A couple months ago boy started asking for input on a ring. He made a post on Reddit looking for some direction and got in contact with Dan Moran of Concierge Diamonds based out of Los Angeles, California. We picked out the diamond together and designed my dream setting, all from across the country. Boy forwarded me a few emails to confirm the final design but I told him I did not want to know when it was done or shipped and wanted to be as surprised as possible.
Yesterday after I got home from work, we decided to go grocery shopping. We hop in the car and boy says he actually has to go to the bathroom before we leave and runs back up to the apartment. A couple minutes later he returns and starts backing the car out of the parking lot. He reaches over and pops open the glovebox and I notice a bag of Crazy Bones (I told him these were a favorite childhood toy/collectible of mine when we first started dating and ever since he has surprised me with bags here and there periodically). So still nothing seeming out of the ordinary. I open the bag and immediately notice something sparkly! I lose my shit. “What?! Now?! In the car?!” He asks, “So is that a yes?” All while still driving. I say yes more times than is necessary and proceed to giggle scream all the way home. He turns the car around and says we are not actually going grocery shopping because we have fancy dinner reservations and I need to go get pretty. We walk back up to the apartment where there are now rose petals scattered everywhere and a bottle of wine is waiting. We drink the whole bottle while I’m doing my makeup and nails and then leave for a lovely evening at the fanciest restaurant in town.
I am SO stupid happy. And I also have to give another shoutout to Dan at Concierge Diamonds. My Fiance and I are both incredibly impressed by how easy the process was and how perfectly he replicated our vision of my dream ring.
