- Wedding: May 2013
So many of you know of my Ering drama (before i changed my user name from mweidt07) If you dont heres a little recap….
Mr. Xray proposed March 17th, beautiful wonderful & an amazing memory I will cherish and tell my grandkids about years to come. Only problem my new bling was to big so needed to be resized, well jeweler #1 really screwed up the band when he did that and that started my rings and I’s long distance relationship between MN and NY. I have found now that is the best way to describe our relationship, it would be gone for weeks at a time to come for a visit of a few days before another problem and it would have to go back.
Well almost 6 months later Mr. Xray have had just to many problems and issues and are ready to finally call it a day. The final nail in the coffin finding out we over paid by almost 4000…. yea that was a really big blow.
We decided to go out and just do some browsing together the two of us to find out some info from other jewelers to make sure our claims where not to outlandish or insane at this point (being 6 months and still no ering to show for it) that is when we found Jeweler #2 – Bergstroms in St. Louis Park MN. I was going to keep this very professional but I feel when you get great customer service its just something that needs to be shared. To sum it up they were AMAZING!!!!
So now we get to go in on Saturday and meet with there own jeweler to custom make our very own ring, the exact way Mr. Xray wanted it to being with. Well in the joy we started looking at rings in the case and that is where a little snag was hit, I admit I was partially at fault cause I fell into a Bling Coma (i compare very much to how a kid must feel when they are in a candy store with no boundries)
Sooo many beautiful rings….. so many stules….. so much BLING!!! I admit I just started running my mouth about everything I liked or didnt like…. and talking bout a whole new ring, a whole new expiriance, a “re-do” of sorts. Not knowing till we came home that night I had hurt Mr. Xrays feelings.
For this I do feel horrible and it led to a large argument. I do love my original ring, as most of you know I have posted TONS of photos of it since I recieved it last time. I loved how Mr. Xray was old school just how I had always wanted he did it all himself, and it was beautiful! Tho even at the proposal Mr. Xray in his proposal nervs ran on and on about how it wasnt exactly what he wanted but did the best he could… ect. Which at the time in my head i was yelling “JUST SHUT UP ALREADY STOP YOUR RUINING IT!!!”
Well once we went to Bergstroms we both knew it was the way to go. I was so excited for a redo and an opportunity for Mr. Xray to get exactly what he wanted and not just have to get whats in the case like happend last time. But the snag… I ran my mouth about how i loved all these other settings that were very different from my original…. and how I was so excited for something new and fresh with out the Bad JuJu…. that he was hurt feeling like what he chose wasn’t good enough. Which wasnt the case at all!! I just was in a bling coma…. I LOVE HIM!! a Ring is just a piece of jewelery not the marriage. I want the marriage with him. Well it was a tough night cause we both are stubborn 1st born children to medium sized families and sometimes have a hard time seeing the other opinion & emotions cloud our logical sides. We both came to the agreement that I would let Mr. Xray do this all on his own and I would butt out. We both love the old school aspects of this and want that again for this ring and our “do-over” I am allowed to be there for the initial consultation cause she wants to meet both of us to get the best impression of us and what we like.
I am blessed Mr. Xray is an amazing artist and has even drawn up sketches himself of what he would like to have incorporated which to me is beyond and make s this so worth all the trouble we have gone thru. I guess my question to all you bees out there are there any that have had that issue where you went into a Bling coma at the store and ended up hurting your FIs feelings with out knowing it?? and if so what did you do to fix it??
