Hi,
I know there is no engagement ring "diamond ring" tradition there in Ukraine, but what about a proposal or talking to the parents "father" for consent?? If a proposal is done are the band(s) used like a engagement ring?

Each year Ukraine is adopting more and more Western ideas and customs. I have recently become engaged myself and my fiancé insisted on engagement ring. Most Ukrainians can not afford diamond engagement ring so it is still not part of their culture, but in the class as they can afford such purchases it is becoming more and more common.

There are many stores will sell time and engagement rings to you while you're here in Kiev. Usually the selection is more expensive than you would be at home and the rings are usually of the smaller type. Most of the rings that she will see will be between $500 and $1000 but would be at half the price in the United States.

As for asking the father's permission, well that is an old traditional value and is something that would be very interesting and some of my clients have actually done this. Usually the girl is living here in Kiev and the parents live in other cities which makes it very difficult.

My fiancé's father is no longer living but I met her mother several times and became very good friends with her mother before asking her to marry me. I've long had made friends with her mother and had her permission without even asking. If the lady's parents are in Kiev and you are seriously interested in her I highly recommend meeting her parents. Taking them out to dinner would be very appropriate. All girls are influenced by her parents and you would always like to be on the good side of them
