- Wedding: May 2011
Oh, that little weasel…
He’s planning on using my great-grandma’s diamond from her engagement ring in mine, as per my request. I just got the rings today (the supposedly emerald one my parents were going on about is sapphire, if it is actually a gem – looks like costume jewelry. Pretty design, but poorly made.) So I gave my guy the engagement/wedding set – told him that if he intends to get a ring with a center diamond to use that, and if not, just to hold onto it (he has said he WILL be proposing, but is undecided on rings and not reveal timing. Aside from the now 10-month window.)
He takes the box, walks into the bedroom, and says (putting it in the questionable items drawer) that he’ll keep it there. I figured he’d have hidden it somewhere to remove the temptation of checking, but, well, at least I could take a picture of it before it was removed from the original setting, right?
So I go to take said picture… Dratted man already moved them.
On a different note, my grandma got teary eyed when I told her I’d given my SO the ring. She is VERY happy I’m using her mother’s diamond (she gave me the rings when I was 12, shortly after GG died.)
