With our buddy Tom Shane
We arrived a few minutes early & Abby let us all in when the event started. Checking in was a breeze & we hit up Honest Tea for a bottle of peach white tea before roaming into the engagement/wedding rings area. Lisa welcomed us & asked if we've ever been here before to which I replied "Yes, Steve has sold me all of my rings" & to which another salesman replied "Oh I'm so sorry! (jokingly)" Surprisingly, my main guy Steve was there & was assisting my lady friend the whole time on her quest to find her perfect future engagement ring! Did we find it? We sure did! However, only the set is shown below, not the center gem, muahahaa :P

Afterwards, we hit up all the rest of the food including bubbly champagne from Segura Viudas, little bundlets from Nothing Bundt Cake, chocolates from Baci & a platter of cheese, fruit & bread. Pop Up Gelato was also there with 3 fabulous gelato flavors: coppa mista, pistachio & green tea. I totally opted for the coppa mista, yum!

At the end of the event, the manager was out by the Yelp table with a goodie bag for each of us to take home. I told him about my wonderful experience in the past with Steve & he was happy about that :P
Goodie bags for us!
What did the goodie bag contain? A silver polishing cloth, 2 chapsticks & a $50 gift card! Yes, you read that right, a $50 gift card to Shane Co.! I could not believe each Yelp Elite & their +1 got a $50 gift card *jaw drop*
Silver polishing cloth
$50 gift card, heck yea!
Thanks Abby, Shane Co. & the other vendors for an awesome & classy event at my favorite jewelry store! :)
