Love Stories: new engagement ring & continued passion
The other day I was sitting at my desk when a good friend texted me. “I have a problem.” he began. “My daughter recently got engaged, and…wait for it… her diamond is bigger than my wife’s.” As my accountant, a new diamond for his wife is one of the easier things that he’s ever asked of me, rather than mountains of financial information. As we talked a little bit more about what he wanted, I realized he wanted more than just a diamond upgrade. He wanted to present his wife with a whole new ring. We went back and forth on the design and got her involved in the design. She has a unique style, and he wanted to get her something no one else had. He picked a beautiful Marquis cut diamond that was, in fact, larger than his daughter’s. We eventually decided on a ring design that he thought she’d love. Fast forward, and the custom ordered ring has come in and it looks gorgeous. I give him a call to come pick it up and when he got here I ask him when he’s thinking about giving it to her. He responded “I’ll let you know when it happens.”
To set the scene, downtown Indianapolis is buzzing with the fanfare of the Indy 500 with people from out of town, fun things to do, and exciting things to see.
While walking around, seeing the sites, hearing the sounds, He begins talking to her “If you had to do it all over, would you do it all again?” Having said that, he gets down on one knee, right in the middle of the busy sidewalk, and proposes to her all over again. With tears coming to her eyes, she couldn’t help but say “Yes! One-hundred percent I’d do it all again with you.” She took the ring, and put it on her finger. She absolutely loves it. She is over the moon and he is not only relieved, but also gave his wife a stone that’s comfortably larger than her daughter’s. These are the stories I love; this is the reason I got into the jewelry business. I want to help people make their love’s dreams come true. I will be the first to tell you, it’s truly about the love between two people, not the jewelry. But to give each other an expression of your love for one another, what a great, tangible, way to display each other’s affection. Below is what the beautiful ring looks like:
