This post will get buried in the deluge of Pottermania tomorrow, but I’ll never hear the end of it if I don’t put it up soon.

Folks, I’m getting married.

That’s been true for a year and five months now, but at last, two months before the wedding, I have the traditional proof. Ain’t it pretty? ^_^

The central stone is courtesy of Apollo Diamond, a company run by family friends of kniedzw, my soon-to-be better half. Djimon Hounsou’s son was not harmed in the making of this engagement ring.

    Sweet! Congratulations!

    My girlfriend and I have talked about marriage, but we want to have officially lived together for awhile before getting engaged.

    But that’s a very pretty ring, and I hope that it serves you well in the years to come. =)

    Oooh shiiiiiiny.

    When I got engaged, all of my women friends grabbed to see the ring, and none of my men friends did. So when I told my (very male physics professor) college advisor, I was extremely surprised that he immediately grabbed at my hand. “Oh, yah,” he said, “that’s a good sturdy setting. Won’t snap off when you’re down in the machine shop. Good! Congratulations!”

    Congrats on the ring and engagement. And good luck with the wedding plans.

    Felicitations on getting married, and having the ring. The design is very similar to my mother’s engagement ring, which of course I consider *the* way rings should look, but newer and shinier. Must be a classic style if it’s still good after nearly 60 years. Here’s to you still wearing yours after 60 years, too!

    Oooh, pretty! Congrats! 🙂

    Ooooooh, shiny! It’s absolutely beautiful. Being the huge jewelry geek that I am, expect quizzing on Apollo next time I see you IRL – wildly curious.
