TO – des1982: First off CONGRATULATIONS !!
(BTW, Ring Porn is a required element… *wink*)
EDIT LINE – I see while I was drafting up my reply you’ve now added a pic of your ring. Truly GORGEOUS !!
I can totally relate. Mr TTR and I looked long and hard for 6 full weeks before we found THE RING. It was a momentous occasion for us. (You can read about my finding the ring, at this topic on WBee here = http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/in-the-words-of-etta-james-at-last-my-love-has-come-along-the-ring )
So, 2 weeks later the ring was on my finger… and I’ve been LOVIN’ it ever since
One of my concerns when looking for the ring, was how high the profile was… as I tend to be tough on my jewellery (lol, a leftover from my tom-boy childhood). So I knew I was looking for a ring that didn’t have a high diamond, or anything that pretruded from a clean line.
Thankfully, the ring I chose has a feature diamond that isn’t raised substantially above the rest of the setting.
But I have to admit I still worry about knocking the diamond about… and something bad happening to it so unlike my first Bridal Set (I am an Encore Bride) that didn’t have much in the way of diamonds (circa 1980… when GOLD was expensive enough). I found I don’t wear my E-Ring 24/7×365 because of the fact that the ring is so sparkly and valuable.
I expressed these concerns to Mr TTR, and he has assured me that I can relax, because if “anything was to happen” (and he’s doubtful that it ever would… I am just as per usual worrying about nothing) that the ring is fully insured.
So ya, I agree with the others… get full replacement insurance coverage asap !!
Lol, that doesn’t make my paranoia go away totally… I certainly am far more cautious with this E-Ring than I was my first. And find that I wear it a lot less frequently… still everyday, just not for household cleaning, heavy chores, gardening etc.
Infact owning this beauty, has made me realize that I want my W-Band to be a very plain DURABLE ring that I can wear 24/7×365 and not worry about… essentially NEVER take it off. So I am considering either a Platinum or 10K White Gold Band, both of which will stand up to daily wear and tear.
And now… without further ado… we bring you the obligatory ring porn…
