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!!!!!!!!!!

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
