Bling Blings

Bee and I started talking about engagement rings after I went to Tiffany with a colleague to resize hers.

Now my boyfriend is fully aware that it's gonna be extremely difficult to pick a ring for me. Being the frigid bitch that I am, I can be very particular with details of certain things. I often have in mind an image of the exact thing I'm looking for and refuse to budge an inch.

In my defence, allow me to quote what Carrie Bradshaw said in episode 61 of Sex and the City, "But this is my engagement ring!".

It's the ring that every girl has been dreaming about since we were little. It's the ring that promises eternity and undying love. It could very well be the most important ring (along with wedding band) in a person's life. It is understandable that one has expectations, yes?

Our discussion might have put a great deal of pressure on Bee (should he ever choose to propose, of course.). Especially since I told him I once had a bad dream about receiving a bad engagement ring from him. Ha!

So, I've decided to help that clueless guy out a little. (But Bee, I'll literally hunt you down and kill you if you ended up buying my dream ring for another girl. Seriously. :|)

I've always imagined that my engagement ring will be an asscher cut diamond with a length-to-width ratio between 1.00 and 1.05, set on a four-prong solitaire platinum setting. It might seem boring to some, but the simple traditional single stone setting has an elegant and timeless charm which will never go out of style.

Actually, Bee was right on the money when he said that he should probably refer to the ring Aidan gave Carrie in SATC. Oh you sure do know me well, buddy! :P

A picture says a thousand words, they say. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the picture of the exact ring I have in mind.

Imagination can be over-perfected and unrealistic, I know. But baby, you're the dream that came true when I never thought it would, and I don't need a ring to love you more.

(I typed a really long entry and decided to erase the rest. Let this be a totally bimbotic post. We shall leave the emo stuff till another day. Cheerios!)

An asscher cut.

Another asscher cut.

Blings blings.

Oh such beautiful rings.

Disclaimer: This is not a post to pressure Bee to propose nor one to hint that he should. Just so he knows. :D
