In West EU, expensive rings are commonly frowned upon.
In part because of the bad press associated with the diamond trade (= all diamonds are conflict-diamonds by default)
and in part as a rejection to the American movie ideal of getting on your knees and presenting an expensive ring (= imitating movies is considered a sign of being immature or insincere)
As a result, anything goes as long as it has personal significance.
The majority of people opt for a plain ring or one with fake stones in the $20-$100 range.
Not a lot of people actual wear them in public.
