engagement ring drama & new band ;)

Recommended Posts

OMGosh! Tuesday night I noticed that my ring was making a "clicking" every once in a while so I started tapping on my diamond and sure enough it was loose. I showed my fiance and he said let me see it. I was busy (reading this forum as a matter of fact) and didn't even notice he's left the room. He came in the room and said, "Well ... you can't wear your ring." Huh? His face said it all ... He tried to "fix" the prong and he broke it! ;( *sobbing*

 

He was upset with himself and I was totally bummed! We bought the ring online from a designer so now what?! Yesterday he found a local jeweler and we took it in and had it repaired ($240 later! LOL).

 

The good news is that we've gone round and round about whether or not to put a band with it. I do love my setting but he thought that any type of band would take away from the ring and the diamond. It's a solitaire with 2 rows of pave circling the diamond and 3 rows of pave on the band ... well ... we found the perfect band at this guy's shop! It's a single row of pave and it fits perfectly under the setting and he sized both rings so they fit me perfectly (my ring was too big).

 

Yeah ... a happy ending and I got my band! I didn't want to look engaged for the rest of my life wink.gif *SmiLes* Suzanne

I forgot to say ... yes it's total crap! We have been engaged a year so it's not brand new .... but still. They guy who fixed it said they didn't use long enough prongs for that diamond so he replace two (which are longer slightly and sturdier than the orig) and I will have to always watch for it ... if one of the other two goes ... he'll replace the other two ... I wish he'd have done all 4 now! Makes me crazy! It's insured but still!!!!!!!!!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
