I picked up my ring this morning. It is simply stunning. The photos, while gorgeous, do not do it justice at all! It is amazing in person. I love it and am very pleased with it. It looks about 100 times better than anything I saw when I was looking in local jewelry stores. I am an extremely picky person, so when I say I am thrilled with it, rest assured I am not exaggerating!
As you know I have been giving a lot of thought to the wedding band, and I was contemplating a couple of pieces from other sources. But after seeing the quality of the ACA melee and the craftsmanship of this ring, I am pretty sure I am going to go with you guys for the wedding band as well, if I do end up choosing a diamond band. I don't think I'll be satisfied with anything else, I'm afraid that the diamonds in a band from another source won't look right next to the diamonds in this engagement ring!
Thanks for working with me on this. I look forward to hearing more about the possible semi-custom band.
