- Wedding: October 2010
When my Boyfriend or Best Friend unexpectedly proposed he presented me with a beautiful diamond ring! It was amazing when I received it. I was so happy! He told me later in the day that he purchased a loose diamond and had it mounted on a “temporary band” as he called it. He wanted me to pick out my own setting (sweet!).
Well we looked shortly after the engagement and I had no idea what I wanted. After looking a couple of times, I decided to take a break because I really didn’t need the setting until I picked out the band and we were a few months a way from that.
One day we were in the car on our way to run errands, during our ride I looked down at my ring (as I always did because I loved it) and to my horror the DIAMOND WAS MISSING! GASP!!! All I saw were these four ugly prongs sticking up at me! I was frantic. Fiance pulled the car over. We looked throught the car nothing, we turned back home to start backtracking (we didn’t live together at the time so we had to back track my walk from his apartment to mine). Still nothing. We were at the end of our search. As I was inspecting the elevator FI went ahead to start searching my apartment. When I picked my nose off the ground to head into my place I saw him standing in my doorway with the diamond in his had. It was on my kitchen counter! AHHHHH!
Long story short… got the new e-ring band, then a couple months after that I picked out my wedding band. Here’s the ring before and after.
If you’ve made it this far… thanks for reading my story! This is my first post and first ring post!
