New Ring Came Today
« on: August 04, 2010, 08:07:01 PM »
I really can't say enough good things about the experience buying from David and DBL. My ring came today, right on time, and it has exceeded my expectations in every way. It's really beautiful, and I am sure my wife is going to be thrilled when I figure out how to surprise her with it. I even took it to a local independent appraiser and he had nothing but praise, confirmed for me what my gut already told me from working with David that everything was totally as described and not only was it a nice piece but it was a good deal too. This was my first time buying jewelry (or anything this expensive, for that matter) online, and I wanted a second set of eyes even though David and DBL never gave me any reason to doubt that everything was legit.

Anyhow, the light isn't that great here right now and I can't really have this out too much because my wife, who is sitting right downstairs, doesn't know anything about the ring yet, but here is one bad picture. I will try to get more up later if I get the opportunity or at least a finger shot after the surprise is done.

David, if you read this, thanks again for everything. I have a feeling you have made me look pretty good on this one, and I look forward to working with you if and when I need jewelry again.

Such a lovely note. And, such a very pretty and unique ring. A solid, classic that can be worn anywhere, anytime, forever. Congratulations, mnafcl, on a wonderful choice. I KNOW that your wife will be absolutely delighted. She's a lucky woman to have found such a thoughtful and loving husband!

What a wonderful thing to do - surprise your wife with such a lovely ring!  Can you come give my dearly beloved some lessons?  Seriously, though, please do keep us in the loop - we'd love to hear how you surprise her and her reaction to such a wonderful gift.  And hand shots please - the more the merrier.  :4:

I managed to get a few better shots -- still doesn't do it justice, but do they ever? Also, ignore my giant thumb.  :)

I will let everyone know how it turns out and get some hand shots as soon as I can.

Beautiful!  It looks shockingly similar to the ring my husband and I chose for my engagement ring (same setting, similar shape/size/color of diamond), and I'm very happy with it.  This is a classic she'll treasure forever!

I just have to say that I positively adore this setting.your picutres showed off how divine this underwire setting is. I know I commented before but that side profile shot is beautiful. I know your wife will love this forever.

Really nice setting!  I never really noticed this style until now, but WOW!  And kudos for such a thoughtful, surprise gift.  Was there a particular occasion you had in mind when you decided on this ring as a gift?

Yay! So glad you're happy with it. I think it looks fantastic - that is one of my favourite designs and the stone you picked works so well with it.

Please do let us know what your wife thinks!
