That's EXACTLY what I would do if I were in your shoes! and I believe the wrap Mico is referring to is this one:http://diamondbistro.com/category/219/Colored-Center-Stone/listings/15895/Pear-shaped-sapphire-wrap!.htmlI love the idea of having CS as sidestones because it really makes the diamond in the center POP! Nom nom!

BF said the same thing last night when he asked what April's birthstone was (her birth month and mine) and I told him it was diamond so we both laughed and agreed maybe his grandmother's birthstone instead! It is definitely an option. How do I find a jeweler that specifies in antiques? I'd love to get the crack fixed at least so if we use the stone we can give the setting back.

(her birthstone/your fiance's birthstone... grandmothers birthstone as the original owner of the setting) Kind of a nice gesture. She's giving you something from her family (the stone) and you can give her something from you (the reset ring).

It is also being appraised so I'm looking forward to getting the details! He should get it back within the next 7-10 days and then the waiting game begins. I'm pretty sure it'll happen on 4th of July. He's horrible with secrets and he's hinted a few things. He says he has no specific plans, just waiting for the right moment to strike him. We have a week at the beach planned starting on 7/16 and I said maybe we'll get to celebrate on vacation if it happens before then and he said that's a pretty safe bet. We're both pretty bad with secrets and I know he's super excited so it'll burn a hole in his pocket once he gets it back! Unfortunately I won't see it again until he's proposing a certain question to me. The wait is all down hill from here though. For the first time in my life I feel like I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be and things are falling into place perfectly. It was a long road to get here with a lot of broken hearts and tears. I never understood what people meant when they would say you shouldn't have to work so hard at a relationship when its the right one. And now I completely get it. All of the ones before were so wrong, and he is so perfect for me and things have just fallen into place perfectly. No stress, no tears, no heart aches, just fun and excitement and teamwork. I just feel so lucky.
