My fi and I placed our order for our traditional Mohawk wedding bands this weekend with a Mohawk silversmith we’re fond of. I don’t think I’ve been as satisfied with any piece of the wedding planning as I have with this piece. The silversmith has been paid in full and is going to start work on our bands with us in mind. It means so much to us. My fi is Mohawk and was adopted into a white family. Getting Mohawk wedding bands is one of the steps he’s making towards his ethnic heritage, and a step that I’m taking by his side. It’s just really satisfying.

@eholland: That sounds really nice! I’m glad you’re doing something meaningful to you. Personally, I’m not familiar with Mohawk rings, so I’d love to see pics! 🙂

@FutureMrsBondo: Oh, sure, here they, are sterling silver with purple and white wampum shell (a particular kind a sea shell found on the east coast–Mohawk Country) inlay.
