As for the ring, yesss that’s a little blue box in his hand. Never in my wildest dreams would I ever think I’d be a Tiffany’s bride. I definitely have a soft spot for the brand (Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my all time favorite movies and my mom always had a thing for the “bean” jewelry).
But like, here’s the real irony. I tried on that same exact ring only a few weeks earlier. Like, just for fun. And it turns out I tried it on one day before he bought it.
And no – he had no idea.
“Remember that day you texted me saying you were at Tiffany’s buying an earring after work?” he said. “I had been into Tiffany’s the day before looking at rings and was planning to go back that day to buy it.”
Ummm so like it’s a good thing I texted him yapping about my earring shopping because he had to avoid avoid avoid! LOL!
While I was in Tiffany’s buying my new earring, my awesome sales associate had me try on engagement rings for fun. WHO FREAKING KNEW my future fiancé would end up buying one I tried on during a solo Tiffany’s shopping sesh. I didn’t even take any photos of what I tried on. In fact, I didn’t even tell him what rings I tried on at all.
So yeah, he popped into the store the next day – with zero knowledge of what rings I tried on or which one I liked best – and made his purchase.
If that’s not the funniest little coincidence, I don’t know what is.
But back to the ring specifics. KB picked out a beautiful oval shaped engagement ring with a beautiful halo and diamonds on the band. It’s legitimately the most sparkly thing I’ve ever seen in my life. I’m THAT obnoxious human that keeps staring at my own hand in public.
He’s such a good little human. He knew I wanted an oval shape, but that was pretty much the only info I had ever given to him. He told me over tea and eggs that chilly Paris morning after our proposal that he had been deciding between two ring options and went with the halo.
GOOD CHOICE, HONEY. Nailed it.
