Oh my god I’m so excited!!! I literally can’t sleep!
I don’t know if anyone saw my late follow up to my ‘ring dilema’ but basically he agreed that it would be a much better idea if I picked my own ring so that I get something I LOVE (plus I know a lot more than him about diamonds and gold etc… mainly because I’ve been waiting so long and had plenty of time to research :D)
Soo… I called Blue Nile and asked if they would do my dream ring in rose gold (I’ve recently fallen in love with it and then went to try a rose gold and was completely sold). They said yes at first but then called me up to say it they now couldn’t do anything in rose gold with diamonds 🙁 I was so crestfallen and even had a little cry… but then I started my research again and have found an even better alternative! We will still be buying the center stone from Blue Nile and then having it set as the center stone in this ring (which will be custom made with white gold prongs and a 2mm rose gold shank.. and will have a diamond center not coloured):
I was planning on researching everything and then showing him later, maybe sending him an email called ‘for your reference ;)’ but then I was showing him some new furniture online last night and the ring image just popped up on the desktop (not on purpose I swear!!!). He laughed so hard and said my look of embarrassement and confusion was priceless! I said that he ‘wasn’t meant to see that’ but he asked me why not and we went on to have a really long conversation about ring specifics and what we both liked and didn’t like. It was so constructive and relaxed and I was really interested to hear his imput. I told him that I didn’t want to pressure him too much and that I knew it wouldn’t be that soon so I was comfortable showing him rings because it’s still more of a (short term) “future plan”. He agreed but then today he mentioned that he would really really like to have both of our families together for Christmas. His parents live abroad so they have only met my mum once. I think it’s a brilliant idea and I got the feeling that he may propose then… our 3 year anniversary is on November 7th too so now it’s just a waiting game! EEK!
