If you could have a one minute dance party at your desk, what song would you pick?
Prince-“You don’t have to be Rich”
We worked with Bario Neal to design a custom engagement ring. We were upfront with our (modest-ish) budget, and they were unphased and never pushed us beyond it. The design process over email was friendly, and then we went in person to try on a few styles, narrow down options, and put down a deposit. Everyone in the shop was helpful and knowledgeable and gave us pertinent information to make a decision. Ring was made well within the time quoted and I wear it 24/7! Super comfy, super elegant, exactly what I wanted. Going to an ethical jeweler was important to us, as well as an LGBTQ friendly one. The fact that I know what mine in Australia my sapphire came from is very cool.
Maybe that they were in Philly instead of DC? But that's not a real con.
