ring confessions

talk about serious fatty wedding bling....Tiffany's

A couple years ago (perhaps longer???) My Guy asked me what kind of engagement ring style I liked. I knew instantly. (hehe...I know, sorta lame, but I'm being honest here.) I told him I wanted a super skinny eternity band. He was pretty shocked, because, well, most girls we know are all about the fatty bling. But, I was certain that that was what I liked.

Don't get me wrong, fatty bling is super luxurious and fancy...but I wear scrubs every day....go through about 40 latex gloves per hand...and wear easy breezy cotton clothes and/or hoodies the rest of the time. Fatty bling on my finger just doesn't seem right.

So great - I know what I like and what would suit me best. Then. I waivered. Because I'm apparantly weak and easily influenced. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Friend: you CAN'T use an eternity band for an engagement ring! That's an ANNIVERSARY band. Everybody knows that!
Me: Ooo.

ie II:
Sis: you might want a diamond ring someday and could be sad that you don't have one. You don't want to look back and regret that.
Me: Mmm.

But now...I say = I like what I like. I like that they are reasonable and lovely. And, honestly, I really like plain bands now...like...a lot. Simple is me I guess. I just just have to continue to listen to my own heart...and not be swayed by the opinions/concerns/desires of others during this whole fantastic journey of life.

After all, diamonds aren't my best friend...My Guy is.


  1. Good! Do what you want. It's so hard to not get caught up in the ring-size contest that every girl I know goes through. Sigh.

  2. Honey. Get the eternity band. I love them too. I have a very slim one from the 30's with sapphires and teeny diamonds for the wedding, and I might move my small engagement ring from the 20's to my other hand at that point.

    And listen, if at some point you want a diamond, you'll get one. As a anniversary ring. Everyone knows that ;) One of my friends says large diamonds are absurd on young women. They are only acceptable on women old enough to have EARNED them with there own money. I sort of love that.
