Confession:  I'm OBSESSED with my wedding rings.  

Now, you all probably are "obsessed" with your wedding rings, but I am REALLY obsessed with them.  I love my wedding rings soooo darn much that I can probably have an album of at least 50 pictures of them.  Seriously. 

So, I always maintain my rings clean and all that good stuff.  The other day at work, I was sitting and noticed something out of the corner of my eye.  My ring was not sparkling as much as it usually does.  Then it happens.  I look down and AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH...... 

I am MISSING a diamond from my wedding  band!  Freak out!  Then 20 seconds later relax and realize not the biggest deal.  My wedding band has a row of round diamonds alternating between sapphire ones.  Um yeah, I wanted to  be different with my wedding rings and I love blue!  What was I saying??  Oh yeah... 

So, of course one of the little round diamonds in BETWEEN two sapphire ones ( like really, I couldn't have lost the sapphire one, it JUST HAD TO BE the diamond one...grrrr).  So, I immediately start to look on the floor around my desk because I know when I left in the morning, my rings were perfect. I start to look and realize there is no way I am going to find this diamond amongst the carpet in my office which I have made several trips here and there throughout the morning.  So, now I'm a sad little person sitting in my chair moping.  

"Why my rings!!! Why.... I take such good care of them!!!"

So, the sadness stops and I call the husband.  

Me: " Hi,you busy?"
Hubs: " No, what's up?"
Me: " Ilostadiamondinmyweddingbandandhavenoideawhenitcameoffandihaditthismorningandican'tfinditatwork."


Me: "It's not the engagement ring diamond, but from my wedding band and I'm so sad babe.... waaahhhh."
Hubs: "What?!?!  That's unbelievable.  The jeweler probably did a bad job of setting them in.  I can't believe this."
Me: "Well, I don't think it's that.  It has been almost two years and I haven't gone to the jeweler to check my stones like I probably should have.  It's OK.  It's just a small diamond that I can get replaced.  Shouldn't cost me that much.  Just sucks it had to happen to me babe... waaaahhhh.:"
Hubs: " Ok, let me know what the jeweler says."

So, I call my best friend because he was the one who introduced us to the jeweler and he says, " Oh yeah, that's happened before and he said sometimes when you wash your hands and clean dishes the chemicals loosen it up."

Me: "Well, I never take my rings off so maybe that's it.  You think he's going to charge me a lot?"
Best Friend: "He didn't charge me last time."
Me: "I should go with you then.... (hoping that he will say, well I will come with you!)'
Best Friend: "Sure, I'll go with you."

So, we went to the jeweler and I explained to him what happened and he put a new diamond in my wedding band. 

Cost: $0.00

Awesome right.  My jeweler is now my best friend, he just doesn't' know it yet.
