That’s cute, but I really don’t think he’ll be upset if you wear something else. Surely he can’t actually expect you to wear a pipe crimp for more than a day??

That is the SWEETEST story. Many congratulations! My now husband proposed without a ring (during one of my visits to him while he was in grad school 23 years ago — he wanted to take advantage of the opportunity while we were in the same place) and tied a straw paper around my finger when we went to celebrate at a cafe the next day. I fully expected to be ringless for quite a while (we were long-distance as he finished up grad school ) but my mom ran out one morning and bought me a $10 costume ring from a department store so I would look engaged. Believe it or not, I got more compliments on that costume ring than I did on the real one I finally received! I totally get that the pipe fitting is uncomfortable to wear; I’m sure your fiance would understand if you’d rather wear the ruby ring or buy a cheapie in the meantime until you can get yours. Once again, congratulations! I think your marriage is one that will stand the test of time and just get better with each passing year. Much love!

Super sweet but hell no. It’s the thought that counts, I wouldn’t wear it out in public. 🙂 I don’t think he will be mad. But congrats! Now find your dream ring bee!
