I have been married 46 years. About two years ago - I could find the actual receipt - I noticed my engagement ring band had actually worn through from being rubbed by my wedding ring. It was very thin and I hoped maybe a DC jeweler could somehow reinforce my white gold band. As providence would have it, the jeweler who waited on me at the Dublin store RECOGNIZED the engagement ring setting! He even knew the design number AND he had the phone number of the manufacturer memorized. He said he was a salesman of engagement/wedding rings in the field before he came to work at the DC. If anyone else had waited on me, perhaps we could never have been able to ID the manufacturer. This gentleman went in the back, called the manufacturer, established that this very same setting was still available and ordered it for me.
He suggested I upgrade the diamond while I had the chance. But my little .48 carat diamond was bought by my husband ... in 1966. He worked all summer on a highway road crew at $3 an hour to earn the money to buy it. (no credit cards in those days) I would never change the diamond. But I would never go anywhere but the Diamond Cellar to have it "serviced" and saved!!
