- Wedding: March 2013
I have been lurking and “learning” tricks for about a month now and I can officially say I am engaged!!!
I know I sound like such an ungrateful brat right now but I need an outside opinion! My FI and I together found a beautiful ring online and ordered it together. It came in and he proposed and well the ring was not what we were expecting. It was supposed to be a .90 round E, SI and a very good cut. What we got was a GH, very included with VERY visable cloud amongst other things.
We took it to a jeweler here to see if cleaning it would change anything, she showed it to us under the microscope and we both were so completly bummed to see how awful it really looked.
We are both students/full time employees and thought we got a really good deal… I work a full time for free so money is tight. The wedding is t obe planned around his break schedule and unless we wait another year we cant really afford another ring.
We have two options
#1 Send it back and buy an ASHA to replace it until we can upgrade ( which makes me so ungrateful, not to mention even though it is not very pretty I am attached
or #2 Keep it and deal with what everyone has to say… I have waited 5 years for this ring and I feel like i am not really engaged, we have been somber… I love it but it doesnt really sparkle too much because of the cloud and i am not sure I can look past it.
So basically we are engaged but havent been able to make any calls becasue we cannot figure out what to do….HELP!!!!!
