Lovely Sparkle

I left on Friday afternoon. Saturday night, after an 8 hour layover in Frankfurt, I flew to Warsaw. We had a foggy, foggy, landing at Warsaw International. Weronika and her father picked me up at the airport, who both enthusiastically showed me the arrivals board - every flight from the preceding hour, and all flights scheduled after mine that evening had been re-routed to other airports because of the fog. But for some reason my flight continued on to Warsaw and made a safe landing. Weronika found out the reason later :) She took me back to our place where she had homemade pizza and beer waiting for us . . . Nice to get such a warm welcome. I knew that I couldn''t wait to propose to her. She also suspected I travelled home with a ring and was probably expecting a proposal sometime between now and Christmas. I had the ring hidden in the bathroom, and when I came back from the bathroom after dinner I just ended up on my knees and simply asked her to marry me. Of course she said yes immediately. :) There were no fancy, elaborate surprises or tactics - it''s just not my/our style! But she was happy - very happy, and loves the ring. It looks just great on her and the size is just about perfect. It''s perhaps a 1/4 size too big, but she''s actually experimenting with what finger/hand she wants to wear it on. Because of the way her joints line up on her left hand it''s a little uncomfortable for her to wear rings on the ring finger of her left hand. I''m just happy to see the ring on her finger where it belongs. It''s got a lovely sparkle to it and it''s almost as fun to look at as she is . . . well, ok not quite! Sunday was even more fun . . . . We had a nice lunch then stopped by her parents place for an (almost) surprise visit. Weronika was busy trying to sit on her hand and contain the giggles before we told her parents. They were not surprised by the content of our news but more by our timing. In any case they are supportive and enthusiastic. So are my mom and dad, of course. The rest of the day and evening has been spent calling, emailing, and writing our friends and fam to tell them all . . . We''re both just so excited . . . we''re enjoying the ''public'' fun of getting engaged just as much as our short lived secret of Saturday evening. Tonight we get to meet a number of her close friends who don''t know the news yet so that will be an adventure. We''re both totally happy and excited and enjoying this time. Saturday is dinner with her parents who are hopefully less in shock by now! I must get on with my morning. But I really want to thank you for being part of the journey for us. Everyone at Whiteflash has been very helpful with my many questions and queries along the way and I''m very thankful for all the help. We''re hoping have an ultra small wedding here in Warsaw sometime this coming summer. So on with the paperwork! Hope you''re having sunny days in Texas. Best Regards from a happy (now engaged!) customer in Warsaw!

If you are looking for an online boutique to purchase your engagement diamond, don't think twice - go with Whiteflash. I worked with Liza and it was an excellent experience. I have to admit I was a bit hesitant initially, because the idea of buying something worth thousands of dollars without physically handling the diamond first was scary for me. Whiteflash provides ASET imaging, which was very reassuring to me. But more importantly, they have a very robust return policy which was reassuring to me. All in all, 5/5 experience and would definitely recommend Whiteflash for anyone looking to buy high-quality diamonds at a good price with a professional and reassuring retailer.

Thanks to Brittany and Mariah for completing my order to perfection. The transaction was smooth and easy, your customer service stellar. As is the diamond, I personally didn’t expect so much fire with the technical specs of the stone but what do I know… Another thing to note: J color (and similar) seems to be a sweet spot color-wise. I don’t know if this still can be said if we are looking at bigger diamonds but in general the view of a ring is top down so you’re looking at the table and the upper facets. I suppose you might get away with a J color even with a 3 carat diamond unless your setting is platinum or white gold or if you want a halo setting with matching stones. There is a lot to learn about diamonds. Fortunately it’s not rocket science with the help of jewelry professionals like you. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

Thanks for everything these last few months. :) My now husband has been showing off photos of the ring to all our friends. If ever I want to upgrade I’ll be coming back to Whiteflash for sure. You guys have been amazing and I appreciate all your attention to detail, your patience, and your friendliness. It’s really been a pleasure and I can’t thank you enough. :)
