Traci, Sorry I never got back, I had people in My office when you called.
The proposal went great, because of the timing I was not able to do it at the location of first choice but I was able to do it right here at home and still make it very special. She LOVES the ring, the cut aboves have a sparkle and brilliance that you just dont see. Yesterday she made the comment....""I'm starting to feel a little bad, so far my ring has blown away the rings of everyone I have shown it to."" I think We did a very good job at selecting the diamond...I ran into a friend of the family that said i should have called her, said she goes to ""The echange"" in atlanta and makes sure her diamonds always appraise at triple what she paid. I have a feeling they are the egl/gia certs with i/si2 and no cut rating that they sell at places like ""the jewlery exchange"". Where you basically get Mall quality diamonds at 1/2 price.
I feel like I did my research and I cant imagine that ""triple 0 ideal cut"" diamonds are availale in those places. I know Stacy has a one in a million diamond and She loves it....and that is what matters to me.
