My SO & I have been dating for almost 3 1/2 years & lived together for over 2 years. We had met with a jeweler 3-4 times in the last few months because we wanted our rings custom made. Both of our birthdays are in July so I wanted to have rubies in my engagement ring.
I knew the proposal would be happening soon & took other Bee’s advice and had my nails done . My birthday (7/27) we went to dinner at a very nice restaurant, after we placed our order he said, ‘I have something to ask you,’ I asked ‘what?’ He said, ‘would you do me the honor of becoming my wife?’ I asked, ‘forever & ever?’ He said, ‘yes.’ I asked, ‘no matter what?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ I said, ‘well of course!’
The evening was great, other guests came over to congratulate us & the restaurant gave us several glasses of complimentary champagne. It is a night & a birthday I will never forget!
We laugh when we refer to each other as fiance and fiancee & after he kisses me goodnight he then kisses my engagement ring.
Ring bling is included…my engagement ring is 14 kt gold, with a round solitaire diamond-bezel cut (a little less than a carat) with 4 princess cut rubies on each side. My current band lines up with the bezel cut perfectly…no gap. His band (no pics) has a square cut ruby (over a carat) with 4 princess cut diamonds on each side. I LOVE my engagement ring & band & his band is just as stunning! Our rings are inscribed with…Love is Patient, Love is Kind (from 1st Corinthians 13:4-8). We are already talking about changing my band in a couple of years, to 2 bands with princess cut diamonds.
These are cell phone pics…there is some glare on the pic with the band.Sorry, I’m not sure if I attached the pics the best way possible.
