there are people who can afford a rock with a massive price-tag.
One beautiful ring was shared on social media. The ring originally costs R244 615 but was discounted to R159 000.
Twitter parody account Man's Not Barry Roux posted a snap of the piece of jewellery on the social media platform on Thursday.
Man's Not Barry Roux captioned the post:
Take a look at the post below:
The influencer then posted a photo of a car that costs less than the expensive engagement ring.
South Africans found the price insane and they expressed their views online. Some said one could make a down payment on a house with that money or buy an RDP house and a cheap car.
Twitter user, @Jrblack09217626, commented:
"I can buy an RDP house for R90k and fix it up and maybe add a lil for a Toyota Tazz."
Mada Okafor, who goes by the Twitter handle @makgoabane, added:
"It’s only Somizi who can afford it and buy for Mohale. Thina sephelela kabo 1K."
Previously, Briefly.co.za reported travel blogger and YouTube star, Laura G, and her millionaire boyfriend got engaged in Paris a couple of months ago and she took to Instagram to detail every moment of the special moment.
"He liked it, so he put a ring on it!" she captioned one of the photos.
One of the photos showed the happy couple dining with the Eiffel Tower in the background while fireworks go off. Internet trolls slammed the extravagant proposal and the massive engagement ring.
Some dubbed the ring "tacky" on a Facebook group called “That’s It, I’m Ring Shaming”.
"It looks like something I would have received as part of a prize at an arcade when I was five and would wear for a week until the ring part snapped,” one person commented.
