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.
