“Ah look, Stuart, maybe you should just buy a ring now…..you could get a decent one for $300 at this price” I stated.
My sister and Stuart looked stunned.
Stuart countered that offer with, “I was planning to spend a lot more on a ring, woman”, and my sister shook her head and stated that whilst this shop did nice jewellery, you needed a ‘special’ wedding ring that stood the test of time.
It got me thinking…..she’s correct you know. If I have to wear that one ring for the rest of my life I want something elegant and beautiful, something that I can look at always and admire, and definitely something that represents the commitment.
I have to admit that the above coupled with Stuart and me talking about when we’d get married led to more investigation into the matter. I’ll further cement that stereotype (and that’s saying something, considering how non-girly I am) and admit that I want a gorgeous diamond ring.
