I just thought I'd get that out of the way so I'm not confusing people :)
This is my BEAUTIFUL NEW BIRTHDAY PRESENT!!!
On our first Christmas together, Jesse bought me a diamond ring. It was the best gift ever! I've worn this ring for 11.5 years now and the band recently broke...it was time for an upgrade :) We made the decision a long time ago that marriage just wasn't something that was important to us. We don't plan on having a family and we're very happy with the way our relationship is :)
Last Monday we went shopping for a new ring! It's really a pretty funny experience to shop for an "engagement" ring when you're not getting engaged...LOL! When you tell the jeweler that you're looking for a diamond, they immediately congratulate you. Once you explain that you're not getting engaged...they don't really know what to say. We had fun messing with some of them...LOL :)
This is the ring we chose...isn't is stunning! I can't stop looking at my finger!!!
The center setting is actually made up of 4 separate diamonds. There are 11 more diamonds on the band surrounding the setting. I've always loved princess cut diamonds and this has 15 of them!!!
Jesse even took me to Red Lobster last night to celebrate :) I couldn't quit smiling! I've wanted an "upgrade" for a while now and this is just perfect :)
