Bees, the day has come. He is actually taking me ring shopping!! We’re going to the store, together, to look at shiny rings!! I seriously wondered if I would EVER get this man into a jewlerry shop of any kind so this is exciting!!
Just have to share my glee! I’m kind of nervous though, it’s going to be really hard to find something that I like!! Although that might all change when I start looking at the real thing, not just pictures on the Internet!!
*runs around in excitement* he’s actually going to make me his wife!!!!!

Ooooh, have fun! Try on EVERYTHING, even if you are just warm to the look of something because it can look SO different on your finger. Enjoy this, and if you get any pictures to share we’d love to see them. ^.^

How exciting. Like the PP said, try on everything! Even if you have something very specific in mind, try different things.
Also, if you’re going the diamond route make sure you research, research, research! Educate yourself on the 4 C’s. Go to http://www.bluenile.com and search for loose diamonds in the categories you like (ex: round, 1 carat, VS-SI clarity, ideal-very good cut, G-H-I color, max price $4500) and get some ideas on the kinds of diamonds you might get in your price range. It helps to be very informed so that people don’t try to “pull the wool over your eyes”.
