Howdy, Bees! Happy Friday to all!
Soooo…….. Mr. BT picked up my ring on Wednesday. It is hidden somewhere in his house. He gave me a strict “no snooping” rule, but since I was off yesterday and he was at work, I couldn’t control myself and had to hunt for it.
I swear on all things I hold dear that I was NOT looking for the ring. I already know what it looks like, I just don’t know how the final product came out. What I REALLY want to see is the paperwork. I know the diamonds are GIA certified, I just wanted to get all the facts for myself. Also, the jeweler had the ring appraised and I wanted to see the value of it.
Since I personally don’t know WHO appraised the ring, after I “officially” get it, I’d like to have a second appraisal done. Has anyone else done that? Is it necessary? I mean, SO thinks it’s redundant, as it’s been done already, but I’m a nurse and am constantly preaching about second opinions hahaha. I don’t know any jewelers personally, I don’t even know where or how to have an appraisal done lol. But I think it’d be good to have a second opinion.
And I’m paranoid because I know I won’t be getting the ring for a few months, and the ring isn’t insured yet so GOD FORBID something happens to it, I will throw a fit!
But anyway…. So I was snooping for the paperwork yesterday and I checked high and low, everywhere I could think of, and didn’t find a THING. Well played, Mr. BT. He hid it very well!
So I guess I’ll just have to wait haha.
SO was so cute… He was telling me about going to pick up the ring and he said, “When Sam [the jeweler] pulled out the ring box and opened it to show me the finished product, I got the giggles.” I said, “Were they nervous giggles like ‘OMG I’m paying HOW MUCH for this?!’ or were they happy giggles?” He replies, “HAPPY giggles! I can’t wait to see your reaction when you see it.”
Ohhh lordy I hate waiting!
But anywho, there’s my update. Any advice regarding appraisals and insuring the ring would be appreciated! I’ve read some posts on here about insurance already, but if anyone has personal stories they’d like to share, I’d love to hear them! There’s no way I’m NOT insuring my ring, I just have to go through the channels, though.
Stop rambling, woman!
