how very odd it is...

 to find one's self being served by one's own self!
What I am meaning is, as my job is to make and sell wedding rings, it is kind of weird to be choosing a ring myself!  Now I know how difficult it is, I may be more sympathetic to those who take time to choose!

I am really stuck, whether a white metal like white gold, platinum or palladium, or yellow gold.
I want to be modern and nontraditional and go for white gold, BUT yellow gold suits me better theres no denying it. I have very pale digits and white gold looks too hard on me. Oh hum!

I was thinking to go for a heart shape signet ring, but now I am liking the floral carved ring more and more!
I just don't know and soon we will be running out of time as usual, oh good grief, I just can't decide : (

the middle one here, used to be my favourite! But now maybe my mood just changes alot because I see wedding rings everyday.
Anyhow, other wedding stuff is all going to plan surprisingly! We now have some transportation between the two venues and even talking to my Mum about a cake! so not too bad all things considered.
We are off to the Isle of Wight tomorrow for the weekend, hope i can get to a beach between the football matches? I'll keep you posted!

  1. My wedding ring is a basic silver band. Husband and I have the same one, both of us are allergic to gold, and platinum wasn't in our price range when we got married(both of us were students). We talked about getting fancier ones in the future, but we have both realised we like the ones we have for their simplicity!

    The most important thing is to choose something you will love for the rest of your life!

  3. I think that the first choice you make is always the best, because it's the one you make following your instict, without thinking to much, second and third thoughts bring confusion...but this is just my humble opinion.
    Yours it's a tough choice though, because they are all really nice!

  6. I'm with nath here, we went for simple too but we'd only just left Uni too so we didn't have a great deal of money to spend on rings. I'm sure you'll choose a beautiful one.

  7. The floral one would look lovely on you. It seems more vintage like, which is what you love. Just my little opinion.
    It must very difficult to choose considering you can make whatever style you like.
    I'm loving hearing all about your wedding plans.
    All the best to you both. x

  9. My engagement ring is Edwardian jade handcarved into two tiny birds, set with two diamonds on white gold. I knew he was the right guy for me because the ring is perfect and he chose it himself!

    I like the heart-shaped signet in yellow gold - but if you change your mind you can always find excuses for new rings... first anniversay, second honeymoon, eternity ring, first baby... you could have one on each finger at this rate!
