Remember Abby and my first orange last week? I showed you 3 emerald cut diamonds. The diamond engagement ring is now in production.
It started with a phone call from a guy looking for a ring for his engagement. His girlfriend had given him a picture of a particularly beautiful ring she had seen on a website so he had a place from which to start. Because his office is downtown and they carpool, he asked me to meet him at his office.
At our first meeting we just talked about his plans and we started with “Diamond Buying 101” so that when we would talk specifics about stones, he would understand all the choices that were under his control within the budget he was comfortable with. We talked about size, quality, styles and steps we would take to make her dream engagement ring a reality. Our meeting took a little over an hour and we both walked away with a better idea of what we would work on.
In his office at the second meeting, I brought the centre piece of his ring – 3 emerald cut diamonds -with me so that he could feel them in the palm of his hand. I gotta tell you, it makes me so proud to be entrusted with one of the most important purchases in a person’s life.
His ring is now in production.
He was so grateful that I will deliver her dream engagement ring to him at his office. She doesn’t know that he has done the shopping, understood the value of his purchase and be able to describe and explain the selection and designing process. She’s in for a surprise! He will have received the best in concierge service from start to finish and I have gained a friend.
