- Wedding: July 2012
I am so incredibly giddy! I have only been married three months and my husband said I can design my own gift! It’s what I wanted for my e-ring, but I didn’t have time to do it…and he couldn’t afford it either. Now however, he has a great job and says he wants me to have the ring I always dreamed of for possibly Christmas, dating anniversary, or wedding anniversary! AHHHH!
He bought me a super cute pearl ring on our minimoon to Monterey. I love it. It was only $15…cheaply made, but adorable. It has a oval shaped pearl as the center stone, and six side CZ that form a triangle on each side of the pearl. The Pearl and the CZ are nested in a tapered high setting that really shows off the pearl beautifully. And the band itself is plain and thin, so the ring as a whole is simple, elegant, and classy. =)
I told him I wanted to gold or platinum plate it if possible, and change the side stones out for garnet (his bstone). His response that if we were going to go through that much trouble to make the original ring durable, then we said just have a replica made in better quality materials to begin with.
AND THEN, he says that, “This way you can customize it special just for you, if you decide to add Verragio-esque details from the side view.” I LOVE HIM! ^^
