Me and Alex have been planning on going to local pawn shops and jewelry stores to look at rings. For the last two weeks, something happens every time we’ve planned on going. Friday, I got called in to work early, so it was cancelled that day. Saturday he had to work late and by the time he got home, it was time for me to go to work. Today we were going to go, but he got sick. Now we’re planning on tomorrow, but I just bet something will come up, AGAIN.
I’m getting so frustrated. I just want to find my ring! Theres the two online that I love, but we both want to check local places first, just to make sure that the perfect ring isnt somewhere close by, where I can actually see it before he buys it.

@allyfally: Good luck!! Maybe these are good signs!! Maybe you were not meant to go those times and when you finally are able to go your dream ring will be waiting!!

Fate will make sure you are supposed to get the right ring when you are supposed to get it. Be patient and it will happen when it is meant to happen.

lol, Well. If fate is at work, then she is a tricky devil. We did get to go out today, BUT it would just so happen that the two main places we wanted to try were closed. Seriously, they’re open every day, except the one day I manage to go?! I still want to try them again later in the week. They’re both local places, where they hand make jewelry, so I know I would be able to find something unique there.
I did manage to find two rings that I like though.
One is a diamond flower shaped ring from a pawn shop. Fits me perfectly, too, which is rare since I wear a 9. I love it, but Alex doesnt. He doesnt like diamonds, so he really wants me to find something else to like.
The second is a blue topaz from Kmart (where we werent even expecting to find anything, we mainly stopped in so he could get a charger for his laptop.) Its around $250, plus its 60% off, so it would be a real steal. It doesnt fit me though, so I could get a real feel for it. Its quite a bit larger than I’m used to, but it was just so pretty. The main problem is that the woman couldnt guarantee that it could be resized, because its got a slight wrapping detail in the band. =/
I dont think either of these are it, though I do like them. Hopefully either Friday or Saturday we’ll get to try other places. The two local handmade places, as well as Zales and another place in the mall.
