I have been with my girlfriend now for 3 years. I care about her alot and want to marry her. We go great together and love being together. I went to a jewelry store in the mall and started looking at engagement rings. I was a little surprised at how expensive they were. I wanted to get her something nice, but really can’t afford to pay $10,000 for a ring.
I decided I would look at engagement rings online. I know I have been able to get a better deal online for a lot of things and thought maybe I could find an engagement ring there that was a reasonable price.
I searched the Internet for online engagement rings and found several websites that sell them. I noticed that some of them sell diamonds, but there are others that sell cubic zirconia, white sapphires and moissanite rings. I noticed that the price on these was lower and the reviews were just as good as the ones for the diamonds. I didn’t want to get her something tacky and cheap, so I thought maybe I could bring it up in conversation and see what she wants without letting her know what I am doing.
We were together the other night after work and she started telling me that one of her friends got engaged. This worked out perfect and I didn’t need to come up with a plan to bring it up. She said that her friend got a 2 carat diamond engagement ring and it was really pretty, but she wouldn’t want a ring that big or a diamond. I asked her why she wouldn’t want a diamond and she said because of the disputes that go on because of them and they aren’t ethically sourced. This made me happy to hear because I wouldn’t need to worry about purchasing a very expensive ring. I asked her what she would want instead and she said she would love to have a ring that is white sapphire or even cubic zirconia. Just as long as it wasn’t too big.
I went back online that night and started ring shopping again. I found the perfect ring that was made of white sapphire. It was a unique ring that I knew she would just absolutely love. I went ahead and ordered it and came up with a plan about how I was going to ask her to marry me. I decided to take her to dinner the following weekend and ask her then.
I got the ring in the mail in a few days and I couldn’t wait to open it to see the quality. It was just perfect and I knew she would love it. I was a little nervous to ask her but I really wanted to get it over with.
We went to dinner and I asked her to marry me. She said yes and we are planning the wedding now. She loves her ring and said I did a great job picking one out for her.
