So, finally, only 6 or so months after agreeing to marry, one of us has a ring. We finally found a ring that both of us liked and that was a reasonable price. It's 14K (585) white gold with two small sapphires and two tiny diamonds. I was doing my best to buy something without diamonds, but they are almost impossible to avoid and at least the ring is second-hand, so the diamons weren't mined recently at least.
It feels weird wearing it all the time, but I'm getting used to it. I take it off to shower and to do the dishes, as I don't want to get it covered in soap film, nor lose it down a drain! If I forget to put it back on right away, I'm starting to notice it's missing.
G. still lights up when he sees it on my finger. Bless his cotton socks.
