With This Ring, I Thee Wed

Friday, February 03, 2012 Posted by Dina N

In July, my husband and I will be celebrating our 10th anniversary. I can't believe we've been married for a decade! When we got engaged, the task of choosing our wedding rings fell on me. Not that I was complaining: I've always loved jewelry, and choosing a piece I would be wearing every day was important.

There were so many beautiful wedding rings to choose from: gold rings, platinum rings, titanium rings, Should we get matching rings, or not? Should we go with white or yellow gold, or a mix of the two? Should we get the rings engraved? Classic, hammered, smooth, inlaid, stone set? My husband wanted a simple wedding band, preferably white. I made him look at ring after ring after ring. How about those stylish tungsten rings? I still love their simple elegance, their strength, and their understated style. Decisions, decisions...

At the end, we got matching white gold bands to represent our love and commitment to each other. These bands have stayed on our fingers for almost 10 years, and we plan to wear them for many more years to come.

    When I got married, yellow gold was the thing but I'm a silver jewelry kind of person so I don't know why I didn't go white gold.

    Congrats on your anniversary! 10 years is a LONG time. My husband and I have white gold rings. I picked my engagement ring and wedding band out myself. I love them! I get so many compliments on them. I have good taste, I guess. My mom lost her wedding ring recently. I don't understand how because you couldn't pry that thing off usually. Really weird. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

    Congrats on your upcoming 10 year anniversary! My hubby & I just had our 15th anniversary! Where does the time go?we have bought new rings since we first married but have both went back to our original rings. I guess it was just a sentimental thing. I do really want a new ring that I will love as much as my original but dont know if that will ever happen.

    Yay, congratulations on 10 years! My husband and I will be celebrating 7 years this year. Well, probably not celebrating since it is also our youngest's birthday. I "need" a new ring because mine is too small now for my finger. And it is bigger (wider) than I would like it to be but, he chose it so I can't complain :)
