… to be perfect best guy I could imagine!
It happened last week but I hadn’t had the time yet to post an update as all happened so quick and now I have got a fiancé as opposed to boyfriend. It feels odd to call him that but I am so, so, so happy and over the moon that it finally happened and that we are moving forward to be husband and wife next year!
I knew it was happening but it still caught me off guard. In fact, he wanted to propose a while ago and had the ring with him when we had gone for dinner but decided against a public proposal. In the end it was a very intimate proposal at home. We had gone for dinner and upon returning home I had to use the bathroom really badly as some of the mussels didn’t go down well with me.
As soon as I walked into the living room I knew that something was going to happen but I wasn’t sure… My fiancé had lit up lots of candles and turned down the light. As I sat next to him on the sofa, cuddling up to him, I told him that this evening would have been lovely for a proposal. My words weren’t even out of my mouth when he replied that I should close my eyes.
Oh my god! The most exciting few seconds in my life! When he said that I was allowed to open my eyes again he was kneeling in front of me with an open black box and the most beautiful ring, asking me to become his wife.
Funny, it was a ring I had pointed him at but it was sold soon after I showed him, making me a bit upset that it was gone. How wrong I was doubting him picking out something beautiful! So there it is, my wonderful engagement ring – just perfect.
It is an art nouveau ring from the turn of the 20th century. It is platinum with onyx and diamonds. The middle diamond is approximately 0.53 carats, altogether the ring has just under 1 carat diamond weight. I don’t know much about the colour, clarity and cut though but I would guess it is an old European cut (considering its age) but still sparkling like crazy (the picture doesn’t do the ring any justice). I am glad I was given this precious ring which is just perfect on my hand if even not a little huge looking… Here it is:
