I'm untraditional in the sense that I don't follow vague and outdated rules for living. I'm also rather concious about the environment and my conspicuous consumption so I did not want a ring at all.
FI was determined to get me something so we agreed on a price point and that it had to be an antique ring (not canadian or whatever because that still requires tons of earth to be blown up and polluted). I gave him a few examples of what I like
and, yes, when I saw this ring I lit up and stared at it a few other times online.
I didn't think he'd actually buy me one because I wasn't thrilled about the idea and months had passed since he asked me to marry him and we booked a venue... but he surprised me!
