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