Hey married guys.. about Diamonds you have bought

Postby MonteLDS on Fri Jun 13, 2003 9:26 pm

What kind of ring do you get the little lady. I have a Marquise Cut Diamond that I would use to ask Jen to marry me, when and if I ask her. I think I would ask her in the Early Fall. Or late Summer (like Aug/Sept)

Give it to her sooner than later.

You'll be glad you did.


Have you any ideas on how/when you'll ask her?

Well I would have to ask her dad 1st. I think I am more scared to ask him then to ask her.

But ya I have yet to find out how I would ask her.

but maybe...

I could make a scrap book of all the places that we have gone to, and things we have done. And then on the last page have a picture of the ring. and then BOOM ask her. (she likes to scrap book)

I'm with Buddha on this one, aren't you two moving a little fast? You don't want to rush marriage, believe me.

As for asking her dad first, kudos to that! It's nice to know you are an old-fashioned gentleman. :)
No, I like women.

No harm in testing the waters in looking for a diamond. Although I think to do it properly you will need to wait and get the right diamond (wait until you've paid off your education, cars, and are financially stable, then find a really gorgeous rock).

You don't want to know how much I paid for my wife's diamond. That was way way too much than a practical person should ever spend on a single small purchase.

But hey, it makes the wife really happy, so it's worth it :lol:

PS. If I were you I'd choose a classic round brilliant cut stone, with a white gold (or platinum based upon your budget) band with baggettes (spelling?) on the side. Those are really popular, and are pretty timeless as well.

PPS. I can see you've spent some hard earned dough on your PC, which is definitely the right place to throw some cash!

Holy crap! Yeah...that's what I was thinking. Well, good for you! I'm glad things went the favorable way.

My wife is a very simple woman...not into the flash at all. I remember trying to talk her into letting me get her something along the lines of a carat and a half...got a big "hell no". My mom talked with her, showed her an heirloom diamond that's been in my family for ages...round cut...1 carat. She was cool with that...thank God. :D
