Honestly, as scary as it is, I would just ASK him if it affects your timeline. Seriously. Just last week my boy was unexpectedly facing having to buy a whole new car, which he wanted to pay for in cash (he was looking at super cheap ones cause we don’t know if we’ll need one next year). I found out at work and absolutedly flipped out, because I was afraid it would mess up our timeline (geting engaged in February). I was in tears all day, freaking out to my mom, my best friend, and Crebre via text (love you, girl!). Asked him later that night and he looked at me like I was INSANE and said “Of course this doesn’t change anything! Those are two totally seperate accounts”. So just ask… he might surprise you.

@iggies: Who made yours on Etsy? I’ve never even heard of white sapphires! But I like that idea, especially since I’m awfully clumsy and wouldn’t be surprised if I lost or somehow broke an expensive ring. But I have no doubt that a cheaper ring would stay safely on my finger, untouched by my clumsiness.
@crebre: I’ll have to look into that as well. I’ve just always pictured a small, round, solitaire diamond on my finger. Maybe it’s time to look at other options, though. 🙂
@KMskull: You’re absolutely right. And I’m going to talk to him about it, but he has a business trip on our date night this week so I won’t see him until this weekend. So I’m stuck freaking out over it until then. 🙂

Just wanted to chime in and send good thoughts that hopefully you’re bf won’t be laid off and your timeline won’t be affected!
My Fiance was laid off right after we had gone ring shopping and we were finally discussing moving forward with the relationship (i.e. the proposal was supposed to be soon). I was crushed. But, Fiance found a job 3 months later and since he budgeted so well, he was able to save $ while on unemployment and a week after he got the job offer, he proposed! Now, he didn’t want to propose until he knew he had a solid job, but I just wanted to share my story to let you know that it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be and it all worked out in the end! 🙂

I’m a big believer of not worrying until you have a reason to. A lot of compaines have been laying people off, but that doesn’t mean it will be your BF. I agree with KMSull, if you really want to know whether or not this will change your timeline, why not just ask him? It may also give you an opportunity to let him know that you don’t expect a huge ring.
It’ll be okay.

@Dreamer72 – this was the one i asked for:
i have accidentally seen the ring (he left it in a drawer in his desk, what could i do?? ) it’s absolutely gorgeous and i cannot wait to get it! i’m totally in love with all the jewelry that lady makes and i’m definitely going to get my wedding band from her too (when that time comes). if you’re not afraid to get palladium white gold for your engagement ring, then i’d definitely check her stuff out.

Oh I would totally peek too! Hopefully when he does get a ring, my boy knows to hide it VERY well. He’ll probably keep it at the safe at his parent’s house, because I know the combination for the safe at his house. 🙂
And thanks for the link! I’m excited to hear about other options out there. I’ve never seen white sapphires and figured anything I got that wasn’t a “real” diamond wouldn’t be as pretty… but those totally are! I’ll be looking into them for sure.
