That sounds terrible!  I’m so sorry that happened and I feel kind of grrr that you ended up buying from that terrible guy.

I can totally relate too because I almost threw a fit at our jeweler’s.  They actually didn’t say anything offensive but they kept repeating and repeating and repeating the same stuff and pretending I hadn’t said what I’d said and it was just so frustrating.  “The important thing is that you’re happy.  We’re perfectly happy just to sell you the seeting.  But…”  Aaaaaaa…!  The issue was that their diamond prices were higher then we could get elsewhere and they didn’t have a selection of diamond in the size I wanted to look at.  Ha, kind of similar to your situation I’d say I want to look at .71 and .73 and .75 and they’d be like you won’t be able to see a difference!  and I kept repeating that I believed them but I wanted to see all of these diamonds and see those of different quality.  It was all the repetition that killed me but they had the setting I wanted.  Agh.  Sorry for hijacking your thread.  πŸ™‚

MissDoodles that’s horrible! I can’t believe how pushy they were! I’m glad BF was on your side.

I think whatever happens, you’ll be happier when you get your ring. And just put all those bad thoughts out of your mind! πŸ˜€

WOW. I get the feeling that this ‘friend’ of the family is going to be more likely to screw around with your platinum…I can’t believe it! I say tell the BF to keep that dude at bay, and then purchase the actual ring YOU want from the original jeweler.

Also don’t feel bad about the type of diamond/cut/size you want! This is YOUR ring that you get to spend the rest of your life enjoying πŸ™‚

If it’s the size you like, the way you like it – good. Outside of that tiny little white room no one’s going to be able to eyeball the quality of your stone. And if a little more coloration fits your style and ring, etc than you’ll be that much more likely to show it off!

good luck! Enjoy the pre-engagement phase πŸ™‚ I had one myself and I agree. it’s like a selfish little secret, and so much fun!
