Engagement Ringless...

I'm having a first world problem right now. So, yesterday Justin and I drove up to White Plains to go to the jewelery store that he bought my engagement ring from because we ordered the matching wedding band from them and the company that make the rings did the professional thing and sent sapphire samples down to the jewelery store so that the sapphires in my wedding band could match the sapphires in my engagement ring as close as possible (Holy run on sentence Batman).

This was all awesome and great, but none of the sapphires matched. For some reason I had gotten some particularly dark sapphires in my ring (Like they are so dark people think that my ring is white and black diamonds in certain lighting) and none of the sapphires matched. The owner of the store tried to insist that I get a certain shade that they had there but I could see the difference and both Justin and I knew that I'd have mini OCD fits over the sapphires not matching for the rest of my life if I listen to the jewelery store lady. So I had to give my engagement ring to the jewelery store to send back to the jewelers so they could properly match the sapphires.

So I am ringless for the next five weeks and I am so sad. I actually had to go find a ring in my jewelery box when I got home to wear on my ring finger so I don't try to touch my ring and bug out because its not there. I know I only got the ring in May but I am seriously distraught and I know it's a stupid thing to be upset about. I mean, I know in the long run I'll be happy because I'll be wearing these rings forever and since they took the ring I told them to resize it because it was half a size too big, so silver lining? I'm being ridiculous, I know but I had to get it out.

  1. I totally get where you are coming from. I need to have a stone reset in my wedding band (it was my grandmother's) but I can't bear to part with it so I've been wearing it for over a year with a tiny diamond missing. I hope you get your ring back soon and they find perfectly matching sapphires for you! :)

    1. Ooh it would be so much worse if it was my grandmother's ring! I wonder if there is a place in Texas like the place they advertise here on LI that fixes your jewelry while you watch.

      I hope they match too. I'll be pissed if I gave my ring away for such a long time and they don't match.

  2. I don't think you're being ridiculous at all. That would frustrate me too!

    1. I'm so glad someone doesn't think I'm being ridiculous. I would have mini OCD fits looking at the thing for the rest of my life and with the amount that they charged for both rings they need to match.

  3. My wife went through a similar process. She was trying to get the sizing corrected and we could never seem to get the right size. We took it in maybe about five or six times until finally we found the proper fit. But she went a few weeks without her ring and it drove her nuts. I hope you get it back soon.
