Last week I went with my fiance to collect my engagement ring that he's just had serviced.. it's a gold ring so it was a pretty swanky shop that we'd gone into.
but while we were waiting there was a couple behind us trying on engagement rings.. they were looking at a full carat of non conflict diamond and I have to admit my ears pricked up when the woman in the shop said it was £8,500.
So i'm standing there desperately trying to see this ring and how enormous it must be and the husband (to be) asks if she has anything BIGGER.
Unfortunately at that point the ring was ready and we had to leave.. I've never been more gutted!
