We're really going to have wedding rings!  We've been married a year and a half...

Here's the first mock-up from the jeweler:  white and 18 karat gold,  tiny hands of Fatima pointing to a semi-precious stone in the center.  I got back to the jeweler asking for smaller stone, bigger hands; so we'll see what he comes up with.

They are expensive!  I can't believe we're going to pay this much for rings.  Am I crazy?  Geeze, I could probably find something for a couple of hundred bucks.  My ring from my previous marriage was cheap. What if we pay all this money and then lose them?  Should I insure them?

Any married people out there who want to share how they made decisions regarding the cost of rings?


  1. Looks like a great design! I'm not much of a jewelry wearer, so we went simple years ago for rings. I don't even wear a ring any more, sometimes hubby will. We did get rings I think for our 25th anniversary (LOL can't remember); they were just bands and not terribly expensive. I think if they are of any value, I would get them insured just to be on the safe side.


  2. Beautiful. I say go with what feels right. For my wedding ring, Bing chose a lovely aquamarine because she said it was the color of my eyes. That meant more to me than rubies...

  3. Looks gorgeous.
    Here in the UK I am constantly seeing an advert for engagement rings, and I quote: A months salary for a lifetime.
    Or it says something like that. Mine did not cost a months salary and one of the diamonds has fallen out! But I love it all the same. Although I would probably love it more with all the diamonds in tact.
    My worldly advice? Go for it, you deserve it. X

  4. PS And for peace of kind, insure. I would.
