No today is not the day I am expecting a proposal or anything, but today is the day I am finally deciding to send him an email about engagement rings! 😀 I have spent the last few months obsessing over engagement rings, as we have recently been talking about getting engaged. Well about 2 months ago I fell in LOVE with this beautiful ring from Moissanite Co.
(its style eng 829 for those interested)
Our 6 year anniversary is next week and so I’ve stratigically decided to send him the email this weekend, while he is away telling him, everything I want (stone cut) and everything he gets to decide (carat size, metal).On the one hand I wanna stay hush hush about all things engagement so it’s a surprise, but on the other hand I love that it’s becoming more real and I hope this timing of being close to our anniversary will get him talking more about it. I’m just so excited!:D
Have any of you bees sent your SO emails about the ring? How did it go?

Sent 3 links from the same website in April (it seems like so long ago, and i have to remind myself it wasn’t). Then I went nutso and started laying on the pressure. Now I really want to stop. He seemed receptive then acted like the stuff I sent him were too expensive so a showed him less expensive variations on the same theme from Jared. But now I have my heart set back on the same store from the email i sent him, So I hope he goes with that. I have a feeling he will revisit the topic with me when he is ready to buy…whenever that is.
Now it seems to me….I donnow how it seems to me…I am also very hungry at the moment and am not in the best mood.

Yep, I first talked to him and said “hey I found a ring that I really like”… he jokes back “oh yeah? what kind of ring?”… “you know what I’m talking about”… and I threw in the idea that I would send him a link (no pressure) just to see what he thought of what I was thinking of. This man, by the way… is SUPER PICKY… but he sent me an email back and said “Wow, that’s awesome” which floored me. He liked something? What?
And then I just hung back a bit. Couple of months later I brought up that I wanted different side stones for “the ring” than I originally sent him. So he said just resend the email with the new link.
We talked some more and it looks like he’s decided to buy the ring now and give it to me some time after he moves in.
I was laid back about it mostly, so I think he felt good he wasn’t being pressured and could come up with his own timeline.

@tullegirl: oooh pretty! if he does get it, i’m looking forward to the pictures!! also, let us know how he reacts to the links.
the only time me and my SO ever yell at each other during an argument is when we’re hungry so i know how you feel 😛 i got mad at him because i wanted a berricle ring and it’s not expensive so why can’t he get it, yelled, cried, he popped a pizza in the oven and we cuddled.

My SO and I have a timeline of next June so I’ll have a few months to wait like you have been. Now it feels like I’m handing over the ring reigns to him and I just get to pretend to forget all about and get to be surprised when the time does come. Would you want him to talk to you more about it? My main reason for sending him an email is so he knows everything I want but I’m still kinda in the dark about it! And I hope you’ve finally gotten some food in you!!
I’m defintely trying to appear laid back and hide my immense excitement! I tried to make my email sound as non-pressurey as possible like “hey I found this ring that’s really pretty! You should save this email for when the timings right”. So lets hope that works :]
I am so in love with this ring! To the point where I have tried googling real life pictures of it to just stare at all day! So when/if I get that bad boy on my finger I will be posting TONS of pictures! And I’m not even sure if he is even gonna say anything about it, not until our anniversary next week at least… But I’ll keep you updated!
