that’s great! wasn’t it surreal trying on all those rings? i was unexpectedly mesmorized by the pretty sparklies when i tried on rings. you would have thought i was a contortionist the way i kept bending my arm just so i could stare at the sparkles. and yes, i also went in thinking i wanted one style but left wanting a completely different one, one the bf doesn’t like as much as i do unfortunately but he’s still willing to get one for me since i’ll be the one wearing it. lol. but i’m glad to hear your trip went well!

This does sound promising! I’m glad you got to look at rings….it’s funny how different we feel after trying them on. I remember years ago I thought I wanted an emerald cut, now I like round.

XOXO

steps forward, even if small are always good – and by the way, ring shopping isn’t such a small step!!

@Ms. Pink Scrubs: My partner is clueless too! He was looking at the catalogs and he asked why when they look exactly same is one ring $300 and another $3000. I had to explain about the carats and stuff, but I’ve left the ball in his court. The only thing I specified to him was that I didn’t want a ring that was four litte squares set to look like one big one, and that I would prefer yellow gold. He told me how he looked in the window at one jewellers and saw one he liked and then found out it cost about $25,000!

At least your BF knows now how much he needs to save and also what you like! Hopefully he does it soon!

That’s a wonderful step forward!!  And I wouldn’t say it’s a small one either.  I would be over the moon happy if my man suggested we go look at rings.  (I *refuse* to be the one to bring it up!)

I’ve done a decent amount of looking on my own, and I agree, what I thought I wanted turned out to be very different from what I actually want now.  Before I started looking, I was positive I wanted a princess cut with trillion side stones, and when I tried on a couple princess cuts I was completely underwhelmed.  Then I tried on a couple of round cuts, and now they’re all I want!
