- Wedding: September 2013
It’s been two weeks since the awful discussion I had with my SO about my ring. We went last week to ShaneCo and picked out a setting I loved. We took in Grandma’s ring and they put one of similar size into the setting and it is perfect.
SO told me he wanted me to “marinate” since I’ve changed my mind so many times so we put it on layaway. Yesterday, we went back to ShaneCo with Grandma’s ring, paid in full, and extracted the diamond from the original setting! The salesman looked at the diamond and said he could hardly see any inclusions and although it is only .54 carats, it looks way bigger!
So, it’s going to be ready by Tuesday at 3pm. SO says he’s going to pick it up after work and then hide it, probably in our apartment. Lord, give me the strength to not say anything about it.
Because I ruined the first surprise (Disneyland under the fireworks) when I told him I wanted a different ring, he is now busy trying to come up with a new one. He mentioned getting both sides together and proposing to me in front of them the night before we leave for Disneyland and I said, “Noooooo.”
At this point, I know it’s coming. From, like, a mile away. I still don’t want to know the exact date and time it’s going to happen and I want it to be private. Ugh. First world problems, huh?
Did anyone else actually know or have a strong speculation?
