    My SO and I have been talking about getting married for quite some time. I was "accidently" browsing the internet, and found this beautiful ring set on a little shop's webpage. It was an awesome deal. I showed it to the SO, and when he saw the price he said we should go get it. We called the shop, told them we were coming, and left our number. We were half way there, and the guy called and said he sold it moments before. I was so disappointed! My SO feels terrible.

    I love vintage/antique rings. I inherited my grandmother's platinum engagement and wedding rings. There is a diamond with 2 saphires next to it. This was my grandparent's birthstones and it is also my husband and I's birthstones. I do have a modern set that my hubby bought me when we got married.

    We just got back from a wonderful afternoon. We went to this place we thought would have antique jewelry, but turns out they do southwest style and custom work. We loved the jeweler and talked to him for a while.

    Then we stopped at a pawn shop of all places. We found this BEAUTIFUL, unique ring...and got it for 200 dollars. It is brushed white gold with a raised band around the middle and a .25 ct stone, which is perfect for my little hand. 200 DOLLARS. Crazy.

    We went back to the first place, he checked the engagement ring out and said that it was all good and a good find. We then sat down with him and designed CUSTOM wedding bands!!!! I am super excited.

    Best day ever. We had our favorite New Mexican food...and we are ENGAGED!!!!
