- Wedding: October 2013
This post is almost silly for me to write, but I feel like only other brides-to-be (of which, I know none personally…all of my friends are either already married or single) will understand my pain!!!
I got engaged last week and the ring I chose, being an antique, was not sized before I received it. It is what I feel a one-of-a-kind ring, so I knew that in order to have it, it would eventually have to be sized up from its original 4.5 to a 5.5 once my Fiance proposed and gave it to me. I initially tried wearing the ring as is when the proposal first happened, because I was just SO EXCITED to show it off…I absoultely am obsessed with this ring!!!!! I figured I’d wait until a less busy time (I worked and had tons of homework for two summer courses literally all weekend long) to bring the ring in for re-sizing, and just deal with it being a bit tighter than I’d like. Unfortunately, I got myself in a jam (literally) this past Friday when I woke up and my fingers were swollen from the warm weather we have been having here in the Midwest. Rather than calmly trying to twist the ring off, I began pulling at my finger like a maniac! Long story short, the ring was literally stuck on my finger that whole day and night until the swelling (made worse from my pulling craziness!) went down.
Needless to say, I took the ring in asap after the Memorial Day weekend to get sized. I went yesterday, and though I am SUPER EXCITED to finally be able to wear it all the time once it is done, it will not be ready from the jeweler for about a week.
It has only been one day and I feel like my pet has died or something!!!! I miss my ring SO MUCH!!!! I keep looking at my naked hand and pictures of the ring in longing!
It is so silly to me that I feel this way about an inanimate object, but it has already grown to mean the world to me.
Anyone else had separation anxiety from their ring while getting it sized, repaired, replated, etc???? What silly things did you do to pass the time until you got it back?
