Everything I Hoped For And More!

Anyway, things went just fine last Saturday night. She said yes! Fed Ex had me a bit worried Friday as they were so overloaded, they did not have your overnight package at the pickup facility until sometime late Friday night. By Saturday morning at 9:15am, they had it listed as available for pickup so I was quite relieved though a little on edge knowing I still had to get the ring without Rebecca knowing. In the early afternoon, I dropped her off at a nearby cafe while I went to FedEx to ""pick up one of her Christmas presents"". She was slightly suspicious but still not sure what I was up to. To my relief, FedEx had the shipment just behind their counter and I didn''''t have to wait up to 45 minutes like some people did. As I opened the FedEx shipping boxes at my car, I realized that I was parked over a storm drain, so I quickly made sure that I opened the packaging safely inside the car less I chance a nightmare scenario of dropping the ring through the grate! Opening the ring box, the diamond was just as beautiful and sparking as I had hoped (no doubt thanks to its A Cut Above ideal cut quality) and I knew then that Rebecca would love it. We then went to dinner at Restaurant Gary Danko (one of the top restaurants in San Francisco) where the proposal was to take place. I previously arranged with the restaurant''''s maitre d'''' to have a 1/2 bottle of Krug ""Grand Cuvee"" NV Champagne ready and slipped him the ring while she went to the bathroom. Once she came back, they brought out the champagne without announcement and then surprised her by placing a little white bowl in front of her with the opened ring box sitting in it. A big smile appeared on her face, she kinda gasped, became giddy, and placed her head on my shoulder for a moment (we sat side-by-side) as she stared at the ring. She was so excited that she just took the ring out of the box and put it on her finger herself and did not even wait for me to say or do anything. To my relief, I didn''''t have to get on my knee or make a scene, but I did formally ask her ""the question"" just to be sure. Despite the very expensive dinner and fabulous wine, she spent the rest of the three hour dinner staring at the ring on her finger and told me that ""I did good"". She later said that she didn''''t really taste the food or wine after getting the ring! Thanks again for your help and great service in getting me the ring in one week''''s time. Thanks for making it the perfect understated and classy marriage proposal (according to Rebecca as well). I''''ll send you some pictures after I get her to email them to me from her camera on Thursday.

Becca, Misty, Jennifer, and Claudia. First, thank you so much for your help over the past couple weeks! Your support made what I imagined would be a pretty complex transaction as simple as possible, and I can’t thank you enough for the help! I did receive the diamond on Friday and was really impressed - believe it or not, I’ve spent very little time handling diamonds and it was really cool to see how it sparkled! I was able to drop off the diamond at Steven Kirsch Jewelry, and I’m excited to see how the ring turns out. Steven is known for his work with custom handmade rings, and recognized the Whiteflash box immediately and commented on how Whiteflash has great diamonds. Again, it was great to work with you all - Jennifer - thanks again for the help in finding the diamond and placing it on reserve! Becca - thank you so much for helping me finalize my choice of stone and walking me through the order process (also… Jeweler’s Mutual did eventually insure the loose stone!)! Misty - thank you for your help and support with the FedEx and for handling their unexpected delay! Claudia - thanks for your help in managing the order! It’s been great working with Whiteflash, and I’ll be sure to recommend it to all of my friends that are actively looking for engagement rings or are thinking about beginning to start looking!

Becca, I am not sure how to thank you for all you did to assist us in finding these beautiful stones. The side stones may be a little large but we will keep them for earrings :) THANK YOU AGAIN!

Bought a sublime ring for my now fiancée. It was quite the ordeal in order to buy it from Canada but Becca was a great help and made the purchase a nice experience.

We just got back from a trip and, thanks to your fantastic overnight shipping, I was able to enjoy my beautiful new ring the whole time. I am absolutely thrilled with it. I was initially worried that the cut of a lab grown diamond wouldn’t meet the super ideal standards I was used to with your ACA line but the second I saw my ring I was ecstatic. The setting is perfect: not too high or low. I’m so glad I didn’t ask for it to be set lower. Thank you for getting through soft claw prongs for me. I just love the way they disappear into the stone. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you again for your help. Here’s how it looks with my wedding and anniversary bands. It’s like they were made for each other. Thank you!
