Long time lurker who finally got some news worth signing up for.
Yesterday SO and I were getting ready to go run some errands when he stopped me as I was putting my shoes on and tells me he needs me to come over and bookmark the e-ring setting I like on his computer! I took the opportunity to tell him about moissanite and explain that Silicon Carbide looks remarkably like pure compressed Carbon and I would be fine with either since they are both sparkly. Then he may have sheepishly mentioned that there are actually two heirloom diamonds from his grandmother slotted for his and his brother engagement rings.
He might have also mentioned that he plans to make the ring purchase this month… And the ring takes a month to make… so I may have a ring on my finger in the next two months! And I may yet get a diamond even though we aren’t in a financial position for it to be reasonable (saving for a down payment for a house sucks when you’re waiting for a proposal especially when you know you won’t actually be buying the house until after the wedding).
