Fixer Upper Joanna Gaines Refused To Upgrade Her Engagement Ring
Fixer Upper Couple Chip and Joanna Gaines are known for giving old things a fresh new look. But we just learned for Joanna Gaines that some things are just irreplaceable!
At the couple’s 12-year anniversary party, Chip surprised Joanna with a special guest. It was Billy Holder, the same jeweler responsible for her original ring. Billy brought with him an array of beautiful diamonds so that Joanna could choose a replacement for her engagement ring.
“He [Chip] knows you love the setting, but he wants you to be able to pick out a better diamond like your mom did,” Billy told Joanna.
But Joanna Gaines refuses to upgrade the ring that means so much to her. She looked Billy in the eye and flat out told him no!
“It wasn’t a ‘perfect’ diamond, but it was perfect for me. I felt bad that Billy wasn’t going to make the big sale he was hoping for that day, but I don’t ever want to replace that diamond or that ring. To me, my ring is part of our story,” Joanna wrote in the couple’s new book, The Magnolia Story.
We all know that Joanna Gaines love her some “character” but we think it’s because she is full of it herself. What a way to show what really matters!
