OMC, you're the best..now, how do I do it from my "mobile uploads" folder on FB? I right-click that and it wants to include all the text (comments, etc) and I don't see .jpg or .bmp, just php, which I don't think is what I need
The ring..is fantabulous, which I didn't discover for at least 60 seconds AFTER I said YES and threw my arms around his neck and kissed him thoroughly while my friends and family SNUCK UP BEHIND ME TO TAKE PICTURES. I'll deal with them later
At some point I stopped and said, "Wait, I haven't even looked at the ring!!"
It's STUNNING. In the low light of the restaurant, the center stone was brown, like a clear glass of tea. The presentation is enormous (E. Norm Moose?), and the Daussi cushion has to be the most interesting stone to look at ever. From some angles, it looks like a fancy emerald cut, and you can look down into the stone- but I discovered that more when I went outside, and the color turned to a silvery white wine. In the dim restaurant, it was root-beer colored and more flashy/sparkly. I can't imagine a more perfect stone for me! It's different while still being utterly classic. (You know, like moi. LOL)
Oh, and I've seen the Daussi cushion described as "shallow", with the implication that it's a fault. Obviously, with the huge presentation, it's not a deep stone. However, to me, it's shallow in the way a reflecting pool is shallow. There's a lot to look at in this stone- enough that I'm surprised I can type!!
My older daughter hasn't seen it yet, but the baby's comment was "ooOOoooo!" Well-said
Thanks for the congratulations and best wishes, everyone! It makes my whole day!
