It has about 1 ¾ carat total weight worth of diamonds, very nice quality, I think she'll love it.'

Erick is stationed in North Carolina but Spoke with us on Skype.

 ‘I was excited and surprised I'd actually won.' he said.

 ‘At first Erick told me that we had a problem with our relationship and I thought what is wrong? So he told me to go to my computer and go to this web site, didn't see anything about a ring so I was just looking, he said I think we should go to the next step and I said are you kidding! Really?' said Nicole McDowell, ‘I'm going to wear it, but I can't until he asks me!'
