- Wedding: October 2012
I am so excited right now, and I feel that I now actually have the reason to start feeling excited! He put a deposit on a ring we both chose together yesterday!
It happened after SO took me shopping again, I knew he would want me to drag me into jewellery shops, but I guess I was a bit unenthusiastic this time, as we had been looking round many many times, tried lots of rings on and it was always ‘just’ browsing. I actually told him there is only so many times you can take a girl ring shopping and still feel enthusiastic.. yes it was that many times!
Eventually we rushed round some shops then ended up back at this one jeweller where we saw this ring we both liked. I tried it on again (3rd time now), and my SO decided that was the one, and he organised a deposit on it.
Really exciting as it was a ring that we both 100% liked, and he admitted he would have picked that one before I had even seen it myself – but wanted to make sure it was what I wanted and right for me, as its a lot of money and I have to wear it forever!
Unfortunately I have no photos of my actual ring as it is a designer one off – but it is sort of like the photo below – except it is a brilliant cut solitaire diamond and a platinum ring – but it does have this awesome “suspended setting”. The diamond is set and held within the band part so not as tall, but you can see the side of the diamond fully exposed as well as the top, so it really sparkles!
The ring is currently being resized for my finger ready for next weekend – I am unsure if SO will be paying off the full amount then so after next week I could be very close to seeing that ring again!
Sorry for the long story – I guess its because I can’t tell anyone yet as 1) I have no ring and 2) he hasnt formally proposed or asked me dad. But I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders because he has put actions to words and is actually paying for a ring!
Were all smiles right now – and we both cant seem to wait to get engaged just to tell everyone – and we’ve even started talking about wedding plans! EXCITEMENT OVERLOAD!!
