Without realizing it, I actually picked out my own engagement and wedding rings. A normal visit to the shopping mall with my mom, always included a stop at the many jewelry shops in the mall, even before I started dating my husband.
We’d ooh and ahh over all the necklaces, rings, earrings and other pieces. One day I was pointing out a wedding set that particularly appealed to me thinking nothing of it.
Imagine my surprise when my husband proposed and I received that same set!
We’ve been married over 17 years now, and I still enjoy wearing my rings. When I lost a lot of weight, I thought of replacing them, rather than just having them resized and went to sites like Since1910.com to change the color, size, and cut of the stone to customize diamond rings.
I did end up just having my rings resized, as I couldn’t justify the cost of brand new rings, but it would be nice one day maybe for our 25th anniversary or an occasion like that, to have a hand-crafted or designer piece of jewelry to commemorate the date. I think if I came into some $$ right now, I would consider getting a diamond eternity band to wear on my right hand or to change out with my wedding rings.
Do you have a custom designed ring in your jewelry arsenal?
