Who knew that my boyfriend of 5 years carried a ring around in his pocket waiting for the perfect opportunity. We were at Feist, we had floor seats. I was totally impressed with the projector she had up. Very cute, creative and perfect for the mood. He waits for 'Secret Heart'. She doesn't play it. She goes off stage...(I don't know why they bother going off stage when we all know they are coming back on to sing the "encore" songs, and we cheer with excitement when they come back on, as if we didn't expect it.) Luckily, her second encore song was 'Secret Heart'. He says some very sweet words following them with, "will you marry me?" And I respond with, "for real?!" and then, "OF COURSE!!!!" The ring is like something I have never seen before. I have done research:
It's from the turn of the 19th century and was named in Paris, "Toi et Moi". It's a mine cut diamond with a green dementoid, which is a very rare gem mined only in the Ural mountains of Russia.
A day and half after this event, my fiancee's (that sounds weird) Dad's girlfriend comes round to congratulate us and she looks at the ring and says, "it's very beautiful, but you are wearing it on the wrong hand." Turns out, you're supposed to wear it on your left hand! Oh boy, I bet every women and her dog knew that, lol. Time to plan a wedding...this should be interesting.
