Not Engaged Yet

Just picked my ring!

Yesterday my boyfriend took me to a jewelry to pick my engagement ring. I liked the most two of the rings, one of them is very elaborated, but with a small diamond, the other is extremely simple, thin, in gold, with a rhomboid diamond... i forgot to take a pic  of it :( but i decided for the last one, its simplicity makes it very beautiful!  And I am so excited about it!

By the way... the girl in the jewelry told us that buying a trio (the engament and both wedding rings) is cheaper than just buying an engagement ring ;)

Now it's time to wait for the proposal... I have no idea when that could be. lol

    Nice to meet you too.
    When you love someone, you can tell. When you're in love with someone, everyone else can tell.

    It's hard to wait sometimes... I'm in the same boat... I picked out my ring last weekend and he bought it.  So I know he has it in his possesion.... it's just a matter of him giving it to me.

    I know he want's the moment he gives it to me to be special and somewhat of a suprise and I love that.

    So in the meantime I'm hanging out here and trying to just enjoy the time we have until the proposal.  The one thing I am trying to avoid is expecting it everytime we go out.  I don't want to miss any special moments because I'm too busy just waiting for him to give me the ring...

    Good luck and congrats on being engaged to get engaged!  :-)

    1.) A jewelry what? Store? Oh I get it.
    2.) Elaborated. Not even going to comment on this.
    3.) WTH is a rhomboid diamond??

    GREAT FIRST POST!!!!!!

    Huh, I've never heard "rhomboid" used to describe a diamond before. Usually people just say "marquis." I wonder why that is?

    In any case, that's exciting news. Enjoy this time before the proposal. It only happens once, so enjoy the anticipation while it lasts!

    Hi there, De V. There are quite a few ladies on this board who are in your shoes or have been in the past! Please feel free to introduce yourself and stick around.

    OP, in all seriousness, that is exciting and I was in your shoes in early May. BF waited almost 3 months until he proposed, but it was exciting nonetheless! Enjoy this time!!!

    Ah, this would explain the rhomboid vs marquis. Lost in translation.

    DV, mine was a serious question. I thought maybe it was a term I just hadn't heard before. :)
