- Wedding: May 1993
When my DH and I were married way back in 1993, I definitely had the man of my dreams…but the ring of my dreams…not so much! I never had much money growing up, so I never spent a lot of time dreaming about the “perfect” thing I’d like to have.
After four years of marriage we came into a little bit of money, and I had an extremely flecky .75ct oval diamond set into my slightly thick, ribbon style ArtCarved wedding band. I had always known I wanted a bigger diamond than I had in my engagement ring (which was a .33), and if it had some flecks in it, well that was okay with me!!! Then two years ago I wanted to go to a white gold setting, and bought my current ring on sale at Macy’s. While it was sparkly, I realized it definitely wan’t the right ring for me.
So now we have reached our 20th wedding anniversary, and I will be 50 years old this year. My husband said that for this very special year, he wanted me to have EXACTLY what I wanted as an “upgrade” ring. While we are much more financially secure now than we we were back in 1993, I still wasn’t willing to go TOTALLY berserk…
So I looked and looked and looked and came upon the EXACT ring of my dreams… It is now being made for me, and I will have it in 4-6 weeks. Here is what the sample looks like on my pinkie! It’s a Simon G (1498) set with a .93 VS1, H, XXX round brilliant stone, and I am simply overjoyed now that I have both the man of my dreams AND the ring of my dreams!
