Last thursday my boyfriend and I left for a small vacation to celebrate out 5th anniversary. Since we live in Texas, we drove down to see the Riverwalk in San Antonio (beautiful and fun place for anyone to visit).
After a great couple of days, we started driving back on saturday. We stopped by a huge outlet mall to check some things out and went into the Helzberg outlet store. We started looking around at everything else and eventually got to the gemstones. We had discussed the possibility of getting a gemstone instead of a diamond for an engagement ring and I wanted to show him the ones I liked.
We left the store, casually talking about rings and etc, when the punk ass says “Well, should we go back and get a ring?” My poor little heart started beating and I tried not to get too over excited. I kept asking if he was sure and he admitted he had thought of asking that weekend because of our anniversary. He had just decided against it because so many people he knew got engaged either a week before or that weekend. After talking about it some more, I had told him that if he really wanted to ask me he could do it without a ring and we could pick it out later or we could pick a ring first and he could surprise me by waiting to ask. Sadly we did not purchase a ring because he wants it to be special for us but apparently all of this started a plan in his head. On our actual anniversary (Sunday), he said that he had a plan and wanted us to talk openly about our future engagement.
Fast foward to yesterday (Monday) when I freaked out. We were cooking dinner and he brought up another person who got engaged over the weekend, saying he was glad we didn’t do it. Since her ring was a gemstone, we were discussing stones. We had originally considered a white sapphire, but he wants something real and if it’s a gemstone, wants some color. I agreed. We looked at some sapphires online. He asked me which I would want, regardless of price, a sapphire or diamond. I told him a sapphire.
So he is going to get me either a blue or purple sapphire engagement ring, has a plan regarding the ring and possibly the proposal, has connections to wholesale jewelers, and even wants to look at rings one weekend soon.
