After a month of research, shopping, and more research, SO purchased the center stone last night!!! I’m so shocked/excited! It’s definitely been a process! Both of us are the types of people who research EVERYTHING to death. I would never have believed just how much education there is when it comes to a diamond. I knew some basics about the 4 C’s, but wow, I never knew just how much further it went beyond that. There were moments I thought my head would explode! Excitement, sticker shock, frustration, elation, any of which from day to day.
Even though I repeatedly told him I would be more than fine with downsizing, he stood firm that he wanted a certain sized stone of great quality. I got more and more nervous as I watched the budget grow as we became more educated. In the end it all paid off and we will have the stone in our possession TOMORROW!!!
It’s getting so close I can hardly stand it! Now he just has to finalize the purchase of the setting and then, hopefully sooner rather than later, we will be ENGAGED!
