I got the mail yesterday and what should be in there but a coupon from Gemvara that said something like “now that you’ve experienced Gemvara, here’s 15% off” and it was addressed to my SO. Sure enough, when he saw it he confessed that my ring is from there. He was pretty miffed with their marketing department after that. He says their Customer Service is amazing, though.
Here’s the problem: he has let SO MUCH about the design of the ring slip that I’m pretty sure that if I went on the website, I could tell which was mine almost immediately. I swore to him that I wouldn’t go on the site and I’m going NUTS trying to keep that promise! I’m so anxious I peeled the shellac off my fingernails! It could be months before he proposes, Bees, help me to be strong! He said Gemvara got hit really hard by Hurricane Sandy so there could be even more of a delay. *pout*

Ahhhh!! I would have a very hard time avoiding the site after that! Whenever I feel like I’m too close to frantically asking my SO if the ring he ordered has arrived yet (which is driving him slightly crazy!), I log on to the hive and check out the ring porn.. It has kept me going so far!
Your wait is almost over!!! You can do it 🙂

You can do it! If you want this to be a surprise for you – and your SO wants you to be surprised – do whatever you can to distract yourself from going on Gemvara. How exciting though! You’re in the home stretch

I went so far as to install a site blocker on my work computer and BLOCKED Gemvara so i can never go on it at work again!

Ha ha, nice! If it were me… I’d go look at it. But don’t listen to me, I’m a terrible influence!

You are strong. My boyfriend made some comment about my christmas gift saying “It could just be something from walmart or it could be something from kay or zales”
And I know that whatever it is he got in person and there is not a zales near him, so Ive been hanging out on the kay website a lot :p

@SoobySays: Infinate strength, you have. Proud of you, am I. I completely appologied to my SO about my crazy waiting behavior and resolved to just BE COOL, damnit. But my Boyfriend or Best Friend keeps assuring me we are going to get married. and that makes me sane.
