It feels like a really shitty, insensitive thing to do. The jeweller, whom we’ll call Walter, wasn’t the proper choice, but the King liked him, had some inkling of what he had been through, and decided if anyone was going to make some money, it would be Walter. JB’s father to propose to the Dowager, he went to the King to ask for permission (still a thing back then), and on the advice of the King, he also purchased a small diamond from Walter.
As time went on, Walter grew old and frail, but remained good friends with both the King and the Duke. JB was young man of 22 years, it became clear that Walter would soon be departing the world, having sold his rocks to many, many happy couples. JB decided that his future wife would also have a ring provided by Walter, and just before Walter died, Mr. The highest weight and clarity that he could afford at the time.
While I hate what the ring means to OTHER people, I love what it means to Mr. It joins me to a tradition that is both lovely and comforting. JB figured it would take me about one second to knock the stone out of regular gold claws (I can be a bit rough on my things), so he had the stone set in the hardest metal he could buy.
In general, I would say that the desire for a big engagement ring is probably a really bad sign, but I also know that the desire can come from some very deep and complicated places. How’s that for some amazing bullshit academic speak? Remarkably, I HAVE managed to put a chip in one of the claws (I banged it against a metal pole running for a train in Osaka).
A big rock means you have his balls in your purse and you get what you want, dammit!
I don’t know a single woman with a big honking diamond ring who isn’t also a complete cunt. Like this bitch: she basically harangues her soon to be husband for YEARS about her stupid ring, and then when he finally buys one, it’s too small, the wrong cut, the wrong size, blah blah blah.
And then he tucked that diamond away, and waited to meet the woman who would one day wear it.
JB and I have talked about this often, and he understands how I feel. Two great friends of ours, Gentle Giant (6’4 former varsity basketball player) and Luscious Locks (stunning Irish girl with red hair halfway down her back), have recently become engaged, and we could not be happier for the two of them.You’ll enjoy 24/7 unrestricted access to our live chat rooms services as well as browsing and connecting with singles via our vast pool of members.Free dating sites are part and parcel nowadays of how both young and mature age men and women meet.We drank pink champagne to celebrate their engagement and all the ladies lined up to admire the ring.All of which led me to start wondering: when young women are out earning their male counterparts, why is it that so many of them still expect an engagement ring?
