I’m now the proud owner of the most amazing man in the world and a beautiful Verragio engagement ring.
I got up on my birthday morning to pick my boyfriend up from his night shift, we got back to my house and at around 7am he sat my in my living room and made me a green tea, handed me birthday flowers, a card, cupcakes and a Kinder Egg. (Him and I love a good Kinder Surprise egg and the part where we compete for the best toy).
So me being me, I was thinking YEAH a Kinder egg and dove straight in for it. You know what comes next…
He had spend days practicing with loads of eggs – dipping his fingers in ice water so that he didn’t melt the chocolate!! melting the egg back together and wrapping the foil around (which now by the way is no longer just a sheet of square foil – it’s two pieces folded onto each other so goodness knows how…)
I opened it to find my prize and honestly can’t remember much after that. The next thing I knew he was on one knee! Obviously I said yes.
I could write a whole essay on why we belong together but I’m sure that’s obvious – with his choice of ring! How did he even?!…
This is my perfect ring
I’m sure you’re all aware that pictures DO not do rings justice!
It is a Verragio Parisian, custom hand made and shipped to us in the UK from the US. It has .38 carat of diamons in the shoulders and a .61 VS1 3x/hearts and arrows certified H colour round brilliand cut centre diamond which I am IN LOVE WITH. Where I live this is a sizeable diamond and I know ladies on Wedding Bee have some huge rocks which are beautiful but I am a massive fan of a classic engagement ring. It is perfect for the ring and my finger.
It is in yellow gold with rose gold bands (which was customised and chosen by the FI) and two tiny blue sapphires under the diamond which is by birthstone.
I won’t go on longer because you’ll be here all day.
I am on cloud 10 and everytime I take it off to bathe and such the FI proposes again to put it back on :”) he says he wants to propose to me every day until we’re married haha. He wont shut up about wedding planning too!! What did I do to get so lucky?!
If anyone wants to share their pictures feel free :))))

Ooooooooooh that’s a gorgeous, gorgeous ring! You lucky girl! And the proposal – I seriously think that’s the best proposal story I’ve ever heard, maybe because I love Kinder Surprise eggs too 🙂 How did he ever manage to split the egg and wrap it back up is beyond me. And it’s so cute that he asks to marry him again and again! I’m jealous 😀

Thank you everyone!! 😀
@taylorkirby: 😮 😀 do you have one too? I have a question… the bottom of the ring goes to a point, if yours does too does it scratch? I’m scared of the gold catching on things and scratching beyond repair.

@natashakay: We customized my ring to have the lace shank of the Venetian with the Insignia 7060. Normally they don’t come with it. The Parisian collection has a different shank shape than mine does but I imagine it would be a similar effect. It doesn’t scratch anything as of yet. I have developed this weird comforting thing where I run my finger along the bottom and feel the bumps 🙂 When I have to hold something, or grab onto something tight I do notice it is kinda rubbing against whatever I am holding but I haven’t noticed it being too much of a problem.

@natashakay: I hate saying this, but yes, it has gotten scratched! Not in the place you would expect though! It has a small scratch in one of the grooves on the bottom! How it got there is beyond me. You can’t really see it though, just kinda feel it with your nail and perhaps if the light is right, you can see it. I am always paranoid of scratching my ring though!! I think just because it is so beautiful and I love it and it is still new I am afraid. I believe it’s tougher than I think it is.
You should post a picture of the entire profile of your ring! I want to see it! 😀
Verragio is amazing, and for me, nothing can surpass their work. 🙂

I love how the sides are like tiny stairs leading to the giant diamond! I am so excited because my DH just upgraded my ring to almost the exact same stats as your center stone and it looks GORGEOUS on your finger and its making me even more anxious to get mine!!!
