yesterday we picked up my custom wedding ring from Green Lake Jewelry Works. why custom? well, because I have tiny fingers. the ring pictured below is the ring that my ring was modeled after, only my sapphires are blue. It's tiny and delicate and I won't be wearing an engagement ring along side it because, well, I guess I'm just not that kind of girl. Right now I am wearing the third of my engagement rings. the first was the one G used to propose to me. it was a full size and a half too big and a little cumbersome. the second was the one I traded it in for, but it was actually a little too big and sharp, so it cut into the sides of my other fingers. It was also very plain, but I wanted a ring on my finger NOW! my third engagement ring is a cheap $33 set of silver stackers. The total expenditure of my rings? $52 + tax. eh. what can I say, I'm just not into diamonds. What was it Holly Golightly said ? "diamonds are tacky for women under 40." okay. that can be my excuse. and sapphires were where the "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" came from. they are the ultimate wedding gem. screw DeBeers.
isn't it pretty?
now I just have to order his.
