I often find myself conflicted about wedding rings. On one hand, I feel like they are kind of tacky. I don’t want one of my own one day because I constantly lose things that are important, and I feel like people believe that their rings symbolize their relationships. If you lose your wedding ring does that mean you don’t care about your relationship? On the other, there is definitely something romantic about having a symbol of your relationship on your finger to ward off skanky old men at the bar, and attract sexy young home-wreckers.
This particular ring is interesting to me, because the silver on top rubs off over time, revealing the 18 kt gold underneath. The idea is that the longer the love lasts, the better it gets. This hasn’t been the case with me so far. In fact, the longer my loves last the more paranoid and bitchy they seem to get. However, I am a firm believer in optimism. When I meet the guy I am meant to be with, maybe it will get better as time passes. What better way to celebrate that, than with a ring that does the same thing?[ via ]
