I wish my SO wouldn’t have told me so early to start looking at rings because honestly he has gave me so much time to be picky as hell and change my mind. 5 months is the minimum amount of time he said I would be waiting and 1 year at the max. (didn’t know that until AFTER he brought up me designing my own ring) Ugh.
BUT THAT’S NOT THE POINT 🙂
The past month or so I have been going to jewelery stores, researching diamond quality like a psycho, and staring at settings until I find something that I don’t like about it. When I first started searching I knew the 4 C’s existed, but I didn’t know much about them. I was dead set on heart shape or marquise, and I HATED round. But now I am 100% sure I want a round shape. My real question here is, is anyone else so particular when it comes to the gem stone and style? Whether it be a royal blue sapphire or a fiery diamond? A halo setting or a solitaire? I feel like I am so picky and have it narrowed down so much. If my silly SO would have just picked it out himself and not asked me to design the thing I probably never would have gave it as much thought as I do now. I mean afterall, I am gonna wear this band of love forever! Did any of you bees that designed your own ring find yourself so subject to one style and one stone? I remember being happy with every stone shape and quite a few setting styles before my SO brought up me designing my own. Really I am just feeling chatty today, procrastinating to study for my anatomy and physiology exam, and I am up for friendly discussion.
