About one month ago I noticed that my wedding ring was smashed...bad. One would think that I would actually recall something happening considering it was so disfigured, but alas, I don't.
I need to get it fixed. I haven't yet so currently I am wearing another of my rings until I get my wedding ring back.
Although I love having a wedding ring, I am not particularly attached to this particular ring. We married when we were poor, nineteen year olds. We didn't have money for anything extravagant but this ring just about broke the bank for us. I am totally ok with having a small ring. That has never bothered me in the slightest. The only regret I have is that the ring is yellow gold rather than white gold as I don't wear anything yellow gold.
Over the years The Designer and I have talked about getting new rings (he's not particularly attached to his either) but the rings have never made it to the top of our priority list so we've never saved the money for new ones.
When I discovered my ring smashed a while back I started teasing The Designer, telling him that it was surely a sign that it was time to get a new ring. And, besides...we are going to be celebrating 13 years of marriage and I am just about certain that a new wedding ring is the perfect gift for a 13 year celebration!!! He always rolls his eyes and tells me to keep dreaming.
Then, this weekend, totally out of the blue he says to me, "Lets start looking for new rings...I think it is time."
Did he just say we can get new rings?
So, now that I have "permission" to shop for a new ring, I have no idea what I would even get...so, off to the stores I'll go.
I love that we didn't buy one before now. I would hate to think of financing a ring...it would be silly in this economy. It will be much more satisfying looking at a shiny new ring knowing that we saved, paid for it and earned it through our years of marriage! :)
Any suggestions out there of what I should get?
This is one that I *think* I like, but of course, once I see it in person, I'll may think it is gaudy or something. My concern with this one is that it might be too tall on my finger...hopefully I'll go see it in person soon. My big draw to this one is that it is unique (or at least I think it is...I really haven't been in the ring market for a long time so maybe it is very common, IDK)
