Wedding bands are ready...not!

When we ordered the engagement ring I asked for diamonds and sapphires in the band. We set it up so that my fh would pick up the ring and I wouldn't get to see it until he proposed. So, when he proposed I was shocked to see that my ring had no sapphires in it! We discussed it and decided that it looked beautiful the way it was and that I could get sapphires in the wedding band. So, I went today to pick up our wedding bands... and no sapphires! Again! Ugh. The jeweler promptly apologized after remembering that we talked about the sapphires for over an hour. It is a custom ring and it will need to be recast, but luckily they still have the mold so it will only take a week or two this time. The funny thing is that the ring without the sapphires is worth $200 more than we paid, and he thinks it might be tough to sell because it is a size 4 1/2. He is going to engrave our rings for free to help "make up" for the mistake. Our first dance song is "Baby it's Fact" by HelloGoodbye. So, we will have our rings engraved with...

His Ring: 08.09.08 Baby its fact My Ring: our love is true

The date won't fit on mine, but I think it is cute that combined our rings will have the chorus of the song and our wedding date. :-)

That is such a cute idea!

I wish we could get something engraved but I'm having a 2.5mm band, so you can't really read anything that small.

That really is unbelievable they 'forgot' the sapphires. Um, what?!

They're charging you for the old ring that they messed up on? That makes no sense.

blablover5 -- no, they are not charging for the ring they messed up on. They are making me a new one. However, if I had decided that I wanted to keep it, it is worth more than the ring I wanted. Kinda funny.
