Thanks for inquiring about us. Sorry it has taken awhile to respond. Alison has made a full recovery from the broken fingers, but is losing 2 finger nails. Her left hand ring finger''s nail is still quite bruised under the nail. I proposed on Nov. 14 during dinner at a lovely restaurant in the Joshua Wilton House in Harrisonburg , VA. She did not hestitate to say ""yes"". The waiter picked up on what was happening and had the chef write on the rim of the dessert plates, ""Congratulations"" in chocolate syrup. The ring is outstanding and she loves it, as does everyone who has seen it and commented on it. She keeps on saying to me that you did a great job steering me to the right diamond. Pass along to the setting guys that the diamond looks like it was made for that setting.
