Our last evening in Cape Town saw us driving up to Table Mountain to view the bay of Cape Town. Scott also sprung a proposal with the help of Ant and Cand. Scott had apparently gone to see jewellers about a ring when he arrived at Cape Town two weeks before I flew over. South Africa is known for its diamonds, but we had both expressed a personal dislike of the rock earlier in our relationship, preferring to use our astrological birthstones for a spot of colour. So it was a bit of a funny story when he came all the way to the previous stone wholesalers in this country to buy a sapphire. He even got the jeweller to custom make this double-banded design out of platinum! It’s too bad we only got the ring on the last day we were in Cape Town (after much trickery about him going to the restroom and disappearing), so we weren’t able to bring it in for a free resizing.
