see my pretty lil engagement ring? One Love Photo
However, I've been told this choice was ridiculous...and I clearly NEED to have both an engagement and a wedding ring. When people say things like that, and express real concern about something so trivial all I can do is laugh. It's the 21st century people! We make our own rules about these things now.
As much as I adore my ring of tiny diamonds, I think if I had to do it again, I would perhaps insist on just a simple band. More and more, I'm spotting simple wedding bands on women my age. I love that look. I'm literally enamored with the simplicity of it all. I'm sure that "the bigger the better" mentality is still the norm for many, but it's never been my thing. Plus, with a hard hitting recession and a mountain of student debt staring me in the eyeballs, wearing a fortune on one finger seems superfluous. Ehh, that's what I think.
The ring Tommy selected for his own wedding ring is simple and stylish. He picked out a radical titanium ring and we were both surprised with their affordability. It was perfect for what he wanted.
