My grandmother gave me the ring that my grandfather gave to her. My grandfather is my hero, he and my grandmother raised me throughout most of my childhood until my grandfather passed away in 1999 when I was 13. It was devistating...
My fiance used that ring to propose..
The ring was too small and sat in a jewlery box (my grandfathers) in my nighstand drawer. We were waiting to get it sized bigger (I was losing weight and didnt want to have to get it sized 2x)..
I opened the jewlery box often to look at my grandfahters things. I must have knocked the ring out without realizing it. I turned my house upside down on several occasions. cried so much that my nose was bleeding and my fiance was ready to take me to the hospital. Losing that ring was like losing my grandfather all over again. I'm completely devistated/mortified.
My fiance and I went ring shopping today to get a new engagement ring. Our budget is NOT a lot. We didnt want to spend more than $500 or so, but it seems impossible to get a nice ring for more than that.
I dont own any jewlery or wear any, and I want this ring to be nice, i dont want to settle for something that I dont really like. The problem is that I keep comparing everything to the ring that I lost..and NOTHING is nearly as good. The ring that I lost was beautiful. It couldn't have been more perfect.
We went to several places in CT today (jewlery stores) and didnt see anything I liked in our price range. we looked at Kay, Michales (I apologize I can not spell), Valentines in milford.. We even looked at walmart but that was a TERRIBLE experience.
Can anybody suggest a jewlery store where things are not WAY over priced?
