Sparkly!


We got engaged!!! After more than five years of dating, I think it's about time. =)

For those that are wondering, the center stone in the ring is aquamarine (my birthstone) and it has six large diamond chips, three on either side. The band is 14K white gold. It's non-traditional, and I love it. =)

Mine is a silver band with pentacles and curley cues. We ended up using it because it was the first piece of jewelry he ever bought me, so it meant a lot. I knew something was going to happen with as much as you talk about your boyfriend :) Congrats!!

WOW!!! Congrats!! Ohmahgawd! Heehee I guess it's a good thing I didn't freeload off you for New Year's plans... Chris would have to be all like "Uh... Aimee... are you going home now? I need to talk to my girlfriend and stuff..." Heeheehee!!

Richard White said...

Congratulations!

Wow, this seems to be the season for all my friends and acquaintances to get engaged.

Here's to a happy and prosperous new year to the both of you!

But...Yayayayayay!!! *happy dance* My mental vibes to Chris totally worked! I must have super powers.

And the ring is *gorgeous*. Congrats, u.

Oooh! I love weddings! My friend just got married on Saturday, and her ring belonged to her husband's great grandmother. I love yours, BTW. Have you found that you can't stop staring at it? When I first got my engagement ring, I was driving down the road and the sun kept catching on the diamond, and I was afraid I'd wreck because I couldn't stop looking at it.

Weddings are so fun!

Douglas said...

Congrats!

*sigh!* Congratulations, Jenny. What a wonderful way to start a new year!

Congrats!

barista brat said...

congrats! to you and your beau!

what a great ring!

Nonny said...

Congrats!!! :D

The ring is gorgeous... and fwiw, my wedding ring isn't traditional, either. It's silver (I can't wear gold) with a garnet stone offset by onyx on either side, and Victorian-ish edging. :)

Kelly Swails said...

CONGRATULATIONS! The ring is gorgeous, Chris did a great job. My only advice is to elope. Barring that, try to make your wedding-planning mantra "more fun, less stress."

McKoala said...

Congratulations! What a beautiful time to get engaged. (Five years though - what took you so long?!)

Joshua said...

Congrats! And Happy New Year!

Tawna Fenske said...

Woooohoooo! Congratulations! What a gorgeous ring. Wishing you a short engagement and many years of wedded bliss.

Barbara Sheridan said...

Congratulations!!!

Much happiness to you both.

The ring is beautiful.

Jenny Rappaport said...

mckoala, it largely took five years because I was still finishing up college for a good portion of those. =) I took six years to get through school, and only graduated in May 2005. Chris, on the other hand, was done in May 2002.

And you know what's the fastest way to a wedding? =) Me selling more books, to pay for it! So with that thought in mind, I'm off to start the New Year raring to go.

eleora said...

Congratulations! Wishing you a wonderful New Year and tons of fun wedding planning :)

Catherine Avril Morris said...

Jenny, that's such a gorgeous ring!! Congratulations to both of you. You're both getting a great deal in each other. :-D

Happy new year!
