For those who are new to my blog or want a refresh on how it went down, here we go!
On Saturday, April 30, 2011, Beau and I decided to go to the jewelry store to look at ring settings. I had designed the ring I wanted but after looking for weeks, we couldn't find anything to match so we had to make our own. After finding the exact setting I had been dreaming of, we talked to Beau's friend who works at the store then left, happy as could be.
I went to another store to
So after bad mouthing Beau’s Apple products, saying that I was going to personally yell at Steve Jobs (may he now rest in peace) if Beau got another product before getting me a ring, and jokingly saying that I wanted to punt the Apple bag across the parking lot for a good 5 minutes, Beau told me to look in the bag. There is was, next to the Apple TV... a ring box! I pulled out the box and opened it to see my dream ring. At that moment, Beau asked if I would marry him. Obviously I said yes!
Unknown to me, the reason he wanted to go 'look at settings' was because the ring was ready to be picked up and after going to the Apple store, he ran back to the jewelers to grab it. Was it the romantic proposal I wanted? Not at all. Was it us? Completely!
(And yes, this is directly taken from my older post so I didn't have to re-type the whole thing... Laziness at it's finest!)
Unfortunately, I did have an issue with my ring though. It was sometime in August, I woke up and stared at my ring like I do every morning. But that morning, I cried after looking at it because there it was --- a big ol' chip! It was on the edge of the sapphire near the prong. It wasn't super noticeable but once you saw it, it made you go 'Damn!'
So we called our friend at the jewelry store and she had us bring it in so they could replace the sapphire. I was sad that I wouldn't have my ring for about 2 weeks but I wanted it fixed.
ONE MONTH LATER I finally got my ring back. I was such a happy lady! Until I put the ring on and looked at it... there is was still, the chip! But not just one this time, TWO!!! The original chip and a new one. But wait, how is the original chip still there when he replaced the sapphire. Oh that's right - he didn't replace it! He didn't do crap to it! No worries though... our friend who works at the store yelled at him :-)
It took another few weeks for me to get my ring back but this time it is perfect. The stone color is a little different... that's to be expected when replacing the sapphire though. I'm just glad that I am able to wear my beautiful engagement ring again.
So that's my story! Thank you C Mae for putting on a wonderful link up!!!
