So congratulations to you both , hope you the best moments with each other lucky ones ;)
So she loves the pearls, and wears them when she can! Shortly after we returned from our trip, we bought a ring. We went looking together and found a beautiful solitaire Canadian diamond. It was from one of the Northern mines I flew at during the early exploration days, so it has some meaning to me. I was also born in the North.
After all my planning why the ring? It means a great deal to her, and she wanted to wear one so she could show the world her heart belongs to me. I didn't have a problem with that.
No date for the wedding yet.
I wouldn't have been upset with a pearl necklace or a lollipop ring either. The ring isn't *really* the point, the proposal and eventual marriage is. A pearl necklace has meaning for you guys, plus on a more practical note it is something that is easy to wear (even to the wedding.) It's definitely not inappropriate.
But I can't say I wasn't really happy when he proposed with my ring. I just got married last month. This was all new to me. I never wore jewelry, so think I stared at it constantly for about two weeks.
Kat, I totally get your last paragraph here. I just got engaged on Christmas night, and it was a complete surprise! I keep looking at my hand, happily thinking, WTH? :) I'm on the older side, and have never been married, so it's a little overwhelming. :)
OP...happy your proposal went well!
