Hi bees. My now-FH and I just got back from vacation. We were in London, Amsterdam, and Barcelona for 10 days (about 3 days in each city) and he popped the question on our last vacation night in Barcelona! I knew the proposal was coming since we were designing the ring together, but he told me the ring wouldn’t be ready until the end of July (a little white lie), so I wasn’t expecting the proposal during this particular trip. In any case, he totally threw me off and I’m impressed that he was actually able to catch me off guard.
Here is my lovely ring that I’m absolutely in love with. I originally wanted a BE ring, but then decided to go the custom route since there wasn’t a design I saw that was “the one.” I also had originally wanted and designed a halo, but when I got the wax mold in, the halo just wasn’t for me. Instead, we decided on a princess cut solitaire with a “hidden” halo underneath (best of both worlds!) and a wraparound pave band.
Specs for anyone who wants to know: 2.5 ct. (center stone), G color, Sl1 on a size 7 finger. Not quite sure of total carat weight. Band is just over 2 mm.
