Look what my DH suprised me with tonight!

  1. Well, the DH suprised me with a new piece of jewelery tonight. A little background might be important first. My husband's mother passed away very suddenly about a month and a half ago. My MIL and I were very close, and it really devestated both of us (sometimes I think I took it worse). Anyways, his mother was big into family, and there were no family heirlooms. My DH felt that we should create one, so he purchased me a new engagement and wedding ring.

    First the original rings (which he is going to have made into a new ring by a jeweler). This has a .5ct Marquis center stone. Fit our budget at the time, but my DH always felt bad about it.

    Well here is what he suprised me with :yahoo:

    This has a 2.58ct Princess cut center stone, and the rest of the ring has 7/8 cts. of round diamonds in it.

    More importantly, on the inside of the ring he had the following inscribed on the engagement ring: In Memory/Sue Koenig

    He then had "1960-2007" inscribed on the wedding band. This means alot to both of us, as it will remind me of his mother everytime I look at my ring. It is also our hopes that this ring can be passed to future generations.

    Here is a pick of the two rings on my finger:

    Just the new ring:

    Then, as if that was not enough, he suprised me with another gift. A 1 ct total weight Journey necklace. This he told me was his way of saying thank you for all the support I gave him during the last month and one half.
