we found the ring!
it is absolutely perfect for me and I never thought I would get such a gorgeous ring! Its in our budget and meets all of my axpectations!!
my future fiance and I had decided before we started looking that we would buy the ring with our income tax. i cant justify spending that kind of money during the holidays when we both have so many other people to buy for. we also don’t want an extra bill every month either so we don’t want to finance the ring. We originally wentlooking just so he would have an idea of what I liked so that he could buy it when he could pay it in full. We didn’t think we would find the one before then. So now, basically, I am stuck waiting until at least February to get my dream ring. Ugh!!!
i have waited for this for so long so I know that a few more months won’t kill me but it is agony to have had it on my finger and now have to wait for it to be mine!! It has all become so real and I just want to talk about it with everyone but don’t want to seem snobby or annoying so I have to keep it to myself. Plus i don’t want to ruin the excitement of actually getting the ring! I just don’t know how to occupy my mind until the day comes!
What can I do to keep myself destracted until he proposed???! All I have done since we found the ring is think about it or look at the jewelers website and pictures of similar rings!
someone PLEASE share your advice on playing the waiting game!!

Girl. I have all of the feels for you. I’m kind of in the same boat where we started looking during summer and I found The Ring and have been waiting since. A several weeks ago Boyfriend or Best Friend picked up a mystery package and I thought it was the ring but time keeps passing and it’s probably not the ring but point being I am getting SO antsy. I keep starting at ring pics here on the boards and am probably insufferably suspicious about the slightest thing.
This is made worse by the fact that several close friends who have been with their SO for less time are getting engaged. Sigh. Such jelly.

Yikes. We have such a similar story. My boyfriend wanted to buy my ring next year when he gets his tax return. He, however, wanted to go ring shopping to get an idea of what I wanted. Well… that lead to him finding the diamond of his dreams HA! He could not pass up this specific diamond and knew it would be gone if we waited, so he ended up putting some down and financing the rest. I was completely against financing from the beginning. I am still against it, but we will just pay what we can through the holidays and then pay it off with his tax return. Since we got 12 months interest free it didn’t really matter if we bought it this month or next year.
So he bought the diamond and the setting Friday. The ring is supposed to be finished tomorrow, but I have a gut feeling that it won’t be ready tomorrow. So maybe since you loved it so much your boyfriend will end up getting it early! Good luck!! Keep distracted is never easy. Luckily work has been keeping me busy the past few months that we have been ring shopping. That and trying to exercise more and eat healthier in anticipation of being in pictures and a wedding dress!
