Warning: boring wedding related detail ahead



Hey, so here is my ring.It's an Alexandrite stone--They change colors, which was the selling point for Sam. So, I took 2 pictures, one in natural light, so you can see two of the colors. In fake light, it's more of a purple. In the natural light, it's more green. When Sam first pitched the idea of a color-changing stone, I had visions of a mood ring, so this came as quite a relief. It's a little bigger than what I was expecting stonewise--which is weird because they showed us the size when we ordered it, but I guess it didn't occur to me at the time that I'd actually be wearing it on my finger.. But big is not bad. I just feel like I could take someone's eye out with it. Or my own eye, really...I'm hoping that feeling goes away shortly.

That's really pretty. Will you get a band to go with it, or just wear that? Personally, I think diamonds are kind of boring. My ring is a sapphire, and I love it for being so dark blue and mysterious. Plus, when you wear something every day of your life, you need it to not show grime and dog gunk very easily. I'm sure you know all about that. :)

yeah, we were kinda anti-diamond--both of us. I mean, they're pretty, but they're not ME, really. I wanted something different.

I have no idea about wedding bands, what did you do?

I just didn't get a wedding band. My ring wasn't made as an engagement ring, so we would have needed to get one specially made. And anyway, one ring is plenty to keep track of. I'm not a big jewelry person.
