- Wedding: October 2014
To make a long story short(er), we were interstate to collect the professional photos we had done last month, and I asked if we could stop by the store that has the ring we both love. I wanted to see if they had my size because our local store’s one is too big. The sales lady got the ring, we tried it on and….it was even bigger! She told us to wait there whil she spoke to the manager. After taking what seemed forever, she came back and said she could special order it for HALF PRICE. I just looked at SO and was like “can we? can we!?”. However the look on his face left me diappointed.
Summarising the next bit: we had an argument 🙁 he didn’t want to get it/put on a deposit while it was there/didn’t want me thinking I’d get it sooner. I told him the only reason I’d been hesitating over the ring was the price, I knew I wouldnt get it sooner and I could leave – I just wanted him to secure the price. The half-price offer sank in and we went back to the store to secure it!!!!!!!!!!! Sure, we have to pay $50 for courier since we’re interstate, but we still save a LOT.
We (will soon) have the ring we both love for a great price!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the thread of the ring. I have decided to go with it as it is (particularly for that amazing price!) and get a custom band with sapphires 🙂 http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/sapphire-or-diamond-centre-please-help-pic-heavy#axzz2RicetVo1
