Adopt a Diamond Stories
Story from Melissa Rodriguez
I am a 32yo mother of two beautiful children, eight and four and have been with my husband since we were 16 yrs old. We married very young and at the time could only afford a beautiful little chip of a diamond ring I was so proud to wear. Seven years into our marriage my husband had saved up enough to buy me the ring that I always wanted. It was so beautiful…princess cut with two trillions on each side! We are about to celebrate our 13 wedding anniversary this year (June 21) and It brings me to tears that I no longer have my ring. Since our paychecks have been low because of the recent resecion and we are on a tight budget, we had to pawn my wedding set to pay bills. We were able to pay on it for awhile , but unfortunatly we couldn’t make payments and lost the ring. I have recently been to the pawn shop and have seen my ring on display but it is too expencive that I know I will never be able to buy I back. I hate to see my husbands face when I talk about my ring.I know it hurts him to see me sad. I LOVE him so much and ring or no ring, that will never change. I do hope to be a part of your adopt a diamond program. Thank you so much for your time.
