    Hello Rabab, and welcome to the forum.

    Note:
    1- The word you want there is "gap"; "gab" is also a word in English, but it has a completely different meaning. www.onelook.com
    Practise listening to and pronouncing "p" and "b".

    2- If she knew about the ring, then "the" is okay; otherwise, use "an" instead of "the".

    3- The last bit "in an unbelievable way" seems too strong, and I don't think it really fits in with the rest of that sentence.

    What about exhilarated/thrilled/blown away?
    Those are all good by themselves. But you "have" to follow them with "in an unbelievable way".
