bside - oi! You understand my hectic days then! lol
I almost gave you a beebee tiara, but you seem to have leveled out, so I will reserve judgement for now...If it makes you feel better, my FI *technically* didn't get the ring I wanted either. He had told me that I may want to get my finger sized, so I went with a friend to do so and ended up falling in love with a ring from Zales. He eventually got the details about the ring from my friend and througout the year, alluded to the fact that he knew about it and was planning on giving it to me sometime that year. Turns out he took the basic design of the ring, took it to Blue Nile, and got a similar ring. But there are differences. The center stone is smaller (Zales was .65c, BN is 0.45c), but it's significantly higher quality and clarity than the original stone I had looked at. He upgraded it to 18K gold instead of 14. The diamond sits higher up on my finger than I had originally wanted, but it sits deeper in the setting (hence, less fear about it falling out while in the lab). In the end, sure, it's not the exact ring I wanted, but I love it. I know my FI put a lot of time and thought into it, did a lot of research into what stones were best, what metal would hold up the best, etc., and he designed a ring that would be similar to the style I liked. In the end, it had a bit of me and a bit of him in it. I wouldn't trade that ring for the world.
