"I don't know how I lived before I met you!!!"
I am a person who really spend money on jewelry. I deal with many jewelers on a regular basis. Yet when it came down to my very engagement ring, I was far lost into the haystack.
Since I am not, in theory, the purchaser of the ring, yet the one who wear it, we had to work with his budget to get the ring that I can be happy wearing. It was like a 6 month quest that we almost lost hope, until we walked into D'Antonio & Kline by our dumb-luck one Sat afternoon. We finished our engagement ring journey with a 'happy-ever-after'.
We had gone thru probably 20 jewelers - new ones & ones I regular deal with. We were shopping for a 2+ carats eye-clean around G-I color within $8500 budget. It was a long, but very bearable process with John holding our hand. By the final chapter, we walked out with 3.15 cts eye-clean GIA center stone w/ 4.65 cts total carats. We pushed our envelop on the budget to close to $11,000 for the whole project, yet we can't be happier.
Needless to say, D'Antonio & Kline is my jeweler from now on. Special Thanks to John & Jonathan!
Now only if we can make the wedding planning as smoothly as dealing with D&K, we will be in the perfect world.
