I got engaged in August but haven’t had a chance to post about my ring yet. FH completely surprised me.
His grandma died at a fairly young age (60ish) from cancer and it really devastated his whole family. He had told me early on in our relationship that she had left his family a diamond of hers and that whichever son got engaged first would receive the diamond; this happened to be his brother, who was married in 2010.
I thought it was a sweet story and didn’t think much of it from there.
Little did I know, she had also left FH a diamond, but he wanted that to stay a complete surprise. And he did a good job as I never had any idea during the waiting/”saving” period. FH also picked out the setting and band on his own, which makes me love it that much more.
I love that my ring holds significance to his family and that I get to wear it for life!
(Sorry my nails aren’t done …) And as always ..post pics of your own rings! LOVE SEEING THEM!
