Does an engagement ring have to be real?

What about a fake engagement ring from eBay?

Update:

@Robert, thanks man, good thinking.

    During the depression grooms used to marry using cigar bands. You don't really need a ring at all, either to be engaged or married. Just get something you can afford that you both like. It's the meaning attached to the thing rather than its market value that's important.

    An engagement ring can be made of gummi sweets if you really want.

    It's symbolic; it doesn't have to be a permanent thing (or anything at all; rings are optional)

    ANY item used as a symbol of a couples agreement to be married (an engagement) IS, but definition, an engagement ring.  What that item is made of, isn't relevant to the proposal or promise that is implied.  It only matters to the two people getting engaged.

    Millions of people get engaged without a ring.  Some choose to purchase a pice of costume jeweler.  Some chose an high quality synthetic stone.  Some choose a gem stone.

    Wouldn't that be awfully cheap? An engagement ring, like a wedding ring, is a modern substitute for a bride price - it's an investment in the bride's future.

    Sure.  But don't forget to get a prenup to protect your amassed wealth  If the marriage goes south you don't want to loses all those Big Mac coupons you've aquired.

    Any ring can be an engagement ring. It doesn’t have to have a diamond in it. It doesn’t have to have any gem stone in it.

    Engagement rings are 100% optional.  It can come from a gumball machine if it pleases you.
