Sooooo. After six long months of diamond researching and getting cozy with our local jeweler my ring is here. We uprgraded from my original engagement ring because FI always wanted to get me something he was proud of. It was his idea, and said it would be his gift to me. So after a long process we put the ring on layaway to pay it off over time, so that we wouldn’t feel to stressed about the money. And now finally I have it. After all the searching, the waiting, and negativity from family and friends who don’t understand our decisions…. I got it this morning.
He left work early and went and paid it off and surprised me with it this morning!! Yay!!! It is everything I had ever hoped for.
Sorry if the pics are huge =)

As already stated, your ring is beautiful 🙂
I am sorry you had negative responses from others about upgrading. Upgrading is a personal decision that should only matter to you and your FI.
