I've been with my lady friend for a good while now. Over a year, and we live together. Our relationship is at its BEST its ever been, we worked out everything we had problems with and for the first time in my life i feel Love.
Well enough about us, more to my question. My girlfriend has Raynaud's Disease, it causes major swelling in her hands to the point they are literally double in size, and sometimes she can't even close her fist, or hold anything after she first wakes up. During the day any cold tempratues (cold to her hands is 60°) her fingers turn the worst purple color youve ever seen. Sometimes, literally bright white, and they become numb and hurt her very badly.
She once had a ring we got in the beginning of relationship just for the sake of "having a pretty ring" if you will. She slept with it on the first night and in the morning her fingers has swelled and we had to literally use oil to try to get it off, there was no way it was budging so we had to cut it off. And this is an everyday multiple times a day problem.
Well weve been hinting around and what not about getting married. For this Valentine's day i just ordered a Kay Jewel-Jane Semore double open hearts neclace with her name engraved and her birthstone on the top heart, and my name with my birthstone on the bottom.
I was going to get this for Christmas for her but i decided to wait till Valentine's day. On Christmas we were talking and she actually said she wanted an engraved necklace with our names on it, and i was shocked i thought the same thing and almost bought one!
Well basically, is it ok to use this necklace in place of a ring and propose to her? And once we actulally pick a real date and goto get married i want her to be there to pick the"right" ring so she can get a good size and check our options out.
Is this lame or cheesy? Will i look cheap or something? Im just looking out for her best and of course i want to get engaged! How id propose is a whole other problem?

Honestly that necklace always reminds me of butts, balls or boobs.
Maybe pick a different necklace.
But since she has issues with fingers, I do think proposing with a necklace is a good idea.
@kheserthorpe had a good idea too with the ring shape but with a necklace.0
