I picked up my ring, excuse me, my wife's ring today in the middle of a snow squall. I opened it and was floored by how nice it looked even in overcast weather. I took a half day off of work to deliver the ring to my wife who is on active duty in the Army about an hour and a half away. All along the scenic NJ Turnpike I kept looking at the ring to see if it was sparkling but it wasn't...overcast skies, remember?
I get to the army base. The snow stops. I check out the ring, no sparkle...still overcast. I call my wife on the cell, letting her know I've arrived with her ring. She was already waiting in the parking lot in her car. She jumps into our mini-van, barely says hello and asks for her ring.
I was nervous because I still wasn't convinced it was perfect. She opened the box and loved it. As she put it on her finger the clouds broke and the whole car was filled with sunlight. She stretched out her hand into the sun and we were both in awe. The ring looked on fire and was more beautiful than I thought a ring could be. I think we both stared at it for at least fifteen minutes before we went out to lunch.
This sounds too corny to be real but it's true. I have not embellished or exaggerated this story. What a cool moment!
Thanks for all of your help and guidance, as well as the prompt attention at all stages of my purchase.
I will recommend you to anyone who wants a quality diamond at a very fair price.
