Hi ladies... I was a lurker on this board for a few week. I decided today to join you on this board. My boyfriend and I went ring shopping at Tiffany's a few weeks ago. I am absolutely and totally in love with both him and Tiffany's Round Brilliant Ribbon Ring. Somehow though, we are having so many discussions about the ring, the price of Tiffany's and so forth, that half the fun of gearing up for engagement is turning into stress. I don't want my boyfriend to spend more than he is comfortable with on our engagement, at the same time though I want him to see that this in a one in a lifetime expense. We are both well-off and in our 30's. I want a ring that is under a carat... probably around 0.7 - 0.8 carats. When we went ring shopping, he was really into it. We had a romantic evening and he loved the Ribbon Ring too. Now he keeps mentioning that maybe we should compare this with other rings. I have been looking at rings for months though, and this ring make my heart skip a beat. Hopefully this board will help me cope with the waiting and the suspense of hoping that I get the ring of my dreams! Thanks for listening.
