Today was a very happy day today, I got my dream engagement ring. The backstory behind the second engagement ring is:
My then boyfriend and I traveled to Mexico with my family and my moms half of our extended family. We had talked before we left about the fact that we would not be getting engaged in Mexico or within the next few months (we’ve been together 9 years) as we hadn’t gone ring shopping or anything. So I guess while we were there he changed his mind and knew I had previously mentioned am engagement ring with my birthstone. So he went to a jewellery store and got a Tanzanite ring as apparently this is now a December birthstone. He proposed it was amazing and quite public (very unlike him). He said right away I could pick out a different ring. I knew it wasn’t my style but thought I would learn to love it. Since December I’ve been wearing it and came to the conclusion it just wasn’t my type of ring.
So come August I started looking a moissanite rings online. I found a few i loved but didn’t know if I wanted yellow or rose gold. We went to a local store to try on yellow and rose colored rings and we both fell in love with one ring. We bought it that nihht and just got it back from being sized. I really didn’t know I could love jewellery this much as I’m just not that type. So here it is a size 5.5 yellow gold one carat solitaire:
