It wasn't easy. Neither Dani nor I like Diamonds. You ever been to a Jewlery store? Everything has frikken diamonds in it. After my 6th store or so I finally said; "I want a Sapphire ring with no diamonds." They complied. The Saleswomen showed me some stones and actually talked me down from the pricier two I was looking at. "Too dull to stand alone", She said. I thanked her for her honesty and then asked, "what about the band?" "We'll put it in a White Gold Tiffany setting", she said. I replied: "Sounds good. What exactly is that?"
Yes, I'm kinda new at the ring thang.
She showed me an example and I fully approved.
Christmas day. The ring was not under the tree. I suspected Dani was kind of suspecting it. So I waited until we had opened all our gifts. She was looking.........slightly............like what one might look if they did not quite get what they were hoping for. Happy but she could have been happier. She went to the Kitchen and I slipped the ring box under the tree. Dani came back to the couch. I thought I might wait to see if She might discover it. But the tension was killin me. Finally:
pj: "Dani, what's that under the tree?"
Dani: "Did we forget something?"
She wasn't going to leave the couch. So while I sat kneeling next to the tree, I pulled out the ring box and the rest is too mushy for my He-man/Macho image I've cultivated on this forum.
'Tis a beautiful ring and I have fabulous taste. :D
My 2nd favorite gift? The 18yr old bottle of Macallan Scotch my fiancé got me.
A perfect match, no?
