    @MissCoffeeBean:  Welcome to the ‘Bee and the waiting club!

    It sounds like you and your SO are absolutely adorable together 🙂

    Maybe you can talk to his family together as a couple and see where their mindset is. I don’t think mid 20’s is too young to get married but they probably still see him as their little 15 year old boy. Obviously, they KNOW how old he is, but they are still in that mindset.

    It reminds me of a conversation I had with my Dad once when I got my first motorcycle:

    Dad: “You’re too young to have a motorcycle!”

    Me: “But you had one when you were young?”

    Dad: “No! I was 18 when I got mine!”

    Me: “I’m 20!!”

    Dad: “Oh… that’s right…”

    Lol like how old did you think I was?? Under 18? It takes parents a while to adjust sometimes 😉

    I LOVE the second set! Just be careful with the pave stones from MoCo… There’s been a whole bunch of girls having problems with them recently!

    @MissCoffeeBean:  Just the pave stones, but yeah. There’s been a LOT of posting about that recently, and there wasn’t 6 months ago! So I think they got a bad shipment or something.

    @MissCoffeeBean:  Welcome! You’ll find lots of sympathetic bees here. I’m waiting too, and have somewhere between really soon and 5 months to wait, also. I think it might happen for me around the holidays, but I’m not sure.

    Hopefully your guy will slowly learn to force his parents to think of him as an adult! Getting married should help. ;P My parents also sometimes act as if I’m still a teenager, even though I’m 26; they like to act as if they can convince me to make different life choices than I want to, which doesn;t ever work! It’s frustrating but as long as one has a mature coping strategy it doesn’t do too much harm. Undecided

    People have definitely been having a lot of problems with moissyco’s pave stones falling out, right after they recieve the ring. I think I’ve seen mention of other sources like Better Than Diamond, and (the website that’s directly run by Charles and Colvard). I found this on the latter– they probably can do pretty much anything you would be interested in. This ring (which is like the first one you posted) is only $500!

    “I think there’s something about wanting your son to be settled in his career, before he gets married, and wanting your daughter to find a husband before she gets too old”


    I totally agree with that, I think though that they don’t realize how long it takes to get “settled” these days. Like you said, you’re both in grad school! Not as many people used to go to grad school back in our parents’ days.

    With college, grad school, “starter career jobs”, and sometimes purchasing a house, settling down can take quite a while!! Well into our 20s

    @MissCoffeeBean:  OMG so pretty how do you choose?!?  I said solitare….but I’ve just seen a LOT of halos lately so I like the idea of a solitare because they seem less common now.

    I LOVE the solitaire with pave. It looks beautiful and very elegant. I like halos on a lot of rings, but with these two I think that the solitaire will allow the cushion to really shine.

    Also, HI! I too have lurked for over a year and just joined today :p My SO just bought my ring so I felt like I should actually sign up! I’m also getting a Moissy, but on a plain band 🙂
