- Wedding: April 2014
So, I’ve been reading post after post for about a week now. Like, I’m seriously obsessed with these boards (I might have a problem!) It began when I found out which engagement ring from my wish list that my boyfriend had bought on Amazon. I couldn’t stop going and critiquing each ring on my list and then deleting and adding new ones. Well, once he ordered, Amazon popped up a message when I tried to click that ring and said “Someone might have already purchased this for you. Continue?” So I knew which one he ordered and the regret instantly set in. I started googling to find pictures of similar rings on fingers which is what lead me to this page.
Well, now that I’m here, oh my gosh the regret! I chose a halo style, but now I see all these beautiful solitaires. I also chose a smaller stone (the TCW is .75, including the wedding band, with a center stone of .33). And now I hear about these moissanite stones, which I was unaware of before. I could have chosen something much bigger for what he paid!
He picked the ring up from the post office today. He doesn’t know that I know what it is, and thankfully he hid it well enough that I can’t snoop! (Well, I snooped, but unsuccessfully…and I’m glad for that!)
Now the wait for the proposal. Another thing I stress about! I feel like since I picked out my own ring and I know exactly which one it is, and know that the proposal is very near, I want at least the proposal to be a surprise.
I know, I know…I need to stop looking at rings, stop focusing on all these details, and enjoy this time. But it is so hard! Hopefully it’ll be easier after he pops the question 🙂
