I woke up this morning and my instagram looked something a little like that…so exciting! Think Day Two is going to take some beating as you all have so many lovely stories behind your beautiful rings. Mine is a rather whiney one…sorry!So, as I mentioned yesterday Michael picked out my ring with a little help from my sister. I love my ring, but at 20/21 years old I didn’t really think long term in regards to what else I may wear. I wear my gold signet ring and thin gold band on my right hand. Whilst I dont mind that my metals don’t match, my skin tone has changed a little since I was younger and I think it looks better with gold.
I put forward to Michael that we swap my beautiful platinum, 3 diamond engagement ring, and platinum wedding band for a gold set. I thought he would care, he would be upset that I wouldn’t be wearing the ring that he had chosen, nor the ring we stood at the altar with but actually, he said he didn’t mind at all. Whilst I have loved wearing it for 6 years, I think I am ready to update it to something I will wear for the rest of my life. Have any of you done this or do you think it is an awful thing to do? I am not really a sentimental person, the symbol of the ring means more to me than the actual thing itself.
I am looking for a really skinny gold band, something unique, then a small(ish) solitaire diamond, I don’t particularly like blingy rings. They remind me of Elizabeth Duke or, they look fake and tacky (I also find Americans wear lots of the larger engagement rings?) If you have seen anything let me know!
Here are some of my favourites of yours! The first especially which belongs to @OrnerDe
