I write to you now as an overly excited newly-engaged woman! I can’t explain to you how excited I am. I feel like a brand new lady!
Long story short: We were in the Berkshire mountains at a friend’s country house (just the two of us). He said: “Will you be my wife?” I said: “YES! Of course!”
Now onto the bracelet part of the story—or the really BIG ring that happens to fit my wrist!
If you read my post entitled “No Ring Need…Put Some Real Estate On it” back in November, then you know that I was really waiting for him to pull out a deed to a brownstone in Harlem. Needless to say, that didn’t happen (every girl has a dream)!
But, what did happen was just as magical. My fiance (feels so cool calling him that) presented me with a beautiful rose gold and diamond bangle that he personally designed. It’s in the form of an infinity symbol to signify our never-ending love and there is also an inscription inside that reads: “To love is, to be happily ensconced in a dissonant equilibrium.” Second line: “Will you be my partner in this journey of love for life?” Don’t you just melt?
Throughout our relationship I told him that I didn’t need a diamond ring or any ring at that (note: but of course we would still get married). I have always been more interested in buying a home, so any money he wanted to put towards a ring I suggested we should save it for our future home. HOWEVER, if he felt so inclined to get me some type of jewelry my only wish was for it to be rose gold (I particular love this metal because my grandma Rosa gave me a rose gold watch on my 25th birthday and I think it looks great against all shades of skin).
Needless to say, he did a fabulous job! I’m so in love…I got my man and a beautiful bracelet as well! Life is good.
Did your significant other propose with something other than a ring? or would you be OK if he did?
