Once upon a time I met this woman who was to one day become my wife…. Having no idea what to do for wedding bands, I came to you and together we designed my wife’s 3 piece solitaire engagement ring and 2 part wedding bands, and a custom wedding band for myself. Back then it was all we could afford and the rings were testaments to our love for one another.
But then one day many years later, my wife decided that she wanted to have her 3 rings somehow mechanically glued together so they wouldn’t all turn in different directions. And I think this is where it all began……I am now forced to come and meet with you to discuss the metal gluing process…. and somehow we went from gluing (bad Idea), to designing to bigger dialmonds and making a whole new ring (better Idea). I’m not sure how this happened but it turned out to be the most fantastic rings anyone had ever seen. (it would win this contest hands down if it were in the contest)

So for the next four years, I had to stare at this really cool over the top bling ring, and listen to all the compliments, and then look down at my old ring in saddend disappointment that mine just wasn’t big enough or pretty enough. (yes size matters) To make matters worse my wife chipped her stone….. and again ……You convinced me to replace it with a bigger center stone. What was I thinking? Now her ring was WAY over the top and my ring was now this inferior little piece of jewlery that just wasn’t good enough any more.
SO ….Thank you for helping me make my dreams come true! Its not fair that my wife got to have you design a really cool ring with all kinds a big crazy diamonds and I had to be stuck with the first ring I could afford to have you design when we got married 8 years ago. Finally….. I now have my own size 14 Bling Ring with 18 1/2 carat diamonds totaling 9 carats. (note 1 more carat that my wife’s ! ) Some people say its crazy, but when they see that its designed in the same style as my wifes they see that it was meant to be!
No one has ever created 2 more perfect rings that go together, and we are showered with complements continuously on how beaiful they are. Mostly from strangers who are complaining about being blinded from yards away, Laugh.
and if you read this story and your thinking why did I go 1 more carat than my wife? Well its pre planning because one day she will chip a stone in her ring and Good ol’ Joe will trick me into getting her something bigger, and this way I will still be one step ahead.
Thanks Joe, I got what I wanted !
