Did you look at rings together?
Not really. I once showed him a photo of the style I liked. His response was, “But it’s so small.”
Do you like your ring? Did you from the beginning?…and be honest!
I absolutely love my ring. It’s not something that I would have selected at a jewelry store — and that’s probably because it doesn’t exist at a jewelry store. Alan selected the diamonds from a diamond auction and designed the setting. Yes, he really is that talented, and yes, I really am the most blessed woman in the world.
How often do you wear your rings?
I take it off when I shower, apply lotion and sometimes when I type.
Do you clean your rings?
Yes — I have jewelry cleaner at home and have had it cleaned at Zales on occasion.
What went through your mind the very first time you saw your ring?
That is very large.
I wish I had something more romantic or philosophical to impart, but I imagine that much more cannot be expected from a woman who simply said “yes,” without crying or squealing or showing much more emotion than a smile.
