Not important at all. A lot of people don't want one, and a lot of cultures don't use them.

Interesting Topic Rose. You know, I don't have an Answer to that. Mavylyn has a Engagement Ring but she does not wear it. She is concerned she will loose it, get stolen, etc. It is keeped in a safe place at her Nanay and Tatays and she only wears it when she visits her parents, then when she returns back to work and where she lives, her Nanay puts it away for her again in a safe place. I don't think its a big deal for the CO to see it. It is optional in the I-129F to show receipts for a Ring and not required. Mavylyn is planning on wearing it to the Interview if we get that far but I know after the Interview it will go back in Nanay's safe keeping. Most Philipina's are very shy and do not flaunt jewlery anyway. In humor, Philipina's cherrish a Cell Phone. LOL. They don't care about a ring.

I don't think that should be an issue!I do not have an engagement ring and nor do I wish to have one. Just a plain bog standard wedding band on the day we get married will do me. Personally, I see it as a waste of money.I would rather keep our money to do something nice together. We will not be inviting anybody to the wedding either. It's just going to be me and him....oh and the dog of course! :lol:

There is no rule saying you must wear it, but those people will look at your finger and check the ring for purpose to make decision.

i'm just worried about it, coz someone told that during her interview the CO ask her about the ring, but i notice that most of the filipina whos engaged did not wear a ring,or during there interview they dont ask about it.. Thank u for the compliments,

Nope, I don't have one and didn't want one. No one asked about it

If you have one --there is no harm in wearing it at the interview, and also they may not ask for it . Like May/Tim said --my fiancee has an engegement ring but does not wear it to work and when she goes out since she is agraid of losing it , or for it to get stolen .Her mom keeps it in a sfe place .I will ask her to wear at her interview as further proof since we took many pics of our the engagement ceremony with some with me on my knees proposing to her :lol: But as I said it just depends on whose consular officer interviews you .

when my fiancee ask me to marry him i said yes i will, but he never gave a engagement ring to me which is not too bad for me, it doesn't matter if i have a ring or not, im just worried for something reason like this coz someone told to me that during the interview the CO ask her if she have a engagement ring thats why.. how i wish they wont ask me about it,thank u for the compliments my friend

It was not an issue, it was never even brought up. I was wearing it but never did the CO see my hands or even ask so I would assume that its not a big deal. But if youre really worried about it, buy a ring from Silverworks for less than Php500 ($10).. They will never know :)

Or this:

$9 ring, its pretty!

I have one just like it.. there are days where I don't feel safe wearing my real ring so I wear this instead, haha :) I feel naked when I don't wear a ring so during days where I am traveling (like when we went to Boracay etc) I would wear my "fake" ring :) I know its silly but sometimes in the Philippines it is a necessity!

I received my 10-year greencard (ROC) in 3 months with no interview (March-June 2013)

My husband returned from deployment 06/20/2013

My naturalization journey took 4 months (April-August 2014)

Received passport in 3 weeks (regular processing)
