I don’t know if anyone noticed, but I stopped wearing my engagement ring. I just got annoyed by it. Even after they resized it and inserted bumps at the bottom, it would hang by the side of my finger. I took it off at work because it bothered me while I was typing. Sometimes I would accidentally leave it at work—not a good thing! So I just stopped wearing it.
Well I went to a jeweler who specializes in custom jewelry. He’s the same guy who replicated a rose gold band with diamonds that I’d found on the Neiman Marcus site. No problem, he said, and he did it for a third of the price on the site.
I went back to him last week and asked if he could reset my engagement ring in rose gold to match my wedding band. “Dahling, you know I’m not resetting your ring. I must redo the ring from scratch. Aye. You should have come to me to begin with.”
My engagement ring was out of the box from Derco Jewelers. They resized it and resized it until they could no longer do anything to it–at least that’s what they told me. It fits fine, they insisted. Any more resizing and it won’t fit your finger anymore.
Point is, there’s only so much you can do to resize a ring to my toddler-sized fingers. I needed a new one that was made to fit me. And now it does. Very happy. I ain’t taking this thing off.
Having trouble with my macro setting on my camera. Either that or I suck taking pictures. Anyhow, this is the best I could do.
