the ring is ordered and will be here in a week or two! I am so excited. SO had an appointment to speak with a gemologist this morning to choose a diamond from the inventory of the company he bought the ring from. He sent them four potential diamonds and they did high def/magnified videos and photos for him. He picked a different price points within what we had decided was our range for colour/clarity. The lady actually told him that in person, each diamond looked identical and there was no point paying an extra $400 to upgrade if I was happy with the colour and something that was completely eye clean. He was impressed that they didn’t try to up sell and actually gave honest opinions and were so helpful. So sometime in the next month or two I will have a pretty round halo on my hand. I told him to decide between a pave band and a plain band. I think he went with plain, but we wil see soon!
I was originally wanting a completely surprise ring that he picked out ( I’m not picky and he knows me well), but he is so sweet and was so worried about making sure I got something I loved. Today he was all worried that I would be upset I knew all the details and that he had ordered it. I told him I could care less- I just want to be his wife 🙂
