So what is to ensue for the rest of March is a series of wedding blogs. What ring I want, what type of dress, the location and style, etc etc. My girl Alissa assures me this is not creepy at all and so I am going through with it. Judge me, love me, I care not. All I care about at the moment is WEDDINGS! Happy claps!
Hopefully, the wedding process begins with a proposal. Which centers around a ring. A big, diamond, conflict-free, ring. While in the past I have flirted with the idea of a beautiful antique vintage ring, I've decided I would never 100% love it forever. It's just not me.
These babies on the other hand...
RINGS I WANT THAT I WOULD DEFINITELY, WITHOUT A DOUBT, SAY 'YES' TO
I always thought the only ring I could ever truly love for always and eternity would be the classic solitaire, 4/6-claw, plain band Tiffany & Co ring (second from the top). However as I have matured and evolved I think I've finally settled on a cushion cut diamond with a diamond encrusted band. Specifically, as can be seen here in my dream ring (which would be accompanied by a matching band, obviously):
Swoon. Although I would say yes to any of the above variations. I would also say yes to the next few rings, even though they are not really my style. However, my style is not so resolute and exclusive that 'stupid big' does not fit into it. Voila:
DO NOT WANT: RINGS I WOULD NEVER SAY 'YES' TO, EVEN IF JAKE GYLLENHAAL WAS THE ONE PROPOSING TO ME
(Of course, it would simply be a temporary refusal, until he got me a better one. Not that he would have such awful taste)
I mean...what? On what planet are any of these rings desirable? Some of those crap rings have been designed by Neil Lane and Harry Winston. How can you get it so right and then so wrong?
Well, hopefully my future love will read this blog and will NOT get it wrong. Just remember Jakey/Eamon Sullivan: 3 carat (minimum), cushion cut, diamond encrusted band. Easy. Please, please do not deviate with fancy details. Yucky.
