….and I said yes!
Gary and I met you at the Arthur’s Jeweler’s Bridal Event back in mid-April, and we chose one of your wonderful two tone rings – and I asked for it to be customized to look exactly the way I had envisioned my engagement ring to look.
Since it was custom work, we were told it could take 4-5 weeks, or more, for the ring to come back in to Arthur’s, and so began my wait.
On June 5th, Gary and I flew out to Colorado, for a work function/vacation combination, we stayed at a beautiful ranch in the mountains. After the conference was over on Thursday, it was a beautiful night, so we decided to take a walk along the lighted riding path in a fairly secluded part of the ranch. We stopped to sit for a while and admire the sky filled with stars.
Imagine my surprise when Gary dropped to one knee and produced the little brown box! I had no idea he had picked up the ring, let alone “snuck” it through airport security and hidden it from me all the way from MN to CO.
Even with just the light of the stars underneath “Devil’s Thumb” – the sparkle was amazing, and the ring fit perfectly!
I love my future husband, and I love my ring! Thank you so much!
