So it has been about, hmmm, 7 months since we got engaged and I still look at my hand and then continue to stare at it for quite some time haha. I hope this high never leaves!
I wanted to talk about rings today! Shopping for them, designing them, buying them, and what’s important to you? This may sort of feel like an odd topic because if you don’t have open and comfortable communication with your at the time boyfriend, this might be a weird conversation to have with them.
Having The Talk
So at one point in your relationship, for many, I would hope, you get to where you start to talk about marriage. Are you going to be together forever? Is he or she the one? Whatever. This conversation may look different for everyone though. But at one point, you will look into each other’s eyes and just know.
I mean I knew Jeisson was the one from the day we met pretty much. Sounds a little stalker like, but it happens. I’m fine with it. My point is, that I feel every girl should give their guy a hint or go shopping so he knows what she wants. I’m pretty cheap so I wanted our money to go towards a ring that I realllly loved! Why have him waste money on a ring that isn’t you?
I also made sure Jeisson knew he didn’t have to do anything anytime soon. We went ring shopping about 2-3 times. Again, MAKE IT VERY CLEAR, that this does not mean he has to propose tomorrow. Just my advice. Ha. Let’s all staaaay calm! But GOSH it was fun!
What Do You Want?
I think it is important to know what sort of style or shape you want. Like the wedding dress, you will think you like something and then try it on and its not the one. You just don’t fricken know. I knew I wanted a pear and I did love the pear, but look, I have an emerald haha
You Have Options
Most places offer payment plans, lab diamonds, cubic z’s, and various types of diamonds to give you a variety of options. Unless you’re a millionaire or love debt, you need to know these options hmmmmk? Sometimes this may get tricky since your boyfriend may not disclose how much his budget is. So, you knowing these details will guide him in the right direction. Communication.
I think my favorite part of getting wedding inspiration is spending hours on Pinterest. It helps so much to guide you in some sort of direction that fits you! Which leads me to…
After hours of being on Pinterest and doing some shopping, nothing was hitting home for me but I had several images that made my heart flutter. So, we customized and that’s where Kessler’s comes into the picture.
I think that Kessler’s has been pretty amazing throughout this whole process. They really sit down and understand you which makes it feel even more special. Jeisson and I started the process together and then I stayed out of it to make it more unique for him. I gave general directions but he really had the final say.
On top of that, they have the best warranty in the business which makes me feel that my precious creation is extremely protected. I’m so paranoid with my ring, I’m not sure why. I’m getting it sized even smaller because yes, I dropped it into the toilet haha, not sure how it happened but it did. I’ve also dropped it a few times at work, so we’ll just glue it to my finger ha
Take this ring as a symbol of my love.
I love how a ring can symbolize a lot. Its not just a material object, but a journey of love and memories of that time in our life.
Did you customize or get lucky finding the right one?
