Wow, awesome story!

When we were picking out my ring, we had gone to several jewelry store and tried on a lot of different rings.  One stood out in particular, and the Dude knew it was the one he had to get me (but he didn’t tell me that).  So later, not knowing that he’d already picked out and purchased my ring, I convinced him to go back to this particular jewelry store to try on the ring that I loved again.  We got a different person working than the last time, so this person had no idea that he’d already bought my ring.  I actually tried on the ring he’d already purchased for me, not knowing it was my ring!  Luckily I didn’t see the tag on it, which had his last name written on it!

when i picked out my ring it was originally a very light, almost grey amethyst, grade c……….. and a size 7.  i am a 10. 

so they sent it out to be sized locally.  

the local jeweler could not resize it without adjusting the main stone, which would void the warrenty, so they had to send it back to the companys headquarters where they could do the work. 

well headquarters could not make it work with the main stone either, so they had to find another cushion cut amethyst to fit. all they had was a darker stone, that was a grade a.

it ended up taking a full five weeks, but i got it back sized with an even better stone at no extra charge. 

i was a very happy lady and love my ring

It’s really pretty!  I love the center stone.  I’m totally getting myself a right-hand ring with an aquamarine stone one of these days!!
