- Wedding: October 2012
some of you may have read that saturday was our day to go into the jeweler and show setting ideas, look at diamonds, and look @ a very special one in particular. we went to the jewelry store, and turns out our jeweler didn’t buy the estate (re: LARGE) diamond. unfortunately the owner came to pick it up 2 days before we could get there to even see it 🙁 BUT, he said it’s not over and was calling him today to offer more money (he wants to get it anyway whether we want it or not, but we were willing to go a little higher for this stone) so we have to hear from him. we may make a special trip up to see it if he gets it back, or if the owner does sell it to him. otherwise we talked about setting possibilities and design ideas. it was a disappointing trip since that diamond wasn’t there for us to see and the fact that he also didn’t have any others to show us in the original range we were looking at. i know SO e-mailed him today letting him know that he will need a diamond very soon regardless so to get on the ball! i know he is keeping things from me though, lol but i told him it would be cruel if he ended up getting the estate diamond and didn’t let me see it before he goes through with it since i know all about it!
he made mention that his whole family will make a fuss over my ring on the 4th of july when we go up to visit. lol really?? i’ll have it on my finger by then…? hmm, we’ll see. lol. i have to take everything he says with a grain of salt.
BUT in other news, my SO has accepted a new job offer (which means a pretty significant raise and almost $2k in vacation money instantly rolled into the ring fund!!!!) and he told me he is cutting off my access (lol) to his second e-mail account that i created him for job purposes a long time ago. i know he’s talking to the jeweler on that e-mail account (and maybe coordinating something else :P) but he’s getting secretive. and today when we were talking online he said he is “anxious” to “get [me] a ring”! oh, and he also really likes the tentative date i was thinking about and let me contact some churches to get started.
i am ITCHING to get going with this! i don’t think i have more than 2 months till a ring is on my finger!
