Yesterday Changed My Life… Jul 26, 2013


Over the past few weeks, I’ve been really stressed out. The Brovet helped clear my mind and allowed me some solitude to figure out where my life was headed. Making this kind of decision is easy, it’s the planning that’s the hardest part.

After three years of dating this woman, I finally made the move and bought her a ring. This is the ring for a girl who refuses to wear diamonds. A 1.5 karat Mine Cut Brilliant diamond, in a hand-carved setting that dates from approximately 1870. It’s one of the rarest stones the seller has seen and let me tell you, she loves it.

So what does this mean for the site? Nothing! Expect the same radness and yes, the occasional sappiness as you’ve come to expect over the years… I’m just incredibly happy right now.

I’m still in Vermont but I’ll be in NYC next week!
