This morning, my BF (uh, I mean fiance
) asked me to help him with a photo shoot of the Fire Island Lighthouse (spectacular day and crystal clear views of the Atlantic Ocean). I was supposedly there to "hold the tripod". We trekked though the snow to the lighthouse and knocked on the door..there were a few volunteers inside, but they said that the lighthouse was closed to tours until noon...but they would let us go up anyway. We were escorted to the top by a volunteer tour guide who filled us in on lighthouse history etc. At the top, the guide let us go outside by ourselves. My BF told me to start taking photos..I snapped one and then turned around to find him kneeling and holding a ring box!!! His proposal was so sweet and the setting so perfectly "us" that we both cried but managed to take lots of pictures to remember the moment!!!! The folks at the lighthouse were fantastic and toasted us with a bottle of wine.

When we returned home, the house was filled with flowers. One of our good friends had worked with my BF to transport the bouquets from the florist while we were gone. He even set up a champagne bucket.. ohmygosh guys, it was the best. Still IS!! I'm FLOATING!

and OH MY, OH MY, OH MY the RING. Leon outdid himself!!!!!!!!!!!!!! heaven! I will post pictures!!!!

...guess this means I'm OFF THE LIST!!!!!!!!! But hopefully I'll still be on the "guest list" lol! Thanks to all of you who have filled my stay here with caring and thoughtful posts...

OOOOHHHHHH!!!!!!! You guys look SO happy! And the VIEW!! And all of the flowers


And the PRECIOUS!!!!

First of all, it looks massive on your hand in that adorable pic of you two, and second of all........
.....well put me right there with Lauren, because that is just THE DREAM RING!! You have just an amazing piece of art--it incorporates all of the things I love--the asscher, the fabulous pave, the cut-corner-boxter-"ballerina"-head and....the double claw prongs!!! It's just PERFECT!! Leon is just, wow. WOW!!! I think that what will henceforth be known as "The Lovey" has moved to the top of the stack of my inspiration rings.

Can't wait to see all the pics, and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!




(p.s.....is this one you can wear a wedding band with? Honestly, I think you have outdone the Daniel K!!!!!)

Congratulations and Felicitations, Lovey! It seems you received a beautiful proposal and a beautiful ring all in one day! Even better, you received the knowledge that you will spend the rest of your life with your clearly outstanding man! What could be better (certainly not that RING!)? I wish you both the very best!!!

good morning and thank you all so much!!!!
I'm about to post more pics in SMTR, but here's one more that we took last night...
This ring is so far from that simple, elegant RB solitaire in yellow gold that I orginally thought I wanted..lol! We took one look at Reena's ring and were lost..
. It may not be everyone's taste, but the ring is was beyond my wildest dreams..and of course that goes for the man too!!

WOOOOOOOOOOW! Funny, I was coming online to post my good news.. but get ths story. We went to see the "Arrrteeest" Leon this past Friday and dropped my stone off. When he brought us into his office, we interrupted a photoshoot of a lovely octagonal assher mounted ring (know who's ring this is???). Well needless to say, he opened my design form , which coincidentally has an octagonal head and said, "OH HERE, LOOK AT THIS THIS" Well, I was floored... Dre was truly outdone! Truly! He tried to contain himself when we were there... but when we left he just kept saying.

"Wow Chris. This guy is no joke."
"That ring was amazing. Love that center stone." "Wonder who's getting that bad boy, cos that thing is HUUUGGGGE."
"The detail is sick"
"Wow."
"Wow"
"Wow"

hahaha.. get the point!
So my dear, your band has striked an unreal amount of excitement out of my future hubby. Mind you this is a guy who doesnt get excited about ANYTHING. He has a rather blahh attitude. But since then, all he keeps saying is, "I can't wait now." I said to myself, " Wonder if this belongs to someone off PC." Smallworld!

Congradulations lovey! Charming story. So happy for you! And "we're" glad we got to see your ring in person. It's truly a masterpiece!
