The site was so informative…but we felt a little nervous about ordering from the web.” Finally, just one week before their marriage, they contacted Greg. “My ring arrived by courier at two o’clock in the morning on New Year’s Day, my wedding day,” marveled Fiona, “and when we later had it appraised for insurance purposes, it was valued at three times what we had paid.”

Six kids and household expenses had always gotten in the way. But he promised her a diamond, and now she received a dazzling ring with eight inlaid diamonds across a slick gold band.
