But amidst the wedding whirlwind, let’s not forget the importance of taking care of the symbol of your love – your engagement ring!

A Story (Almost) Gone Wrong!

Balloons are kind of a job requirement at GBF, and Andrew’s love for them runs deep! Unfortunately, it turns out a stunning Le Vian chocolate diamond ring, snagged at an amazing deal at the “Jared store in Brookfield’s annual trunk sale“, isn’t the biggest fan of balloons. Le Vian is known for their beautiful gemstones, and the warranty covers lost or damaged stones (except for the centerstone, of course!).

The truth is, Andrew normally avoids wearing his ring at work for this very reason. He’s known to accidentally pop balloons or leave small tears when tying clusters together – the delicate prongs of the ring just aren’t a match for the balloons’ resilience! This constant brushing against the latex might explain why the stone became loose later that day.

One day, while Andrew and Jarrod were working at the store creating balloon arrangements for upcoming events, a horrifying realization struck Andrew later that evening. The sparkling chocolate diamond was nowhere to be seen! Panic surged as Andrew retraced the events of the day, desperately hoping it hadn’t fallen off during the balloon frenzy. Luckily, Jarrod (always the hero!) came to the rescue. Seeing the look of panic on Andrew’s face, he calmly said, “Wait a minute…” He then explained how, earlier in the day, he’d found a sparkling object on the floor and set it aside, thinking it was just a stray crystal. Turns out, that “stray crystal” was Andrew’s missing diamond!

It’s important to note that everyday wear and tear can also loosen prongs over time. Regular professional inspections are crucial for any delicate jewelry. This will help ensure your treasured pieces stay sparkling and secure for years to come.

Don't Let Your Love Story Get Tarnished!

This close call highlights the importance of regular ring inspections, even for Le Vian pieces with a warranty. A loose prong could mean a lost stone, and replacing a lost gemstone is far more expensive (and stressful!) than having your ring checked and tightened. Plus, most homeowner’s insurance doesn’t cover fine jewelry, so adding a rider to your policy might be a wise move.

Let’s keep those love stories sparkling, just like your ring! We at GBF Bespoke Balloons and Event Services can’t wait to help you celebrate your special day with amazing balloons and photo booths. But remember, schedule those ring inspections too! It’s a small investment that can save you a big headache (and a frantic search for a missing diamond!).
