most of these are shots I snuck while she was asleep on the beach or wasn''t really looking.
That first post was sooooo sweet I just HAD to read it to my hubby to show him how cute some guys are about these things LOL But when I saw this post I just about doubled over... picturing you sneaking in "hand shots" lest your fiance be the wiser about your ps addiction LOL!!!! too funny!!! Make sure you share the bands you choose or design!!!!!! promise?

Congrats. What a beautiful ring. You two look so great together. Will she move to the US or are you going to move there?

How did you meet being so far apart?

It looks like I''m going to move there.

One of has to move, and it makes more sense that it be me, in the end.

I''m excited about it though, Australia is a beautiful country, and the people are wonderful.

Plus, the surfing''s not so hot in Manhattan.


We actually met, almost four years ago, while I was doing a master''s degree in Sydney.
I ran into her while I was shopping for shoes.

Kind of a productive trip.
got a pair of shoes,
a master''s degree,
and a girlfriend (now fiancee).

Those were the first words out of my mouth as well!
1.gif
But we had been dating for 8 years, so I guess I was a little taken aback by him *finally* asking. He proposed with a box, too ... but when he opened the box there was a sweet note saying we should pick out the ring together. (I was not a jewelry person, and we hadn''t looked at or even discussed ring styles.) A few internet searches later, and welcome to pricescope! (And now I''m a converted diamond/jewelry lover!)

Captain - Absolutely gorgeous ring (that setting it beautiful!)

and you make a gorgeous couple as well! Congrats!!!!

yeah, I was a bit nervous about doing the ring all by myself, but I felt I knew her taste pretty well.

Luckily everything turned out great, and she really loves the ring (or is doing a great job of pretending).

Everyone''s different though, I have friends who went and picked out a ring together, others who had a chat about styles and then went from there.

I didn''t have a whole lot of options, since she lives in Australia and I live in New York.

Great ring. Great proposal, but what I really love is the shot of her ring near her eye, very very old Hollywood. That is a great photograph.
