I can remember the day when my husband proposed to me. I can remember the time and the place, but most of all; I remember the engagement ring when he showed it to me. Do you remember the moment? It was in a white box for holding rings. I knew he wanted to marry me, but I did not expect an engagement ring so soon. The ring is beautiful. I wonder how he went about choosing my engagement ring. Did he look at Whiteflash diamond jewelry, or in other places, or just he did buy it at the spur of the moment. Whatever he did, I am happy, even if we had to have it resized because I do have small delicate fingers.
During the same time that I was engaged, two of my other friends found their husbands. So all within a couple of months, we had all found our future spouses and we had lots of comparing to do. Not necessarily the private things we have with our spouses, but we did compare engagement rings. Though mine is a solitaire, two of my friends has a very nice 3 stone engagement rings. I would not trade with her for anything in the world, but I must admit, her ring is very nice. I wish we had taken a photo of the three of us showing off our rings. Maybe it would have made you all envious (joking of course).
Well when our wedding came, my husband chose very simple gold bands for us. He said he chose the band because it was a match for my engagement ring and he likes simple things. Other than a watch, it is the only piece of jewelry he wears. He picked it out, I did not accompany him to the jewelry store and once again, because of my small finger size (I have a 4.5 ring size) we had to have it resized. I would have liked to go with him to the jewelry store when he picked out our wedding bands, but I think he did a good job.
Engagement rings and wedding bands are meant to show our love to one another. I know my husband loves me. He does not have to tell me so, but he does constantly, by how he treats our kids and me. My engagement ring and wedding band are always with me, they are a sign of our love and devotion.
