Ring Bling


Today I am linking up with CMae.  She is recently engaged and decided to do a link-up where us girls can talk about our favorite wedding bling, weather it is on your finger or not.

I still absolutely love my engagement ring.  It is a family heirloom on Marco's side of the family.  The center stone is the same stone his father proposed to his mother with.  {His father has since passed and she is remarried.}  

Before Marco proposed I always knew this is the diamond I was getting but was unsure of the setting I wanted.  Without me knowing Marco and his mom went to our family jeweler.  He picked out a setting he loved.  Some how my mom caught wind of this and told Marco he better take me to try on rings.  This is something I will wear for the rest of my life and she wanted me to love it.  A few weeks later he took me and I must have tried on a million settings.  After lots and lots of looking I settled on a Scott Kay Platinum setting with 5 small stones in the band on either side, it was the same one Marco picked out a couple weeks earlier. I guess he knows me pretty well!

My beauty!

Seven months later he proposed, much to my surprise.  I was completely shocked.  He had always said we would get engaged after college.  Two and a half years later we tied the knot and are living happily ever after!

The day after we got engaged...not sure what is going on with my straw hair color ;)
