- Wedding: June 2018 - Tizer Gardens/Carroll College
There have been many, many dream rings over the years. The first I saw when I was taking another ring in for cleaning. I had my then Boyfriend or Best Friend come in to look at it, and he loved it too, and 9! months later it was on my hand. However, it was a relationship that was not meant to be. I gave it back to him, and suspect it is now on his widow’s hand.
The second came when, shocker, I took yet another ring in for cleaning. It was perfect, even though the diamond was something like a JK, and it was rated something like an s1. You could see straight into it with a loupe and never see the flaws. It spoke to me.
And then I found this ring after my guy told me to go looking. It was more than kind of perfect for me. It had milgrain, and some cutouts, and we could choose our own stone, and it came with a wedding band.
And then came the Jolie from Brilliant Earth, I saw it on pinterest, and I thought, how delicately perfect – until I saw it in person and realized that it was just a little too delicate. The detail would not be seen really.
And then I moved onto the Floriana. It was so much more beautiful in person, but there were some variations I would have made (like add one more petal structure to the bottom so there were three sets and not two), so we were going to have it customized…
And while peeping on the floriana, another ring caught my eye. One I couldn’t get off my mind. I had it in, and it was so perfect but the head was so ordinary. The prongs so large. Since we were going custom no matter what, I decided to tell the jeweler to keep the feathers that go up the side, and change the 4-prong boring head to something that fit the sides better. And at long last, beautiful crown, with beautiful shoulders. From my photoshopped file, to the final product!
