Anniversary tradition

My honey is so wonderful. Not to brag, or anything. Or actually yes, to brag and very much. I don’t know how I found him but we’ve been together for 8 years now and married 3. It feels like no time at all. For a bangle crazy girl like myself (ahem see below)

…so despite the size of my bangle collection I wear just three rings. My engagement ring, my wedding band, and this special beautiful ring my honey designed.

Here is the original concept painting by Isabella at Hutten Jewelers

Flattened out it would look like the infinity symbol, or two rings intersecting. Our tradition is that each year he adds a stone, the little diamonds are for our years before marriage, the colored stones after marriage. With each year, and each gem add on, the two rings meld together more and more to become one. This year’s add is the oval shaped sapphire. It’s very special, and it tickles me to think of my football-loving gear-head husband caring about the design of a piece of jewelry. šŸ’—šŸ’˜šŸ’—

I mean, look at these kids!

  1. Congratulations + Happy Anniversary. That ring seems very “you” from what I’ve seen of your blog so far. I like it a lot & it’s delicate, unique, stylish, eye-catching and most of all meaningful.

    1. Thank you!! The ring is very special to me, and each year it gets better. The best part is every time I relay a compliment about the ring to my honey, he totally preens over it:) He’s so proud of himself and with good reason.
