SO wanted/wants to make it “official”, so last time I visited him, while we were at the mall, he took me to a jewelery store he had already seen. He asked to see the “alianzas”, and when the choices appeared, both of us went straight for the same design, only I first looked at the white gold version. I got convinced to use the simple gold design, and we both got fitted. These are rings that could double as wedding bands, and worn on the right during the engagement.
We liked it and ask for price, but didn’t have money then to get them. Still, it was nice that we both agreed on a choice, and, shall the money appear, buy them for us. Due to long distance, HE will wear the ring for longer than I will wear mine, but he’s OK with it. He, after all, is the one that wants it the most (the ring).
Although in my case it will likely double as wedding band, he says he doesn’t want that. Reason? He wants a big honking thick wedding band, and our design comes as a relatively thin style.
Also, after looking and choosing a style, he admitted that he had previously gone to other stores and looked at other designs, but that the style he originally wanted was out of his budget.
Oh, and it’s a simple yellow gold ring with a “striped”? design.
