My fiancé and I have decided to take a weekend trip to Cleveland. It is only a three-hour ride from where we live and we have both been dying to visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We are huge music lovers so we are excited to see memorabilia and other collectibles from some of our favorite musicians and song writers. While I am there, I would also like to find a diamond bracelet. My fiancé promised to get me one while we are on our trip. I have a thirtieth birthday coming up very soon and he said that the bracelet will be both my birthday gift and my wedding present. I was more than fine with that since it will be a very expensive gift. Well, not that expensive. I was informed by my fiancé that I need to find inexpensive diamond bracelets priced under seven hundred dollars in Cleveland, Ohio.
During our ride to Cleveland, I thought about what type of bracelet I might want. Do I want it to be all diamonds, some diamonds with other gemstones? Do I want yellow gold, white goldor sterling silver? I guess dreaming about what I want will not be any good if I cannot find my diamond bracelet. At that point, I stopped thinking about bracelets and took in the pretty scenery on our drive.
When we got to our hotel, we checked in and headed towards downtown Cleveland. It was too late to go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame so we thought we would enjoy the city and find a nice place to eat dinner. There were many great places to eat, but we chose a quaint little bistro where we could sit outside. The weather was not too cold and the sun was just starting to set so we figured we would enjoy what little daylight was left.
After dinner, we took a stroll through the streets of Cleveland and took in the sights. I never realized how beautiful this city was and how much there is to do here. And because it was Friday night, it was bustling with people going from one place to another. While on our walk, we came across a jewelry store that looked like it was about to close up for the night. I peeked inside and saw a lot of nice stuff so I rushed in before the owner closed everything.
“Hi,” I said. “Do you mind if I take a look around and see what you have?”
“Not at all,” the man said. “Take your time and let me know if you need any help.”
I walked around with my fiancé and stopped at the bracelet display. I figured since I was there, I might as well start looking to see if I can find my gift. As I peered inside, there it was—the most beautiful diamond bracelet I had ever seen.
The bracelet was white gold and had a pattern of round sapphires that were surrounded by tiny little diamonds with bigger diamonds in between each sapphire. Aside from how breathtaking it was, it had blue in it which is perfect for my wedding since I needed to wear something blue. You know what they say—something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Well, this was both new and blue. I asked the man if I could see the bracelet. He came over and took it out of the case for me.
“Wow,” he said. “That looks gorgeous on you.”
“I have to agree,” said my fiancé. “What do you think?”
My first thought was that there was no way I was going to walk out of the store without this bracelet, but then I remembered that it had to be less than seven hundred dollars. I asked the man how much the bracelet cost. He took it from me and went to check the tag which had a bunch of codes on it that made no sense to me.
“Okay,” he started to say. “The bracelet is eight hundred and fifty dollars.”
I told the man that was way over budget. He asked me how much I wanted to spend and I told him it had to be less than seven hundred dollars.
“Well, I may be able to work something out for you,” he said. “I just got in a whole bunch of new inventory so I need to get rid of some of the stuff that has been hanging around here too long. This bracelet is one of those. How about if I give it to you for six hundred and ninety-five dollars? Would that work?”
I looked at my fiancé and he shook his head yes. I cannot believe I got this bracelet for that kind of price. So far this trip is turning out to be terrific and we have not really done much yet. I know when I return I will be talking more about thisunbelievably inexpensive diamond bracelet I found inCleveland that I found more than I will about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
