I was talking with a very good friend of ours earlier today. I’ve always thought of him as a confirmed bachelor a la George Clooney … but it seems I was wrong, so very wrong.
He’s had a girlfriend for about two and a half years and it seems that he’s ready to make it permanent. Just having the girlfriend for this long has been a record. I’ve known this guy for about 25 years and prior to this I’ve never known him to see a girl for longer than about two weeks! So you can imagine my surprise when this relationship lasted and lasted and now when he told me earlier today that he wants me help finding an engagement ring.
I think I just about fainted when he told me he was about to get engaged. He really should have told me to be sure I was sitting down. LOL
I guess sometime next week we’ll meet up and go out and look for the perfect engagement ring. I used to be a jeweler so I still have some great contacts that we can use to get him a very good deal. My husband was a jeweler as well so I’m sure he’ll have some input as well. In the meantime I told him to take a look at various Semi mount diamond ring styles to get an idea of what he thinks his fiance to be might like.
Hopefully he has an idea of what kind of style she’d like. If he really doesn’t seem to have a clue when we go out looking I might suggest that he proposes without a ring and then lets her have some input on her engagement ring. Not quite as romantic, but it’s better than totally hating your ring.
