Good morning bees!!!
Ok, several weeks ago, I had posted the rendering of the ring the Mr. Fishy and I had custom designed. Week before last we got a call- it’s in!!! So I just wanted to share a couple of real life pictures here because I can’t tell anyone and I’m about to explode!!
We went into the store, met with our amazing jeweler, I got to try it on, they sized it, we took a few pictures, and then they overnighted it to my best friend out of state (something about taxes). She came into the city this past Monday for a job interview, and mr. Fishy took her out for lunch to make the “exchange” and discuss how he was going to pop the question!
So now, the eagle has landed, as they say! That bad boy is hidden somewhere in our little NYC 1-bedroom apartment. We made a deal though- I got to see it when it came in, and I promised to not go looking for it. I guess now it’s just time to wait! (Hopefully not too long, he keeps hinting about wanting to be able to tell everyone when we go home to visit family for St. Patrick’s Day next month!!!)
Thanks for letting me share with you all here! Not being able to tell or show anyone is so hard, and this helps me to not spill the beans!

wow, I LOVE your ring!!! Hope it’s yours for reals soon! I’m trying to (patiently, ha) wait for the jeweler to finish my ring, so I totally understand how you feel. So hard not to tell everyone!

@love108: it is a diamond, .82 carat. I knew absoutely zero about diamonds or sizes going into this whole thing. The jeweler kept showing us different diamonds, and if my life depended on it, I couldn’t tell the difference between them. She probably could have stuck a CZ in there, and I wouldn’t have known the difference! lol
So I left the diamond picking up to him! And I love how detailed it is up close, but from a distance, it kinda blurs to look almost like it’s all one stone!
Thanks everyone! I’m doing ok with not playing hide and go seek, it’s more difficult for me to keep the secret!!!

That is one gorgeous ring! How cool that you were able to design it together! And yes, now the hard part–not looking for it AND waiting for the proposal. I hope you share the details with us when it happens!

Thanks everyone! Now he’s started teasing me, in the vein of “oh no, I forgot where I hid it!”
And yes, I will certainly post the details once it happens. 🙂
