…granted I hinted at Mr. W that I liked a certain store as we went to the Walmart across the street. But he happily agreed to go in with me (I have a serious superstition problem, for example I could go in and pick out 3 rings, put the sparkle on my finger and then something could go very wrong) and help me. We also found out that we have different tastes in jewelery. Thank God, that Mr. W is so great because he kept saying “It’s going to be on your finger forever, and I want you to love it.”
I wrote on here that I didn’t know what I wanted in a ring and you all had great suggestions, but I went in and I fell in love. I thought I wanted something different, something unique, but I did not want to have it overwhelm me. I tried on pretty much every ring in there and the one I didn’t take off was a simple round diamond, with a halo and small diamonds down the side. I didn’t take any pictures, because I gave Mr. W three choices to decide which one he liked most.
The second ring is a braided band, part covered in diamonds, part just silver. With a higher set center round stone, and one very small diamond on the side. I really did like it, I loved how it fit on my hand, but it just didn’t catch my eye like the first one always did.
The problem with me is I am always comparing. I did find one that I liked, but it looked too much like my mothers wedding ring, or one like my best friends engagement ring, etc. Thinking back, I wish I wouldn’t have done that…because there were a few that I loved but just reminded me of my mom. Does anyone else feel that way? Should I go back and start over? Any advice?
