Thank you for all of the advice in the past.
It’s only fair to provide you with an update: She says yes as of 10 days ago.
She is completely blown away by the ring and is beyond exciting by it and the engagement. Even with stretching my budget to just under $10k, I was worried that the ring would be a little below standard, but it looks absolutely amazing on her finger (total ct wt of e-ring is a few ticks under 2 carat) and is super eye catching! She got 2 compliments on it . One from the Starbucks cashier and from a random lady on the airplane. It gives me a sense of pride to see her so happy and shiny! I don’t think there ae many places she can wear the ring to and have people look at it as being unworthy. I had everything pre-sized so she is super happy she gets to wear the ring without having to part with it for resizing.
From how she reacted, I can tell all you waiting ladies that the excitement is worth whatever anxiety and frustration you’re dealing with (assuming the guy isn’t playing games or stringing along). She was worried I was changing my mind, but all that was replaced with joy and happiness on the day of.
Hang in there ladies!
