The classic ring is actually only temporary. She is VERY into antiques, and art history. So, I am having a very nice antique-y ring made for her. Though it will be very understated and classic as well.
thanks for all the comments everyone.. it is so nice to hear.. even though I was very confident before and after the purchase, it is great to have a bit of confirmation that I have picked up a real gem..
hbunny- the plan right now is to propse in July (I wasnt planning on getting the diamond until april or may, but came across this one and couldnt pass it up!). The question as to if I can hold off until then is still up in the air at this point. (In fact, last night, I came home from work with the ring in its box, in my pocket, as I had to pick it up from work at the jeweler.. when I saw her at home, all I wanted to do is get down on one knee and do it right there.. lol)
