Great job Janster! I have to agree you ( or me ) will never see a ring like that outside of a jewelry store

Good feelings all around:spin::spin:

Pardon the Texas lingo-but YA'LL are an awesome couple. I wish ya'll the best in life and continued happiness.

Thanks for sharing one of the best success stories I have read in a long time. The value of those rings goes way beyond money. You performed a great service and were a great example for our hobby.

I love the story, finding the ring for the happy couple is sooo cool. But the part that's really astounding is the random find of the $1700 gold ring while you were looking for the other one. What are the odds of that?

What a day!

Wow! Just wow! You are definitely the ring master! WTG on the hunt, good things happen to good people and fortune rained down on the search party with two happy endings! Excellent story Janster, I see another White's story in your future. A tip of my hat and a hearty congratulations to you sir, well deserved!
