Hi there! I haven''t posted much since I was added to the list but I wanted to let you guys know that I''m no longer waiting since I got engaged this weekend!! We had been shopping for settings for a month or so and I was getting really anxious about when he''d propose, how he''d propose, and of course, how the ring would look

. I didn''t realize he''d propose so quickly but so relieved that he did. He surprised me with the perfect ring and a sweet proposal...just in time for Thanksgiving with my parents. He claims he''s ''invincible'' for the next few weeks since he did such a good job and, well, I think he''s right
.



Here''s a pic of my new halo ring! I''ve never posted a pic here before so I hope it works!

Thank you!!! It's a long story but I'll try to make it quick. We met in college and a month ago he asked me to take a trip up there to watch a concert for this singing group he'd been in while we were in school. It seemed fishy and as a LIW, I found myself dreaming up all kinds of hopeful ideas. Anyway, we were having the ering custom made so I had an idea it was coming. The week before we went up to the college campus, I think he knew I was suspecting something so he had the jeweler write up a fake email that said the ring wouldn't be ready until the week after. I was so disappointed! Well, we drove to our college campus (5 hours away!) and he took me to this chapel where we were supposed to meet his friend to go somewhere for dinner. When we walked in, the singing group came out of this dark corner and serenaded us while he got down on one knee! I cried, he proposed, and put the gorgeous ring on my finger!

I don't have the specs because my FI put the cert somewhere but it's a .80, E, VS1...i think.

And a couple more pics...

Yeah, I'm so glad he did it sooner rather than later. I wasn't waiting too long...maybe a few months? Even those few months were driving me nuts so I hope you ladies don't have too much longer to wait. I think things started moving more quickly when we discussed moving in together and saving some rent :) He knew I wanted to be atleast engaged before that happened.

Oh by the way, the pics are the best I could do with my little camera. I'll try to get some better ones over thanksgiving and post them in the SMTR thread.

Thanks again for all your nice comments! He got the stone through Abazias had a custom setting made through them as well. I sent him some pics of a bunch of my favorite halo rings posted on pricescope (especially threepwood's halo ring and someone else's tacori). It turned out just the way I wanted.

Yeah, it's amazing how big the .8 looks with the halo! I love it!

Congrats! What a sweet proposal and beeeautiful ring!

Is your fiance a member of PS? I could''ve sworn I saw a guy posting on here recently about his proposal and it sounded exactly like yours! (brought his girlfriend up to college where his singing group was, and had his jeweler draft up a fake email about a ring delay)

Or am I hallucinating this??? It''s entirely possible!

Hmm...my FI did use PS quite a bit when purchasing the ring but I didn''t think he posted anything...I think I''ll search some old threads to see if I can dig up anything. I''d love to read about it if he did
Do you remember which thread you saw it in?

I''ve been wracking my brain and searching PS for like an hour and I can''t find the darn thread. But it''s possible that I read all about your proposal on your thread here and then somehow switched it around so that it was from the guy''s point of view. BUT...I coulda sworn that there was a *guy* who was talking about how he''d love to propose to his girlfriend at Thanksgiving with her family because she is very family-oriented. And he talked about getting his jeweler to send you a fake email to throw you off about the ring. It was recent too, like within the last couple weeks.

Great, I might be going crazy.

I haven''t found anything yet but it''s funny that we''re both sifting through all these threads looking for it. I''d be surprised if he posted on here since he knows how addicted I am to this site!! Don''t worry, maybe you read my thread when I first posted it and then saw it again later
...my guy didn''t tell anyone we knew about his proposal plans since he was so worried someone would tell me. He knows how curious I can be
and he was sure someone would spill the info.
