My Maid/Matron of Honor and absolute best friend in the world has been with her boyfriend for as long as Mr. Hedgie and I have been together. This whole wedding process was hard on her because she so badly wants to marry him but he has been telling her he isn’t ready yet. Well, he just let me know that he is in the process of making her ring and wanted my opinion!!! He gave me a picture of what it will pretty much look like. It will have her grandmothers pearl from her e-ring which my Maid/Matron of Honor has said before, absolutely has to be the “stone” in her ring. But, he is adding a diamond from his grandmothers e-ring too. It will be white gold rather than yellow like the picture and look like this. Oh, it will also have a full eternity band rather than half.
She has no idea and he still wont be 100% ready for atleast 6 months if not more. There are certain things he wants to be in place before he officially asks her. He wants to make sure he has what he needs to support her fully and that wont happen until he has his degree and is no longer in school. But… EEEEE!!!! Do you have any idea how hard this will be to keep from her? I can’t even hint! Also, this ring is SO perfect for her!!!
I just had to share in my excitement.

That ring is sooo beautiful. I can picture it in my head. I don’t know how you’re going to do it! I would be dying to tell her lol. But I’m sure I would reason with myself and realize the surprise will be much worth it for her then telling her.

Wow, I think I’d burst from not being able to tell her. The ring sounds like it’s going to be gorgeous and it’s so meaningful. I always love it when rings are or turn into family heirlooms.
