I cannot believe it! Almost a year ago, I was telling my cousin and his wife, “I’m ready to get married.” I did not know her name or even who she was. I just knew I was ready. Little did I know, my cousin, better yet, his wife, knew her well.
After endless late night phone conversations and countless trips to Washington, DC, I finally found her… Tiffany – the woman of my dreams, and the one I wanted to be my wife! I had been saving up for a new pair of golf clubs, but now I knew by savings had another purpose – I needed a ring.
I am a man of selective tastes, so before I make a decision of this importance, it is critical for me to know all my options and to seek out reputable and knowledgeable professionals who will share with me the information I need in order to make an informed decision.
So, I took Tiffany ring shopping to just about every retail jeweler I could think of, the notable and the infamous. Not only was I looking for the kind of ring she liked, but, also, the kind of ring that would leave a lasting impression on her for the rest of our lives.
Finally, I saw it – the sparkle in her eyes, so I went in search of who could customize the ring that could rival the sparkle in her eyes.
That led me to Uptown Diamond. Upon meeting Rick and Grayland, I knew they would help me make an informed decision and provide the quality and customization that I was looking for. They were phenomenal! I was impressed by their quality of service and extensive experience as gemologists.
After a few conversations and design revisions, I was thrilled when I had it in my hands – it was a classic and it sparkled! Its beauty – like my wife – was most exemplified by its natural brilliance and timeless design.
On April 16, 2014, Tiffany became my fiancée; on October 4, 2014, she became my wife. Then, it appeared, this time with a tear, the sparkle in her eyes!
Thanks Uptown Diamond for helping us make memories that will last a lifetime. Cheers to the next 50 years!
