alternatively get a beautiful big juicy colour stone, maybey her birthstone or favourite colour, in a lovely setting, which can be used as a right hand ring later and then get the e-ring you both want when the time is right.
that way she gets a beautiful large ring (if she likes big), and you still get to keep the ring for the future as a rhr for sentimentality.
Yes, the uncertainty in the economy is having an impact. I lost my engagement ring in the fall and am now planning an upgrade for my anniversary. Dh''s job, however, is in the financial sector. We don''t expect him to loose his job (but you never know) but are holding off on the upgrade until we feel more comfortable. It''s not a question of not being able to afford it but that we prefer to have the imoney in the bank in this environment.Date: 2/11/2009 2:19:23 PM
I know it sure is affecting me. My original plan was to buy a 2.0ct RB, but with the economy the way it is and the uncertainty that is out there, I am seriously considering down-sizing or worse, postpone the proposal.
