somecallmetrutta :  aww you sound like an adorable boyfriend, soon to be fiancé! Can’t wait to see the pictures. And as a environmental scientist I also didn’t want my ring to support the diamond industry. My (then) Boyfriend or Best Friend knew that and got me a beautiful amethyst engagement ring. I think your lady will love the ring you got her and even more that you spent so long making sure it was perfect for her.

Such a pleasant post to read! Congrats on choosing the perfect ring for your lady! And yes, for some girls it is a big deal if the guy chose the ring himself (i am the one wink), you start to love it more no matter what.

somecallmetrutta :  

I agrees with   pps that you have gone about this is a really thoughtful and loving way , but I just  feel ( probably too late  now ) a bit of anxiety about 

We haven’t talked about moissanites or alternative stones but her pinterest page was full of unique rings with emeralds and such.”  but you bought a moissianite . Emeralds and other gemstones  are not simulants  , whereas a moissanite  is . This may not  be a problem at all, but I know if I had  been presented with a diamond simulant when I wanted a quirky little  emerald or  amethyst or sapphire etc.  I would  be deeply disappointed , though I would probably feel unable to tell you so  .

Also “she will be able to play it off as a diamond if she is not comfortable telling them its a moissanite”  Are you  sure she’ll feel more comfortable having to ‘pass off ‘her  engagement ring instead of proudly showing off the sort of unique ring she envisioned ? 

I do wish you both all the best though and hope it all works/worked  out well.
