I am so excited — SO finally went ring shopping! He told me last night. We were talking about his original 7-step proposal idea (I’ve posted about it elsewhere) and how it got ruined. He said, “I came up with a new plan, though.” So that got me excited. And then he said, “And I went ring shopping today.” My mind was blown! I had no idea he was ready to do that yet. I asked him how it went. Apparently, he has a specific design in mind that is very customized, and his preferred jeweler told him they’re not sure they can even do what he’s asking. There’s a certain feature I would like to have on my e-ring (sorry the pic is so huge!):
I am in love with the look of diamonds in the side of the band. Not the ones to the left and right of the center stone, but the ones beneath it. I LOVE that look. But apparently, that, among other things my SO wants in the ring, are a problem for his jeweler. So he’s going to ask around at some other places and see if anyone can do what he’s picturing in his head 🙂
I am beyond excited about this. I’m a little worried he’s going to spend too much money. I told him to be careful since we still have two other rings to purchase after this one! He just laughed and told me he’ll do what he wants and spend whatever he likes on me. He also said he’d like our weddings rings to be ‘blingy’ as well. I almost died laughing — if you knew him, you’d know how hilarious the word ‘blingy’ is coming out of his mouth.
Anyway I just had to come share with you all because things are finally moving! Yay! 😀

Congrats on the progress! It sounds like it won’t be too long until you’re engaged 🙂
Just curious, what is the ring in the picture? It’s very pretty.

That’s so exciting! I know I would be over the moon ecstatic if my Fiance had told me he went ring shopping when I was waiting. I hope we’ll be reading your proposal story soon 🙂

Thanks for the comments, bees! 😀 The ring in the pic isn’t exactly what I want — I want a round center stone — but it’s close!
@MissKat03: Trellis! That’s the word I was looking for! Thanks 🙂
@misskittykakes: I love when they say things out-of-character like that. Too funny!
@Goodatlove: Honestly, I don’t know where it came from. I found it on a generic google search for engagement rings. It’s pretty, though!
