I’m just wondering how many of you, if any, have heavily nature-themed, leafy, viney, etc., rings. I am drooling over these:
Especially the ring set. . . oh my. Has anyone heard of these etsy sellers before?
Does anyone have anything like these? If so, how do they wear? I’m a big ring-wearer and would wear my rings constantly (except if cleaning or doing really dirty, hard work) so I’m staying away from anything too delicate or with points sticking out.
Show me pictures!! 🙂

@Creiddylad: Another bee (ah, the name escapes me) got her rings from Kate Szabone (the third one on there). If you search for the name of the seller, you should find pics o f her rings!

Here’s one from the etsy seller i used for my wedding band
-Not my ring, mine was lily flowers in silver, like 350$ i believe. Cheyenne is super great to work with and has lots of gorgeous rings!

My first engagement ring was from Bandscapes on Etsy. It was this one (http://www.etsy.com/listing/79162330/kijani-wedding-set-engagement-ring-and) in white gold with an emerald. They were a great shop to work with, and the ring is of great quality and is very pretty. I ultimately retired it in favor of something a little more traditional (moissanite solitaire).
That being said, the ring would have been great if it had been really what I wanted in my heart (sounds so cheesy, ha), but that doesn’t reflect at all on the shop or the ring quality. It’s a really nice ring and I wear it on my right hand now. If you want a nature-inspired ring, I would definitely recommend them!
This is the ring the night I got it:

@love108: Hey thats ME!
Yes I have a nature themed ring and I love it! Kate Szabone did it and she did a wonderful job.
The picture is in that other thread, but I would like to say that having a custom made ring with wedding band in platinum was way more reasonable than we ever imagined. The oval branch ring was the origional ring we used for inspiration and then kind of got wild from there.
Best of luck and I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

@love108: indeed they were, I saw the phrase “Nature themed rings” and I think my heart skipped a beat.
@Creiddylad: I don’t know if you have seen this one (also by kate) but I am absolutely smitten with it. it was the alternitive to the one I got and though I am glad I got the one I did, Dh is going to get me this one for an anniversary. He is going to see how much gold it will take and probably end up panning for it this summer, so there is no tell how many anniversaries from now it might be lol.

They have a lot of really beautiful nature-inspired rings. We were looking at these before we accidentally found an antique one we liked better (pics when he actually HANDS IT OVER TO ME lol)

@love108: I’m also waiting, actually! I guess when you sign up for the boards you’re required to specify a wedding date and location. . . I live in VT, but my wedding date is kind of made up because of that sign-up requirement (although hopefully the real one will be sometime around then).
Anyway, places I might want to get married in the state:
Old Stone House Museum: http://oldstonehousemuseum.org/
Other lovely places that do weddings are Shelburne Farms, various places in the town of Stowe, and Sleepy Hollow Ski area http://www.skisleepyhollow.com/ 🙂
