- Wedding: June 2014
I can’t post pictures yet, but I am in love!! SO (hasn’t proposed yet to keep some element of surprise) took me shopping last night. We went to 3 stores, only one of them actually had a quality salesperson and the more classic low-profile ring I was looking for. We looked around more but ended up coming back to that store for that ring. I’m going to vet school so I wanted something I didn’t have to take off all the time. We settled on a round cut diamond solitaire in a low-setting and medium width band. He told me later he had been planning on that exact same ring but in a half carat, because it fit his budget. (the man has taste!) I have tiny fingers (they’d probably be a 4.5 except for my bony knuckles, so 5.5 is the size i can actually get off without having to use soap) and figured that the 1/3 looked just as good, had a whiter diamond and was immensely cheaper… And I found a gorgeous sparkly (eternity?) wedding band that went well with it and I felt was worth putting aside the extra money for.
I had a bit of anxiety later about going for the smaller size because they were both gorgeous and my SO is kind of a proud guy. But I think it’ll be ok once it gets sized right and especially with that band. And he was happy anyway. If anyone wants to share their similar sized ring photos to entertain me while I wait for the proposal that would be awesome and fun 🙂 Eek!
