So, last time we went to look at rings my guy got the idea that maybe he should just worry about finding a quality stone and we’ll take care of the setting once we found something we both liked, since that hadn’t happened yet. I don’t know who he had been talking to but in his head he thought that spending 4K on a quality stone was reasonable/expected. I thought it was insane and almost left the store. I love diamonds, but I don’t love the pricetag. So I started reasearching moissanite last night thinking maybe we could get a super cheap, beautiful stone and put it in a tacori-esque setting and save a bunch of money. In my searching I came across Diamonds by Lauren and the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen. And it would be 4K for the stone, the setting, everything and they even had a 2K option which was awesome as well.
I showed him this morning. And, well, he LOVED it. It’s a “lower quality” colored diamond surrounded by a halo of smaller better quality diamonds. So it looks like cream surrounded by white. BEAUTIFUL! I told him I didnt understand why a diamond absolutely had to be white that and it’s cheaper if it isn’t. He said he always thought he needed to spend 2 months salary on a ring. I told him, “Why should you spend 8K on a ring that I think is so-so if there is a 2K ring out there that I would literally kill for?” It’s unique, it’s everything I’ve been looking for and he won’t have to drain his hard-earned savings to get it.
Also, I said that I know we aren’t quite at that point yet, but when we are, this is the exact ring that I want. His response? What do you mean we aren’t at that point yet? 🙂 !!!!! Once we do some more research about the company, this will be the ring he buys. Don’t know when. But it’s the one. We’re both really happy. I just wanted to share with you guys. I can’t stop beaming. 🙂
