My Ring

I've got a lot more posts to write but work has been kicking my butt since we got back. They can't fire me now - who else would do this crap? But anyway, I figured my female readers would love to see my engagement ring. So here it is:






The picture doesn't do it justice, it's amazing! Heirloom diamond that has been in his family for a long time plus six little diamonds in the setting. I originally thought I wanted a solitaire setting but I'm glad he decided on this one instead - gives the ring a little extra sparkle. I still feel a little odd wearing it - like I am playing dress up - but I hope I'll get used to it.

We're going to get it sized today since it's too big. I thought I was a size 7!

Still can't believe we're engaged!!!

Congrats! It's beautiful! I'm not much of a ring gal either, and although you do get used to it, I normally take mine off when I'm at home.

Congrats! So beautiful! Try not enjoy being a bride-to-be, it's the most special time. It's nearly over for me and it;s a bit sad!

I mean 'try to enjoy being a bride-to-be', not 'try not to'.

Congratulations, I love items with history. A family diamond is special, and your fiancee was brilliant to incorporate something old with something new.

It’s beautiful, Sallie! This is absolutely not your ordinary diamond ring, as this bond embraces an essence that signifies your man’s love for you. By the way, I’ve read about your engagement ring being under repair (http://salliesniece.blogspot.com/2009/09/missing-my-engagement-ring.html). How’s it now?
