This picture was taken on my wedding day. My Mother in Law made that beautiful pillow for us BUT the piece of jewelry I am showcasing is the one that answers todays blog question.
What makes my wedding set so special to me is that it came after the sentiment. I had a wedding ring before many years ago and it came devoid of the sentiment that I would expect to be attached to it. Ultimately I got turned off on the notion and the ‘story’ behind the ring. I was looking for the meaning – you could keep the jewelry.
Then I met my husband, who asked me to marry him and didn’t have a ring. I accepted his proposal without any hesitation because it spoke to me in volumes about the way he felt. We were ‘engaged’ for a couple of months and I was open with the engagement and even if someone had some ‘feelings’ about my ring finger being empty, they didn’t say anything. For some reason the ring would just be a symbol of metal – all the feeling everyone could see a mile away.
I remember walking in the bedroom. At the time we were sleeping on two mattresses on the floor (don’t ask, lol). I plopped on the bed and he plopped down beside me and the maroon box came out. He opened the box and there was my engagement ring. I was thrilled!! When I put it on electricity went throught my body and we were sealed.
Our wedding bands were simple from the mall – he lost his oh I don’t know a month after we got married, lol lol This move looped right back around to the way I felt when I didn’t have one at the time of engagement – it really was a piece of metal cause our relationship was SOLID.
My wedding set is my most important piece of jewelry because it truly is a piece of metal that shows others our bond – our relationship is so much more than these rings.
