My boyfriend and I can't see each other right now and probable not for a long time (LDR). I would really like to have a diamond ring from him, not as an engagement ring, but rather as a reminder of his love even when we can't be together.
About a year ago, I brought it up and explained what a ring meant to me (I have one from my grandma) and he kinda explained that he didn't want to give me one, because he felt it would mean more to me than it should (aka a promise of us being together...).
I let it drop but STILL really want one.
Do you think I can broach the topic again (especially with Christmas coming up and me leaving soon?) and if so, how?
Or should I just let it go? I don't think he's gonna ask me what I want (which would be a good opening), but knowing him, he's not gonna do that. sigh.
Am I just being silly here?
So it's not a money issue here.

I'd not say silly but it just doesn't make sense, why a diamond? ? A picture of him/a letter, etc, so many things can symbolize your relationship and bring a stronger and unique meaning regarding you both, that no diamond can represent. Besides that the real reminders of his love, is his behaviour, and your memories and feelings.
I think that a diamond should be an expontaneous desired and planned present from HIM, without you asking for it...what's the point on wearing a diamond when you know that your boyfriend wasn't really planning to give you, but since you mentioned it, he accepted...it's like you forcing one situation to receive this present.
Your so wanted diamond will eventually come, at the right time/moment , because this is a big step in a relationship, I mean, a diamond it's the 'engagement ring' for a reason, so don't push it! (you may freak him out lol I know if I were a man, I would felt pressed and that you were trying to rush/force things)
Anyways, all the best and good luck!0
