I can’t believe it is all finally happening, I am just beyond thrilled and excited! 😀
I had found my ddream ring online months ago an sent the link to Manfriend and then was thrilled when on Wednesday he asked me my ring size.
Unfortunately he told me that night that postage to NZ was $300NZ!!! He also said that if it was what I wanted he would get it, but I agreedd the postage was just ridiculous.
I also started to question my choice of a heart shaped ruby. I am pretty sure I will love it forever, but can’t help but wonder if maybe I will regret it in 10 years time.
So we decided to look in shops around town. He was working yesterday so Mum and I got a headstart and then this morning he thought we should get up early and go see a few shops before he opened his shop.
Well the poor Man was so overwhelmed and he seemed so uncomfortable the entire time while I was gushing away with the sales ladies.
He said to me later that he really doesn’t know anything about jewellery and was really overwhelmed and that all the rings looked the same!
So I told him that I will do all the legwork and give him details and he can choose one. Have so far got a range of $900 to $2000.
I am going antiquing tomorrow because being a pin up girl I love the idea of a vintage or antique ring.
I actually bought one today! It’s only a costume piece but I loved the unusual setting:
I love rubies an they are Manfriend’s birthstone so that is what I am after, in yellow gold.
This is all so exciting!
I do kind of wish that I didn’t have to do as much of the legwork and that he would have just taken charge and surprised me without having to talk about so much together…but as long as I get to marry the man I aore, I’m happy 🙂
