It’s getting real! We went out to “browse” yesterday afternoon, and came home having made a down payment on a custom ring! 😮
I am so giddy, and he is too ❤️
Based on this monster/beauty that they had in stock (this is a 9.5mm moissanite/3.5 ct equivalent! Omg) along with a few elements I like from other rings. Will be rose gold.
We also picked the stone 💎 7mm/1.25 equivalent Super Nova moissanite. I went in not knowing anything about Super Nova and being gung ho on a Charles and Colvard Forever One, but I did my research, and am stoked as hell on this stone. Cut really well, bright white, sparkles out the wazoo 🙂 Here it is in the little fake ring/stone viewer contraption they put on my finger to visualize the size. It’s set mega high in this thing, so I think it will be a slightly smaller proportion, which I am good with!
So now it is down to waiting…soonest the ring will be done is the end of July, but I will actually be out of town until the beginning of August! So it could be any time. I am crossing my fingers for before school starts up…but I am fine whenever it happens! He seems so excited and ready to go, so I have a feeling I won’t be waiting too much longer.

That’s really exciting. Not too long for you to wait now.

Congrats bee! I bought my ring over a year ago and still are waiting for it, but it’ll be worth the wait.

Ok y’all, we got to see the wax this afternoon! It is so beautiful. I can’t wait to see it in all of its glory! Jeweler says it’ll be done this week and we can pick it up then. So I’ll get to see it and then it’s going away into hiding so he can pop the question. He says he won’t quite be ready with his plans at the end of this week, but that it won’t be long after. I think August is my month ladies!

Nice!! That stone is absolutely gorgeous. I wish I could find a store that has moissanite stones in stock, never actually seen one in person. This has to be so exciting for you 😀

determinedbee : Thank you!! I nearly fell out of my chair when he told me he had more in the back to look at, I had been dying to see them in person, too! I would check with local jewelers — maybe call ahead to ask so you don’t waste time driving only to find out they don’t work with moissanite!
I am so thrilled, the ring is ready! We’re going to pick it up today!!! And then he’s hiding it until he proposes 🙂
