So after weeks of explaining that no, that piece of plastic on my finger is NOT what my boyfriend is using to symbolise the fact he’s asked me to marry him…my ACTUAL engagement ring has arrived. SCREAM! It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for, right? OF COURSE IT IS.
Just to recap: the lovely Katie Hillier, accessories and jewellery designer extraordinaire (see: www.hillierlondon.com), designed it after taking my (mostly wine-based) ideas and turning them into something that promised to be, basically, amazing and a little bit different. Rose gold, with diamonds and pink sapphires all the way round was what we went for – and this:
Is what arrived yesterday! (Please ignore the fact it says ‘mum’ on my hand). Here’s a close up:
I am totally, utterly in love with everything about it – the rose gold-ness, the cuteness of the pink sapphires, the way it stands out from my finger like this:
Yes, EVERYTHING. It’s totally me, totally what I wanted and I am TOTALLY besotted with it. I’ve spent most of today not doing any work and instead, just sneaking a peek every now and then like a total loser. Even my boyfriend is a little bit in love with it. Feel free to vomit now…
BUT enough from me; what do you think about my ring?!
