Well, after a few weeks of waiting and worrying it wouldn’t come on time, the ring is finally in SO’s possession. However, when he sent me a picture of the box, YES-the box, that’s the only thing he agreed on to show me, i was disappointed.
I really really wanted to get the Verragio box, orange is my favorite color and it’s orange inside, but instead, the jeweller sent it in the usual mahogany box that jewelry stores have. I am beyond upset right now.
Is it normal to be upset over a box?
Well, SO said that once I see the ring, i wouldn’t even care about the box anymore. My SO is very picky, so once he said it’s beautiful, it really is beautiful.
MY orange boxxxx :((( Make me feel better, ladies.

Maybe he tricked you…. since he is teasing you with a pic…. But I wouldnt be upset, you are blessed to have a man who loved you enough to want you to be his wife and buy you a ring as a symbol of that love. I was looking at my bosses wife’s ring yestarday, she came into the office because they were going to a baseball game together, in their matching jerseys(how cute), but they have been married for almost 30 years and they are so happy. I now pay attenting to rings and I saw how small hers was… but she wears it with pride, and obviously has never upgraded because of what it represents… So I am saying all of that to say, it’s a box, and maybe he got you the Verragio ring, but look at the bigger picuture… A ring can be lost, your love should be forever.

I wouldn’t get upset just yet – it’s just a box and you are more likely to be blown away by what you see inside the box. I hope you get the ring you want. 🙂

@creeative1: That’s so sweet. It’s amazing how couples stay together that long and remain so inlove with each other. I am indeed lucky to have him, and yes, he got me a Verragio ring, that’s why I got upset when it didn’t come with the Verragio box. Jewellers put rings on wooden lacquer boxes with their name most of the time, like what I got.

@KatyYoung: I am so glad he got you what you wanted.. enjoy this time, it is exciting… I did and still do love to walk outside and look at my ring in the sunlight, there is an elevator here at work where they have mirros and my ring sparkles like crazy. Each time I look at my ring I am reminded of how much many future hubby loves me and the sacrafices he made to get me the ring, because of some personal things that were going on at the time. I am truly blessed… So enjoy your process.
