Quite a few of you have asked me to share a photo of my engagement ring so here you are. I’ve had it for about 10 days now and I still can’t stop looking at it. I feel so lucky! Now we have to think about our wedding bands – how exciting! I’ve found some gorgeous rings at places like Gema & Co but I’m still yet to decide on one. I think my fiance has chosen his wedding ring though. We can’t wait to get married! I am so in love with this man that I just could not imagine my life without him. We have such an intimate, sensual and serene relationship.
When my fiancé and I used to speak about getting engaged I had always said that I wanted my ring to be a little bit different. I didn’t mean anything too ‘out there’, but just not something that every other woman in the world has. I guess I just wanted to feel different so that I felt special. I think it was that which threw Nick off a bit, as he searched for a good 5 months and still couldn’t find an engagement ring he was happy with, which is pretty sweet in itself. But then he chose a placeholder ring I absolutely adore which goes to show how well he knows me.
Choosing an engagement ring together was a pretty special experience and it was lovely for me to have a say. Before we went looking for one I had spent a lot of time browsing online. I looked up articles online that could tell me more about gemstones so that I can make a proper decision. I even read through things like a diamond 4 c chart to understand the specifications like cut and clarity of different types of diamonds. Who knew how deep and serious this gemstone business goes! There’s so much to learn about them, and it boggled my mind that jewelers actually need to know all of this stuff. Wow.
I searched for everything, from diamonds to sapphires to emeralds (which I discovered I liked a lot more than I thought). My friend told me about haruni.com and so that was where my search began, but I think by the end of it I had searched every jeweler the internet has to offer! This ring was special, though. It immediately caught my eye, and although there were a few other rings I also liked in the shops, this one really stood out to me – it was just meant to be. I love the way the 2 bands interlink and something about it reminds me of the ring Nick proposed with so it totally felt like the perfect ring. I definitely felt special. Plus I adore the sparkles! ALL the sparkles!
