The other day I came across my dream ring for sale on a diamond forum…. so I couldn’t resist showing the boy. Well… turns out he didn’t really like the ring (it was a padparadscha, round cut) because it was so different from what he thought I wanted.
So I showed him a bunch of other options that I like (pear diamonds with coloured halo) and we talked a bit about it and he said that he is more than happy for me to research rings and get an idea on what I like because it helps him in picking one.
I walked away from the computer after that, but left the windows open in case he wanted to look at them again. Well… nearly a full week later all those windows are still open!! I certainly am not closing them, but why won’t he! I think he is doing it just to mess with me!

Coming from a household that leaves pages up for weeks and months at a time – he could simply not be bothered to close them, assume you’re still looking at them, could repeatedly forget to close them. There’s a really really really good chance that since he gave you the reigns to do research he figured those screens were a part of your research and if you were done with them you’d close them. God forbid you didn’t bookmark them, he closes them thinking you don’t need them, and it turns out you can’t find them again. Just saying. 🙂 Pics?

Happy to share the links!
Unfortunately the first link was taken down (the padparadscha ring) from the site – assuming it was sold 🙁
I believe it was made by Laurie Sarah though – http://www.lauriesarahdesigns.com/ We looked quite a bit through those settings!!
This is the pear ring with the coloured halo: http://www.faycullen.com/Settings/Art-Deco-Ring-Settings/7427/ The setting is for a 2 carat diamond which I do not want at all, but I would loooooveeee a pear with a pink sapphire or morganite halo.
The other was from Bluenile which I had on my Pinterest board http://pinterest.com/pin/278589926918884802/
I would love to think he is just being nice and not closing the pages but he is constantly closing pages of things I have left up for him to look at (our house financial stuff) so I think he is just trying to drive me crazy 🙂

I think the fact that he had an open discussion about it means he is seriously thinking.
I have a feeling once we all get our proposals, we will find out they were being sneaky and planning all behind our backs and we had no idea. I KNOW this will happen to me because i am sort of oblivious haha.

Oooo…pretty rings! I love the Fay Cullen one. I’m always perusing on Etsy and see Laurie Sarah’s rings there. // I agree with Rush1986. The open discussion definitely means he is seriously considering it.

I actually just came out and asked him last night and said “You know, you can close those windows if you like.” And he said that he was just keeping them open, just in case. So I told him I would be more than happy to email him the information on those pages and what I was thinking in regards to rings.
Then I pointed out that neither of us had any idea of my ring size and a lot of the rings I like cannot be resized. So I suggested we go to a jeweller and get my size and try on a few rings which he said would be a good idea.
I have been waiting an awful long time (nearly 2 years!) so I am a bit hesitant to get my hopes up… but still! It is at least progress. He has never wanted to openly discuss rings before like this. He is a procrastinator so I cant see it happening SOON, but at least we are talking about it!
