    For me the ring isn’t what matters most, obviously my fiance does and ouco marriage. But it is a very important symbol of everything we are. I look at it and see his hard work to buy me a beautiful ring when we were very poor, the love he had for me when he took hours to find the style I like, and for us he had to wait a whole year before my dad would give him the blessing so it also symbolizes the patience he had to wait to give it to me! Yes it’s just jewlery, and if I didn’t have it I’d still marry him, but its an important and beautiful symbol as well

    @bkrocks13:  I have an emotional attachment to my ring…..it sounds weird….but im incredibly sentimental about it….its a part of the best day of my life thus far….and well I am pretty sentimental about other things too…..but this is the biggest for me, i dont want to trade it in….ever….i feel naked with out it….ive tried on other rings and nothing was right….because they arent this one….i think its because i NEVER wear jewlery (not even earrings)….and this is the only thing I always wear.

    I’m emotionally attached to my ring, and I’d be a little heartbroken if something happened to it. Not anything like the wreck I’d be if something happened to the man who gave it to me, but still. It’s my dream ring, and an almost constant physical reminder that I have an incredible man who loves me and wants to keep me and help make all my dreams come true. It’s nice to have a beautiful rock and piece of metal, especially when I need reassurance and he’s not physically there.

    I’m emotially attached to my ring, to give you an idea I woke up yelling once from a nightmare where I thought someone stole it from me.  I guess some people will find that sily.  My fiance took about year to design it/get it made and it’s one of a kind.

    @bkrocks13:  Every piece of my ring was part of gifts & heirlooms from my husbands family.  There is so much family history melted down into this little piece.  My husband even spent hours picking pieces of gold out of quartz to use for it.  We went to a friend who’s a wonderful artist and designed it with him exactly the way we wanted it.  I’m sure I’d be attached even just to someothing beautiful he picked out for me, but this really means a lot.

    I did wear one of the heirloom rings for a while before we designed this one and I had a hard time melting it down to make this one.  But in the long run, I’m happy.  I really love this ring :).

    It’s deeply important to me because it was my grandma’s ring.

    While I don’t believe a piece of a jewelry makes a marriage it’s my symbol to the world that I’m taken and have given everything I am to another person.  The type of ring (how big the diamond is, how expensive it was) is not important at all to me.

    I’m married with or without my rings and I only wear them when i leave the house. If I lost them they could be replaced, I can’t replace DH. I never get emotional about items or things. My relationship is what matters.

    You should have allowed multiple choices in the poll. It’s very sentimental to me, but it was also very important to look the way I wanted and be something I’m willing to wear for the rest of my life.

    I’m emotionally attached for the following reasons:

    1. Dragonflies have a special meaning to both myself and my husband

    2. My center stone is a color changer. Most of the time it is a shade of my favorite color purple but other times its green my husband’s favorite color. It also changes other colors too but the purple and green are the most significant.

    3. This was my dream ring, and my husband made it a priority for me to have that dream, one I never expected.

    4. It symbolizes our union and agreement to be there for each other for all eternity.

    I think of it as a beautiful gift from my fiancé that I get to wear for the rest of my life. I don’t thi it symbolizes how much he loves me, or how much money we have, or even everything we are and have been through, though.

    My wedding band is sentimental, but I wouldn’t die or dwell on it forever if it were to get lost or stolen. It’s just an object and doesn’t take away from or enhance my marriage – which is the important part!

    DH and I worked very very very hard to get where we are today (life-changing events, cross country moves, new jobs, deaths of those close to us, job loss). This ring is the culmination of all of those events and how each one made us stronger as a couple, brought us closer together and more in love.

    He knows how much I love jewelry and wanted me to feel special and loved every time I look at my finger (not that I don’t in general, but it’s always good to have a reminder)
