Had a big scare today. We’re changing my engagment ring (I’ve posted a couple of pictures on here of the old one) and I just recently received the new loose center stone diamond. It came in a temporary spring tension setting.
Today was the first sunny day since we got it, so I took it outside to see its fire and sparkle. Well, of all things to happen, my dog jumped up to play and hit the temp setting knocking the diamond out of it into the surrounding grass. I had NO idea where it could be. I wasn’t sure how far it would be able to fly with the extra propulsion the spring might provide. I was hysterical at first and started looking everywhere.
After lots of tears and 2 hours on my hands and knees seraching through mud, dog poop, grass and weeds I finally found it. HUGE sigh of relief! Just wanted to share this in case anyone ever goes through something similar. I was convinced I would never find it, and since we just got it, it hadn’t been insured yet. That little sucker isn’t going anywhere except for in the box it came in until it gets set!
