The ring was finished. I ended up changing the halo as the previous work looked a bit wonky when seen from the top, which is how most people see it anyway. Now the setting is all I wanted! Only the prongs need some work but we didn’t have time. They’ll be fixed when I come back.
Tomorrow FH and I head to Europe to our second home. I’ll stay for 5 weeks and then come back. He’ll stay until October. So now he takes the ring and I don’t see it anymore until he does whatever he has planned. He said we’ll go somewhere nice where he’ll propose and then we’ll share the news with everyone. I’m super excited because well we leave tomorrow and it’s always a nice break for me when we are there and well, let’s face it. I’m super excited because he has something special in mind to formally propose. At this point that is more of a formality because we have a date and venue booked but still!!! 😀
Now the wait. I cannot wait to wear my ring! At least he let me do a photoshoot with it .
damarajade: awesome! Post it when you get it! If you want to see more rings with spinel, go to Pricescope or Google FrekeChild and Chrono. Freke has a TON of spinel rings. She collects them. And Chrono has a big Mahenge ring that is awesome too.
So, quick spinel story… I went into Zales with my BF several months ago to get my ring size, and when I told them I wanted a spinel, the jeweler said that that spinels are “flat” stones… but they also harassed me about not wanting a diamond (just a couple reasons I will always suggest jeweler chains). Anyways! I googled Frekechild, and these are NOT flat! OMG. I can’t wait for mine
