So for those that have been following my process, I ordered the ring in January and it finally arrived!
I ordered it from Rare Earth on Etsy and it was a great experience with Melanie! I will admit that it is different from what i imagined when I looked at the picture, but I still like it. I probably should have gone a little bigger for her size finger and gotten a larger band but I’m pleased with what I received. But honestly, I’m not sure if i’m in love with it enough to give it to her for sure…
Just as a recap, i got her a 2ct morganite with .75 carats of diamonds in a halo and down the shank. I really love it and hope she will too. I was going to propose on Sunday during our trip to a botanical gardens here in LA, but she’s come into a cold so I’ll just wait to see if she gets better or not.
I took the advice of some bees and have hidden the ring in a pair of shoes that I never wear and put then in the garage! it would suck if she finds it, but oh well lol.
for those that are wondering, the ring is on my ring finger just for show… we wear the same size ring
Let me know what you think about it because i’m still on the fence…
