Take me off the list, gals -- he proposed last night! After I made dinner, I was watching baseball while he did the dishes. My kitty (see avatar) came and hopped up on the couch with me. I didn''t even look at her -- there were 2 men on with 2 outs and Pat Burrell (who strands all to many baserunners) was up. The Phils hadn''t won a game yet. I was finally focused on somethiing other than where the ring was and when I''d get it. Anyway, so he comes in and sits next to me, and asks kitty if she has something to show me. I noticed she was wearing her collar (she never does in my apartment -- she is a genius at taking it off). Then I noticed the ring on her collar. I started crying. He started crying. He asked. I said yes. Kitty ran off -- and we had to chase her down to get the ring off her collar, at which point he actually did the whole down-on-one knee thing. It was very sweet, and I was very surprised. Everyone is thrilled (no one more than the two of us, although my grandma got pretty sniffly and his sister said she cried during Good Friday service after she found out). Now the waiting turns to the wedding! We have been telling people Fall 2008 -- probably October.


Thank you for all your support, and hang in there, ladies!! You are truly a wonderful bunch, and all deserve the best from the men in your life -- and I don''t just mean the rocks!

I will post pics as soon as I get them "optimized" -- whatever that means!

From the side. It is a 1.32 G SI1. My ring size is 6. It isn''t "super-ideal" by PS standards (merely a 2.6 on the HCA) but I love it!! We went to see a movie last night and it was sparkly even in the dark -- just what I wanted!

More side views... We really wanted it to have a natural, growing feel, but also look elegant and balanced. It sits pretty high, but the negative space came out great!

Oh that''s neat! I really like the organic lines of the ring. It does look very natural. It''s really interesting! You had it made custom right? It''s beautiful!

Another view. I couldn''t figure out how to re-link pics once I upload (ie: to put some in SMTR). I guess I can just go ahead and link to this thread...

I finally realized what this ring reminds me of... it has kind of a celtic feel to it. I know you were just going for a natural feel, but that''s what I think of when I see it. I guess that''s why I like it so much. I love that side view of it on your finger!

And, of course, the little queen herself, who thinks that all the excitement is about her (typical cat). I haven''t put the ring back on her collar to take a picture, FI isn''t here at the moment, and I think that''s a 2-person project!!

Congratulations! Just wanted to share that you achieved the effect you wanted, the first thing I thought was that it is almost tree-like and the diamond seems to be growing out of the setting...and then I read your post.

I adore your ring!
It reminds me of a twisted willow tree twining its way around the diamond!
So unique gorgeous, yet classic in the most unusal way

Thanks for all the good wishes! I’m so glad the tree part of it read well in the finished product -- I was nervous (if you couldn''t tell!). FI and I are of different religious backgrounds, so we felt that having a ''tree of life'' with intertwining branches really symbolized the interconnectedness and strenth of our relationship and backgrounds. I guess the biblical reference makes the timing of the proposal that much more appropriate (Good Friday in the middle of Passover!). It was also three years ago this weekend (Easter weekend in the middle of Passover) that we found our beautiful, loving kitty as a stray. She is a very important part of our little family (and knows it)!
