- Wedding: September 2014
Hey bees! My SO and I have been together for a little over 3 years. We met at a bar while out with mutual friends and at the end of the night I asked for his number, and then he asked me on a date! We dated for a while and then became an official couple a few months later. We’ve now lived together for over a year and a half!
We’ve been talking about marriage for over a year because in May we graduate (we are both 26, and non-traditional students) and then he wants to get his PhD. We will be at the mercy of wherever he gets into school, so we both agreed that we should get married in Maine with our family before we move. Luckily he is taking a year off from school so we will have time to do such a thing.
A few months ago he gave me the go ahead to actually start picking out rings. I didn’t want a diamond, but he didn’t like colored gemstones, but thanks to this website we discovered moissanite and both loved it! Unfortunately no jewlers in Maine sell moissanite, and I didn’t love any of the rings from Moissaniteco.com. I’ve changed my mind a million times. We finally agreed that instead of me picking a bunch of rings for him to choose from we’d pick one together, and then he could order it whenever he wanted and then surprise me.
Well today we found a setting I LOVE and he LOVES so we have decided to order a loose stone from Moissaniteco.com and order the setting from Etsy and then have them set by a local jeweler.
SO…. without further delay:
So this is the setting, except we are doing it custom with regular prongs instead of double ,and the stone will be 1.4 carat (6.5mm) cushion cut moissanite!
I’m so overwhelmed with happiness right now! I can’t believe it’s going to be official soon that I get to marry the love of my life! AND the ring is perfect too! 🙂
