My fingers are happy again!

About 6 or 7 years ago I lost the diamond out of my engagement ring. My girlfriend who worked at a place where they repair jewelry talked me into replacing the diamond with a CZ and it was huge! I was not happy with it, due to it's over size look and also knowing it was not a real diamond. I would wear it occasionally and ended up just putting it in my jewelry box hoping that some day I would be able to replace it with a real diamond. My co-worker, Amy and I would talk about the ring and she really motivated me to go look at what was out there and getting it fixed. Well, that day finally came. I went to our local Jewelry store and looked at loose diamonds and found the perfect one and it was the closest to the one that was in originally. I was able to size up and got a new mount and they even re-antiqued it. I was so shocked at how beautiful it turned out. This picture does not do it justice. I feel like a new bride...well, sorta. I also took in a ruby and diamond ring that was missing a diamond and they also put a new one in. It only took them 1 week to do this and I am thrilled at the outcome. My husband told me I could have gotten a bigger diamond, but I really liked the size of this one and I am not all about the size anyways...I just wanted my rings back and to that, I am thankful. This set looks pretty good for being 35 years old! I hope to wear them at least another 35 more years.......Thank you my dear husband. I love you.

Beautiful! It must feel so nice to have your ring back. The ruby ring is really pretty, too. I love rubies.
