- Wedding: September 2006
Hi all! I’m brand new to the board, but I’ve been drooling over the ring posts since Thanksgiving. 🙂 Long story short (hm, probably not short enough):
My mom gave me her diamond from my dad (who passed away 2.5 years ago) during our trip home for the holiday. She said he came to her in a dream a couple years ago asking her to give it to me and to tell me he’s sorry and he loves me (we had a huge falling out and had been estranged for awhile). It took her this long to be able to let go of it. Meant so much to me!
Annnnd, I never had an engagement ring, even though I’ve been married for 5 years. I have always just worn my plain channel-set wedding bands, and hoped that some day I’d be surprised with a nice rock. 🙂 So you can imagine my excitement.
I wasted no time, and had the diamond set in a setting I fell in love with. It has 5 main stones, one for each year we’ve been married! Here is the pic from the website:
I didn’t want to be limited when picking out a ring to matching my wedding band, so I WAS going to wear it on my right hand.
BUUUUUT, now that I have it, I keep trying it on my left hand with my band, and I’ve been thinking it could maybe work?? I found a local jeweler and am waiting for a quote on adding milgrain/carving to make them “go” better… and of course dipping my wedding band to make it whiter… what do you all think?
I’ve seen some lovely and unique match-ups of wedding bands and engagement rings on here, so I really appreciate your opinions! Here’s a pic of what they currently look like together (new ring is not sized for left hand, and excuse the scratches and yellowing of my wedding band!):
