I just wanted to follow up from my ring purchase a few weeks (months!) ago now. It''s been tough to find surprise my now Fiancee Kim, for the past few weeks as we''ve both been so busy with work and life in general. But, I managed to surprise her two weekends ago and took us on a drive up the California coast and over to Napa for a little romantic getaway. We spent the day taking in the magnificent views, had a drive through some great backroads, and had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in Wine country (Bouchon). After dinner, we found a little quiet / private moment, I told her what she meant to me and I did my thing! :)
Needless to say, it was a HUGE, AMAZING, WONDERFUL moment for us and Kim LOVES LOVES LOVES the ring!!! It''s perfect for her style, she loves the size, color, and sparkle and has not been able to keep her eyes off of it (nor can I). I''ve spent a good couple of hours walking her through the research of the past couple of months, talking about 4C''s and especially Cut, H&A, ACAs, AGS, Idealscopes, and especially WF and how incredibly helpful you''ve been. Of course, she loves what the ring means, and how it looks, but she also loves knowing that she has has something that is the best quality.
It''s been so amazing telling friend and family and everyone who''s seen the ring can''t stop commenting on how bright and sparkly it is (of course, it''s an ACA!)...her friends in her office keep doing double takes with it!
Thank you again Katie for all your helpfulness and being patient with me as I went through the purchase process...it was a little intimidating spending that much online, but WF and yourself made the experience really smooth, comfortable, and we are both very very happy with the end result! We''ll definitely spread the word of Whiteflash!
I haven''t had a chance to do hand shots yet, but hopefully soon. Her folks are coming up for the 4th, so we''ll get to celebrate with them over the next few days.
P.S. I''ll definitely follow up with you when it''s time to look at bands too!
