Good news!!!

Ok So I GOT MY RING!!!

On Wednesday Cam and I went into Ben Moss and spoke with the manager...
I gave her my sad story of not having my ring for 8 WEEKS and how I had to take my engagement photo's without it..
and how it's caused me so much stress...
I started tearing up..
I wish I could say I was faking it, but I really was that emotional over it.

She was really nice to me and asked me what I wanted her to do. I told her we were thinking about buying our wedding bands there as well, but we felt like we deserved a Discount. So we picked out our wedding bands and she offered us $100 dollars off, and no taxes... and I told her that I still didn't feel like that was good enough, as we have already been through so much. So she took off $150 off my engagement ring as well, I really do feel much better about everything now!

So on Thursday I wrote my Last exam, and got my engagement ring finally!!!! Such a good day!

I need some advice...

Ok So Cam and I got engaged at the beginning of March, He ordered my engagement ring a week before then, When he ordered they told him 2-4 weeks... he was debating waiting for the ring till he proposed... (SO glad he didn't) Anyway I was so excited/Anxious for my ring that at week 3 I made him call and see if it was here yet. They (being some random lady at Ben Moss) told us that it wasn't in yet, but we should try again in a week...

So we try again the next week, and Same thing it wasn't here it yet (it had now been the 4 weeks)... this time the lady got our information, went to go look it up informed us that it was coming.. and was expected to come in on April 10th... another 2 week away... I was a little upset, but 2 weeks wasn't that BIG of a deal.

April 10th came, and Cam and I called the store... and apparently it missed getting on that shipment, but they were getting another on on thursday and it'd FOR SURE be on that one (literally their words....) So then Yesterday Cam and I call Ben Moss again, (I was so excited to finally have my ring) and the lady informed us that it wasn't on that shipment so we asked her if she knew where it was.... and apparently they don't even know the shipping company... and every other sales lady who we talked to just lied to us... Anyway the point of the story being... they have no idea where it is... according to the last lady we talked to, custom orders always take 6-8 weeks, and has no idea why they told us 2-4 and kept saying it'd come in on the next shipment....

I'm honestly just so turned off from Ben Moss right now, I'm debating if I even want this ring anymore...

I just feel like every sales lady we talked to before now just told us that it was coming the next week just so they could get off the phone with us.

Mostly i'm just frustrated because it's been 7 weeks now.... 7 weeks of people asking to show them my ring (which I wouldn't mind if I actually had it)..... 7 weeks of me going "I don't have it, it's coming on (whatever day they told me at the time)"

So, anyway... i'm seriously considering just trying to find another ring... the problem is... I really did fall in LOVE with this one...

so here is a picture of it for everyone who asks what it looks like... sorry it's not on my finger, and we'll see if this is even the ring I end up with... (Ben Moss better give me a good deal for having to wait so long)





should I find a new ring, since i'm seriously angry with Ben Moss.... or be a pushover and still buy this one?
