- Wedding: September 2009
Okay, so on July 4th I officially got engaged and I am so excited. This is the 4th ring I fell in love with. Luckily, the other rings did not work out for various reasons like my Fiance waited to order a custom piece and the girl who had all of my choices/preferences moved onto another job – that man of mine!
Well, I am happy now because this is my perfect ring. I chose this post title because I found this ring in my hometown and fell in love. It was at a specialty jewelry store and was wayyyyyyy out of our price range at over $15,000. However, I was not going to give up. So, I asked about the collection and then jumped on the web and located the company that made the ring. Luckily, they were only 1 -2 hours away and we drove to check it out in person the next day. But, even if they were across the country I would have ordered it because I already knew what it looked like on my finger.
Guess what? The company sales ring mountings and we chose our own center stone. The ring mounting itself was a fraction of the cost – and I mean a fraction (less than 1/5 the cost at the first place). And, they set the stone that we chose for only $100. I was not a part of that process, but I know my Fiance chose it and had it shipped directly to the company.
I am so happy with our choice. If I can find my camera cord, I will update with another photo showing the ring on my finger. I LOVE IT!
Okay, I will try that again – THE RING
APOLOGIES I am having trouble posting pics. I will keep trying. Sorry ladies.
Okay, so I could only post the mounting, but I will keep trying. I forgot to add that the TOTAL cost with the center stone is still well under 1/2 the cost of the ring at the original place. Hooray!
