Here is the last rendering. I told the rep I’d like to decode on Monday bc I can’t figure out if I want a thicker beveled edge or not. The sapphires aren’t going to be that color and neither is the center part. The center part would look more like the color of this ring.

9mm, 6 light blue sapphires, satin finish center with polished beveled edges. What do you think?

I am so grateful to have found this site – everyone is so supportive and I’m really in need of that right now. I’ve been terrrrible about bringing up the ring, but I think its coming soon, and I’m determined to let go of trying to control the situation! I’ve been much better recently.. haven’t been counting the days, but it’s been at least a week since I’ve said anything! Two of my friends from college are getting married within the next month so it’s not an easy time at all. But I’ve been keeping myself busy and distracted with other things which REALLY helps! Good luck to everyone, we can do it!!!

RobynEileen:  It’s a lot easier to keep quiet when I think he’s planning something. The only spanner in the works might be that I’m going to get hit hard financially over a couple of months so I’m hoping that doesn’t cause any delays. I’d totally get it if he did hold off (as I’m pretty certain he won’t have already bought a ring), but I’ll be very disappointed.

  • Wedding: November 2016

I’m late to the party for these two weeks. We had a lot of talking to do since the end of February, but now, knowing the ring should be on its way soon, and my SO has a plan for a proposal, and he’s telling me he’s excited, I want to dial my engagement obsession back. 

I’ll still be just as excited, but less pushy, haha. Knowing that it can/ likely will be happening soon (like, within a month) has made me wedding bananas… I actually said “But we’re not even engaged yet so we can talk about guest lists later” this morning while we were chatting. Oh gawsh. I’m getting sooooo far ahead of myself! And *that* is why I’ll be in this thread until the 15th, and then in the next one… and possibly the one after that.

Ok. So I found the ring that I love and he thinks it’s very pretty too. So now I have agreed to officially shut it up! I told him that whatever I end up saving up if I break the rules will be put towards either his ring or some form of engagement present for him. He doesn’t believe that I can keep quiet and just relax and wait. I said that if I can he’ll be getting his engagement present from dollar tree. Lol! If I can’t then how big of a grill does he want! 

Seriously though, I think the more he thinks that I can’t keep quiet the more determined I am to do so. The hard part is keeping away from the store where the ring is! I have been there 3 times to try it on!

RobynEileen: I’m going to stay quiet. He was still pushing for us to go somewhere particular in Ireland so we’ll arrange that regardless. I don’t want to ruin any surprises by letting him think I’ve cottoned on to something happening.
