Hey ladies,

Finally decided to join PS after years of admiring your beauties from afar.

I am impatiently waiting for my ring! We’ve been together 4.5 years (I’m 26, he’s 27). It’s in the house and we picked it out together but he won’t let me see the finished ring!

It’s a GIA 2.15ct G S1 XXX on a plain platinum band. The inclusions are minor feathering near the bottom of the diamond so I’m stoked as you can’t see it unless you really squint and know it’s there. We bought it at an Aus jewellery chain (and probably paid a hefty amount to their mark-up, but my SO didn’t want to make this type of purchase online).

I am going crazy waiting... I know it’ll be in April but it’s so long away! Anyway, I just wanted to share the ring specs... and say hello!

Thank you! I’m getting worried the coronavirus may impact our little trip away in April (although it’s only a 2 hour drive away) but I will do :)

40-ish days now!

So excited for you! Your ring sounds amazing! A 2.15 carat stone is such a wonderful size. The anticipation must be driving you mad. I hope your trip isn't cancelled...you're driving so I'm thinking you'll be fine. Can't wait to see your gorgeous ring!

Thank you! 30 odd days to go. I hope I can go, but importantly I hope we get rid of this stupid virus as I’m sure it’s impacting so many engagements/weddings/honeymoons/holidays!

I am too - the new date is August because of coronavirus restrictions in Aus! But appreciate your kind words :kiss2:

I hope things get better soon. The coronavirus is really bumming things out.
On the bright side, it's only 3 months more to go out of the entire lifetime you'll be wearing the ring afterwards! :mrgreen:

Stay safe & be healthy!
