Yesterday was our Valentine’s date night, sice we didn’t see each other on the actual day. Before ehading out to dinner and a movie, we stopped by Diamonds Direct. We went once before, but it was a long time ago. I mostly just wanted to try on rings again, but it turned out to be a fantastic trip. Not only did the lady teach us about the Cs . We found the ring!!! It’s a G in color, so near colorless and…Whatever the clarity is without seeing inclusions. It’s not a giant rock like everybody else seems to have nowadays, but it’s perfect for us. It’s a .41 round solitaire in a Tiffany setting for $870. In his budget and looks giant on my size 4 finger. I fell in love with it as soon as I put it on; the sales lady said “Awww. You like it. You’re so cute.” Apparently is was very obvious that it was the one.
We said we needed to talk about it, and he pulled out his phone to check his account balance to see if he had enough to pay the down payment! I was shocked that he was willing to do it right then and there, with me standing there. We wouldn’t have had enough to go on our date, pay the down payment, and him get to work and back every day this coming week [long drive]. He said he’s going to try to go back within the week to put money down. I am beyond excited. I know I’ll have to wait for him to pay it off then wait for the proposal, but it was more than I could ask for that he was certain enough to put money down. I really believe that we’ll be engaged within a couple months. SO EXCITED!!!
