How we got engaged

After we graduated we each moved home with our parents to save some money (me to Mass and him to NJ). I went to visit him for a few days in March 2010. One night after we ate dinner he asked me to go into his basement with him because he wanted to show me something. I had no clue what he was going on about but I went with him anyway. When we got into his damp, dark basement he turned on a small light on a table. He picked up a piece of wax carved into a circle and a diamond, put the diamond in a small hole in the top of the wax, put in on my finger and asked me to marry him! I was so shocked I couldn't even think straight! but of course I said yes! After hugging and some tears he explained to me that the diamond belonged to his mother, and he had met with a jeweler who gave hm tips on how to carve/design his own engagement ring. So even though the physical proposal was a little strange, I have a completely custom made ring that no one else in the world will ever have.
