I love my wedding ring. Darin and I picked it out together and as soon as I saw it, I knew it was the one. I think he did too. My ring just fit me. It wasn't big and flashy, but was a little different than all the other bands. Here are a few pictures of my lovely ring:
So, a month or so ago, I told Darin I wanted to go buy a plain wedding band and I was going to leave my ring back in the states. I went to Jensen Jewelers right here in Hudsonville to check out the bands, but the price of gold is a bit high right now, the "hard metals" (stainless steel and titanium) do not come in my size (I wear a 4) and cannot be re-sized, and the only option left for me,sterling silver, tarnishes and would need to be polished so my finger wouldn't turn green. No thanks. That left me with one option-change my existing ring. I wasn't exactly sure I wanted to do this, because other than being a danger to clothes and small children, I really, really loved my ring. Like a lot.
However, Darin and I talked and agreed that changing my ring was the way to go. Darin didn't really want me to never wear my ring again and they wouldn't have to change the part of my ring that I am most attached to, which is the band. Strange, I know, but I really didn't care about the diamond or the setting. So, a couple weeks ago I brought my ring in and today I picked it up and voila! Here it is:
Just so you know.
