i feel so naked

my guess is that it is not a good thing when the diamond in your new engagement ring rattles. and it’s definitely not a good thing when you use your fingernail to pop one of the channel-set diamonds into place, especially when you didn’t even realize it was loose to begin with.

david feared he’d bought me a bum ring, but i wasn’t worried. we brought it to the jeweler today at lunch and their resident expert, upon looking at the ring, said, “those are really nice stones!” after a closer look he said he would have to have someone else check each setting and tighten everything up. great, i thought. then he told me it will take a week, at least. bummer.

as we left, i frowned and said, “good-bye, ring.” david took my left hand in his and, feeling my ring finger, said, “it feels weird not to have it there.” you’re tellin’ me!

I felt the same way when I had to have my ring sized down. It was so weird!

I also went for about 2 days without it before the wedding. I didn't want to have to part with it after I was married, so N took my engagement ring in, along with my wedding band, and had them soldered together before the wedding.

I've been there! Dropping the ring off to get sized, trusting it in someone else's hands...VERY CHALLENGING! And then of course there is always that wave of panick I experience every time I take my rings off to put on hand lotion or something and temporarily "forgot where I put them".

i'm not so nervous about having left it with the jeweler, except for the fact that we haven't yet insured it. :|

Ug. I know your pain! I had to have the sapphire in my engagement ring tightened, and that week passed sooo slooowly.
