- Wedding: December 2013
FI told me about ring stuff last night. at first he was going to let me stew in wonder for the sake of the surprise, but then decided that idea was too cruel and told me a lot about what he was doing while still keeping some details to himself.
detail 1: he bought an oval 0.6ct orange sapphire
detail 2: he’s having a custom sketch made at the same jeweler that made my ering and DH1 and my wedding bands years ago. this doesn’t bother me at all…they do really good work, and…
detail 3: the orignal design on the website he’s having them adapt is below…it’s pretty different from the ring DH1 had picked out for me nearly 8 years ago. he wants them to do something else besides swans on it.
he said he’ll probably show me the sketch when it’s complete, no more revisions, just to make sure i like it. once he has the ring, who knows when it will be on my finger. we don’t live together yet (and are abou 400 miles apart), and have only been together for a relatively short time, so we want to give it more time before being out in the open with this. i’ll be moving out to live with him in september, so probably a couple months after that. he’s still saving for the rest of the ring (he’s only bought the stone so far), so it will probably be a month or two before he can pay them for it anyway. i’ve told him if he gets it before he can give it to me, i don’t want to see it till i can wear it every day.
