Lemonade out of lemons ring

I hopped on Facebook to wish someone a happy birthday and scrolled through and liked MANY cat pictures, cartoons, videos.  I LOL at you cute silly cats!

I’m excited, though, today because supposedly I’m getting my engagement diamond back after three months!  I wish I had a picture of it.  It’s the most beautiful diamond to me.  I picked it out myself and enjoyed it every day I wore it.  It looks approximately like this:

Probably much smaller, but it’s the symmetry.  Love the lines.  I sold the setting to a jeweler who agreed to set it with two garnets I have to make a “family” ring — representing my two kids and me.

It took WAY too long.  He sent the wax mold for the band to a caster (not sure I’m using the right terminology) who made the ring.  It was going to be two days – in time for an event.  The metal was cast too small.  He sent it out again, expedited, and it was six more weeks.  In the meantime, I was having second thoughts about my design.  A couple of weeks ago we re-imagined a design — one that didn’t require casting of a band — and it’s supposed to be done today.  TODAY!

It’s my make lemonade out of lemons ring.  I want to have it on my finger and look at it the was I used to, but with happiness now.

I pity him if he doesn’t come through.  Again.  As you may know or surmise, I am a vengeful person.  Not proud, just am.  I will post a picture of it when I get it.  You probably don’t care, but I do.  I really do.

Moving on
