Ok, 1st, a lil back story: My fiance gave me a Champagne Diamond Engagement Ring (cluster) not too long ago. I love it and wear it, BUT it sits flush on the finger and is shaped (like a roundish-flower shape), so...a wedding band could not sit next to it closely or even remotely look good next to it. Heck, it couldn't even get near it! I really want to have the Engagement and band together on the finger eventually. So, he bought me a loose Black Diamond, said we can custom set it and I can then wear it in it's high setting, together with my band when we get married. I was sooo happy. I remember posting that we were going to have it set in 14kt rose gold setting, pave rubies around it and the Diamond held in a little chalice like setting. Well, thank god the place did a test run with just colored fake stones. (we requested this because once they did it, there would be No turning back). It was all the right coloring, setting, etc...and it looked AWFUL. Beyond awful. Messy, confusing, big, the setting concealed a huge portion of the diamond, it was just so confusing and compact and not all regal and beautiful as I had dreamed. So, thank god we saved our real Black Diamond from this impending fate, but then my dream of my perfect ring went down the hole. After much crying (I know it's a dumb thing to be sooo upset over, but it meant alot to me and had been planned and anticipated over) and wondering now what to do, we finally came to a decision I'm happy with. We got another colored Diamond (Green, my favorite color), which I relaized I would want more and are just going to put it in a simple yellow 14kt gold 6-prong setting and let simplicity be the beauty. Even though I AM so excited over my ring and am 100% fine with it now, I still have that original botched design in my mind and i guess I'm greiving it?......has anything like this ever happened to anyone? Like, the feeling of planning something engagement wise, esp. jewelry and have it totally falling thru? It's just a shock cause I was so sure it would look great and I was 100% wrong =/ I dunno, I guess I just need everyday, regular people like me's opinions if you have any. Thanks for listening to my long story but I just had to get it off my chest, lol.
