So it has been a long journey to this ring. I will give you a little information:
My fiance and I have been together since highschool 2003 🙂 We have been talking about getting engaged and I am kind of a control freak and hate surprises so we decided I would help design the ring. We decided on a company called GemsNy and thought the process was fun and easy. When the ring came to the house I was a good girl and didn’t even look in the box to see the ring even though it was killing me!!! Ahhhh. So on March 13, 2013 it started out as any other day I was going to clean it was a Wednesday. We had the ring for about 2 weeks and I was wondering when he was going to pop the question. He has his own man room and stores his manly stuff in there. So I explained that I would like a couple hours to get the house in order and he was cool with that. He left the house and I went on cleaning. Got the house cleaned up and made dinner and he came home. We had an awesome dinner and got ready for the night to watch movies and relax. I was finishing up with my nightly routine when he told me he was going to get the movie ready which was totally normal. When I came into the living room he had red wine poured and chocolate put out for the two of us which wasn’t abnormal. I told him I was cold and grabbed a blanket off the back of the couch and turned around and he was down on one knee and said “Sweetie will you marry me?!” I was totally shocked and so happy!! Of course I said yes!!! We got to talking and the little sneak had hid my ring in his man room for those two weeks and if I wouldn’t have told him I was cleaning I would have found it!! So on with the story I was so pleased with the proposal I was on cloud nine!!! Well I am a nurse and I work nights so the next day at work I was looking at my ring and I thought jeeze it looks like a piece of pepper is stuck on my side diamond and I looked more and there were black dots on my diamonds and the diamonds didn’t match up to the other side of the ring and the holes on the inside of the ring were off center..BIG RED FLAG! So I started analyzing my ring and noticed the center diamond was off center and yellow…I know I did buy a J colored ring but it was REALLY yellow…then the setting wasn’t connected correctly to the crown of the ring and was slightly off centered…I was really upset..I went home and told him and I was worried he would be hurt but he was totally supportive and said “Sweetie I just want you to be happy” we sent the ring back after we talked to a GemsNy rep that didn’t even offer to fix the problem just stated that “If you bring it to a local jeweler they are going to tell you something is wrong with it” so that is when we made the decision we weren’t going to deal with them.
Now after a couple of weeks of searching for the perfect diamond and band we chose James Allen!!! They are so professional and the ring is AMAZING!! Seriously!!
