- Wedding: April 2018
Holy moly it’s been a whirlwind! Last Friday SO found out that the ring he had lovingly designed (and spent a pretty penny for) was a fake! What was to be my heart cut Tanzanite set on a diamond eternity band turned out to be a sham! Still upset over that!
Then SO and I went to Atlantic City on Sunday to do some retail therapy and gamble a little, while we were shopping we saw a Jewelry store and I half jokingly suggested we go in. He seemed reluctant but agreed (turns out he WANTED me to ask!) and we went in asked the sales lady if they had any Tanzanite, she pointed us to another sales lady who showed us to the case. All they had were Ovals and Trillion Cuts, sadly no Heart cuts. I wasn’t thrilled with them so we turned to leave, as we were about to walk out the door…
She asked me “What about an Amethyst?” and pulled out the most gorgeous ring I have ever seen. I stared at the Heart cut (3ct!) it was the perfect shape, gorgeous clarity and the color is def unique, because it’s not a typical Amethyst, it’s a Rose de France (which I had never heard of before, but apparently it’s a lighter stone that was used alot in the Victorian era… another plus!)
I fell in love with it, without even touching it! (I couldn’t have tried it on anyway it was set as a Size 7, and I’m a 9.5) SO took a look at it, he could tell I loved it and we bought it, while it was on sale! It cost alot less than the other ring (which I’m happy about) and it’s beautiful! While they were polishing it up to go home with us I noticed that it wasn’t white gold, like I had just assumed it was. it wasn’t until we were driving home and I looked up the information about the ring that I learned it was Rose Gold! lol I was so enamored with the stone, nothing else mattered lol
So since neither of us live that close to AC, we had to figure out where to bring this beauty to be resized. Turns out there’s one not too far from me, so SO let me take her home and bring her in to be resized, which means I’ll also be picking her up! 🙂 They said she should be done by the end of the week which is good because…
We’re going to look at Venues on Friday!!!! EEEEEE!!!!! It’s like a wedding week! I’m so happy! We’re going to look at his top 3 choices (which are all about 2 hours from here) and then at another date we’ll go look at my top 2 (we’ve been to Brunch already at my 3rd choice) and decide from there! 😀
Sorry I just had to gush!
