Forever In Platinum

On Saturday we picked up my engagement ring. A while ago I insisted on no ring. But then the inner girl came out and wanted one. :) We ordered after Jeff proposed although we had picked it out many months ago. We just loved it the minute we saw it at my jeweler. It was created by a NY designer and therefore took four weeks to be made. It's official, I love it. And even though the proposal and the promise are the most important I love wearing it. I love touching it. I love looking at the intricate design. I love that it is non-traditional. I love that Jeff loves seeing me wearing it.
