I overheard a group of ladies discussing their engagement rings and wedding bands. The baubles were impressive, quite large and expensive. They were talking designers, clarity and the cost of their massive rocks. This got me thinking of my own wedding set.
It isn’t anything I would have chosen. My rock resembles more of a pebble, weighing in at a modest quarter of a carat. Much like its owner, I’m sure the diamond is flawed. It’s also round in shape, which wouldn’t be my first choice. It does have three tiny accent diamonds along the main stone, making the band a bit more elaborate. The matching wedding band is plain save for another three small diamonds, but when locked together, the set is very nice, albeit small.
Although I have never cared much for the set, it is priceless. My beloved husband was 19 years old, in college, and working in a grocery store at the time the set was purchased. He sold some of his belongings to help pay for my ring. It was the best he could afford at the time, bought from a store not specializing in jewelry, and it was a complete surprise to me when he proposed. I would never consider upgrading or replacing the set, as you just can’t put a price tag on the wonderful love story my rings tell. ♥♥♥
