@Meredith80  Thank you for the support. I’ve actually thought about asking someone to bless them.

I am just not sure whether blessing the ring afterwards is possible.. From googling the subject I’ve understood that inanimate objects are not blessed in our church (Evangelical-Lutheran). In the ceremony it is the couple that is actually blessed and not the rings, though the pastor holds the ring(s) in their hand raised for all the folk to see while saying the prayer.

At least I’ve been adamant about wanting to go visit the church we got married at on our first anniversary, so might get something done about the ring “issue” also then. I think just us visiting there to reminisce the day (and what a great first year it has been, struggles and joys) might be enough for me to calm down once and for all.

The center stone in my anniversary ring has a little carbon spot. It is not visible without a loupe, and it’s off to the side so that it’s hidden under a prong. But I know it’s there. Originally, I thought it would bug me to no end. But, surprisingly enough, the opposite has happened. I find I really like knowing that little spot is there. Sometimes, I dig out my loupe just to look at it. Also, the cut on my stone isn’t the highest cut. I think it’s rated at “very good”. But I love how it sparkles. I find it a stunning stone. DH and I talk about, one day, switching it out for something a tad bit larger … but I often feel that I won’t be able to change it. I just love the look of this stone so much.

My ERing is a 5-stone: center and two flanking stones on either side. The side stones are tiny rounds and square-ish baguettes. The baguettes have always seemed dark to me. From the first day I got the ring, I always thought the baguettes were dark. I can see them flash sometimes. I thought I would get used to it, but, unlike the flaws in my anniversary ring center stone, I never have gotten over it. I still love my ring, but those dark baguettes bug me — LOL.

One upside to “birth marks” on our stones is that IF it leaves our care for whatever reason, with someone we don’t necessarily know/love, we can recognize our own stone upon its return. ijs

The prongs on my ring (six prong solitaire) aren’t quite evenly spaced…one is a tiny bit crooked and it throws the spacing off. I was bummed for a few days but now I don’t care. I love my ring as is!

If I admitted how little I know or care about diamonds and mI issues you bees would likely run me off the site. My ring looks like it is backward though regardless of which way I turn it. Maybe my finger is crooked! Haha

@fancykitty  I understand how you feel. Would it be an option to renew your vowels in the church? Me and my husband did that for our five year anniversary with rings and everything. We are also in Scandinavia and did it in a lutheran church.

Can I join? My wedding band has alternating round and marquis diamonds. DH and I designed the ring ourselves and worked with an amazing jeweler. I adore my ring. BUT I didn’t know that the difference in sparkle between the two cuts would be so…noticeable? In overcast/cloudy light the marquis kinda look grey next to the sparkle of my round brilliants. In all other lights the whole ring sparkles like crazy. I have learnt to love the different sparkles. My rings have lots of milgrain and next to the patina’d platinum it looks lovely and vintage.

My diamond has an inclusion thats pretty easy to see from the bottom if you know where to look. I love it! I can always tell that my diamond is mine!

I have a G color amora gem. Though most amora gems are stark white, mine shows alot of warmth sometimes. In certain lighting I would say that it looks warmer than my fb oec moissy did. I’m not sure if it’s because it has a diamond halo that makes the color stand out more but I’d say when most people buy an amora gem ultra they arnt expecting it to show any color. I really think that my stone could have been falsely graded and that it’s more like an I -J in color. Maybe betterthandiamond produced warmer stones than they thought in one of their batches or they didn’t want to grade any of their stones below an H, which would have been a closer color grade for my stone. However this doesn’t bother me, thank goodness I like warm stones or else I’d be a little ticked off. πŸ™‚
