not thinking about wedding/marriage, or getting antsy/upset about the fact that neither are probably in the cards for me for another few years.
But gosh doggit I asked SO if he could take my [promise] ring in to Zales for it’s 6 month checkup per the warranty we got for it, and I couldn’t help but day dream about a bigger ring coming back when we went to pick it up. And of course, like always it takes them at least 20 days to send it out, have it re-rhodium plated, and returned. When he told me this, like always I was bummed. (What if that was my wedding ring? Am I supposed to just go ringless for 20 days twice a year? HELLO!?)But he stressed that at least it would be back in time for the holidays which was the main objective to asking him to take it in for me while I was at work. And of course, my mind wandered to “just in time for the holidays to show off my new engagement ring?”
Oh, I was doing so well….

You don’t need to have a ring replated twice a year, fyi, unless your body chemistry is one that’s particularly rough on the coating. As a rule, only have it replated if it looks yellow–not because the six months are up!
I do hope you get a nice surprise for the holidays, though. 🙂

@Mrs Grape: The ring was only $400 and has been resized about three times making the coating on the bottom thin and turn yellow before the 6 months is up. So unfortunately, unless I want to suck it up and deal with a yellow ring (not a fan on my skin tone) I have to send it out.
Also, there is a possibility that it’ll turn into my engagement ring once day, so I’m hoping come wedding/proposal time to get a wedding band that is maybe platinum, or made in my size instead of resized, and perhaps this will keep the coloring of it longer. That way when I’m sending it in every 6 months, I’ll still have something on my finger in it’s place.
