...and it was his idea! I''m floored. In a bit of shock, too. My sweetie told me on Thursday night that when he comes home for Christmas/New Year''s (in 6 days yay!) that he wants to go shopping for last minute xmas gifts so he doesn''t have to travel with them. He asked if I wanted to go with him, which of course I do, and mentioned ''Wanna pick out your ring?'' Of course he was joking, right? So I started laughing, to which he replied ''I''m serious...I want to know exactly what you like because I''m clueless about diamonds.'' I''m a bit confused, because he has an heirloom diamond that he was going to use...but lately he''s been saying he wants to pick out his own for me. So yeah, we''re going ring shopping! I don''t even know where to start. I told him if he doesn''t want me involved in buying a new diamond, I''ll direct him to my ''jewelry friends'' as he so affectionately calls us PSers, because I''m trying to get it in his head that he''ll save a bunch of money buying online. He''s nervous because he knows nothing about diamonds, so I told him I''d teach him what I know...but he''s adamant about going in to look and learn and I am not complaining at all! I have no idea where to go......but I''m so excited!!! I mentioned that Good Old Gold is an awesome place to learn and it''s about an hour away from where he lives...so he wants to go visit when I fly out in January! I don''t know what''s gotten into this guy!
