Last time I posted, it was somewhat bittersweet.
Small Recap: I found the ring I loved at an antique show on mother’s day. A couple months later he went back with his mom and was going to purchase THE ring! Until, thankfully, the jewelry appraiser they brought with them said it wasn’t worth anywhere near what the people were asking for. 🙁
We found a jeweler that we really liked with GIA certified diamonds and got an estimate for how much it would cost to recreate THE ring. Only thing…it’s a whopping $2,000 price difference from the ring we were going to get in the first place.
Which brings me to today. It’s now been a couple months since we went to see the reputable jeweler and my SO hasn’t really mentioned anything about the ring. I haven’t said anything, having faith that since he was going to buy the vintage ring in the first place, that for sure he was actively saving up for the custom made ring. It was just a matter of needing more time to save up the extra money, right? Today I asked him if he had put anymore thought into the ring… He says, “I was just thinking about that at work last night, we haven’t been ring shopping since the one jeweler.” What?! I thought he knew that’s what I wanted? Then I told him that, yes, that was what I wanted. He said, “Okay, I’ll just have to save up the extra money.”
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. It was probably my fault for not really mentioning the ring or marriage because I’ve been trying to SHUT IT UP! I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t! It’s just sad that it will be pushed back even longer. I was hoping for a christmas proposal but it doesn’t look like that will be the case.
I think why it’s bothering me so much is because I allowed myself to get worked up…I really felt like it was coming soon. Any other bees go through a situation similar to this?
