So back in May we went ring shopping! We hit a financial roadblock and the engagement ring purchase on hold.
Last night we went to a different jewellery store than the first. My bf had been asking people for references of where to go and that is where everyone told him to go. So we went shopping. The great thing about this store is that all the rings are in open cases and are made of fake diamonds and faux gold(both yellow and white). We spent a good part of an hour walking around trying on rights. Suprisingly enough, I fell in love with something very close to what I had orginally picked. It is a multi stone ring set. The engagement ring has a round .50 ct diamond with paved stones going about 1/2 way around the ring. The wedding band is a paved band with the middle of the paved part making a slight bend around where the round diamond would sit. we both really love it… and now i’m officially back to still waiting.
However, I’m now involved in the buying process because we do our finances together already and make these decisions together. WE have a slight problem and that is that it’s double our budget of what we wanted to spend so now we’re trying to figure out if we want to get that exact ring or get a smaller stone or different grade of diamond.
So i will know approximately when he will propose but i will not know the when. I’m really trying not to put pressure on him so I’ve come to the hive to share my excitment. I can’t seem to find a photo of the ring anywhere but i think it did a very good job.
