1st engagement detail tended to...

We, or I guess I should say he, bought an engagement ring for me. We picked it out from a small, independent jeweler in our hometown. We were both happy to be able to support a small business and that it was in our own community was even better. I can't wait to start wearing the ring. Right now it is being put together, but it will be ready on Friday. It's a beautiful ring with a high quality diamond. I had no idea these things were so expensive or that there was so much that went in to the pricing of a diamond. Sheesh! When I was in San Francisco earlier this month we looked at Tiffany's. I had to do a lot of convincing for him not to buy a ring there, it's ridiculous how much more a ring can cost, just because it came from Tiffany's. Suffice to say, I think he still spent way more than was necessary, but I couldn't convince him otherwise. I guess I should just let it go and be happy that I will be wearing such a gorgeous ring. :)
