I did something bad.
I was helping someone at work rearrange their office, and in the midst of it I smashed my hand between a desk and a brick wall. The result of this is a very bruised finger and a very MESSED UP DIAMOND RING!!
AGH! I am SO MAD! I bent 2 prongs on my engagement ring and the centerstone is all crooked and the setting is all messed up. The centerstone is wiggly and I am keeping the ring in a little envelope for the time being cause I don't wanna lose my stone. It is so weird though. Grant proposed to me on August 13, 2005, and yesterday was the very first day since then that the ring has not been on my finger.
We took it to a jeweler today, and it isn't gonna be as easy to fix as I was hoping. We have some decisions to make, including the possibility of putting the stone in a different setting.
What ticks me off the most is that right before the smashing of the hand, someone offered to help me move the table. And I said, "No, no, I can do it". So prideful! So I am wearing my wedding bands, and that's all fine and good. If I could just rewind! My poor ring!
For the record, my husband has been absolutely precious and sweet about all this. He knows it was an accident, and he is just glad the stone itself isn't ruined.
So what do we think ladies? Should I put the stone back in the current setting with the possibility of this happening again? Or should I put it in an altogether new setting? This would be kinda fun to change it up a bit, but also I would be kinda sad, since that is the ring that was given to me when Grant asked me to marry him.
What do you think?
