The engagement ring 2

L and I have similar tastes and can usually see the attraction in something the other likes, even if it isnt something we would choose for ourselves. Where the ring was concerned, one of the reasons I wanted to get one made was to get something that she liked unconditionally rather than suprise her with one I’d bought. As it happens, the design she came up with was very similar to one I would have chosen but different in subtle details which in fact make it a better ring anyway.

For example, my instinct would have been for Palladium rather than white gold (which has a yellowish tinge rather than Palladium’s full silver); a clear, rather than champagne diamond; and to set the stone flush in the band rather than have it raised from the surface. What L has got is actually nicer for having put her own mind to it than anything I could have come up with!
