A friend of mine emailed me the other day to ask when I was planning on ever showing people my engagement ring (sorry!). So here it is.
The ring was Tom's granny's passed down to his mum and from his mum to him for when the time was right. Apparently he did get it off his mum last year with preposing to me in mind and then gave it back her as I was being too mean to him, ha! Sounds about right, poor Tom ;)
Anyway Tom's granny had the tiniest fingers in the world so it only fit on my little finger. It's taken me a while to get it resized as it needs to go up so many sizes it basically needs a whole new shank in it. It's a lovely welsh gold which is pretty pricey though so I'm just getting 'regular' gold put in to make it bigger. We finally found a reasonable place in Clifton and it should be all done by this weekend so I can finally wear it! It's defo worth asking around as prices differed by £200 depending on the place we asked!
I've never really thought much upon what ring I would like as I never really considered ever getting married. I'm so glad that my ring is vintage and has been passed down through Tom's family. As soon as I saw it I knew it was perfect.
Although I never thought I was much a gold jewellery kinda person either I love that it is made from Welsh gold as it feels like showing part of my heritage too. It really is the perfect ring for me all round and I love the idea of it being passed down to one of our grandchildren one day!
Tom and I went wedding band shopping last week and have picked out our bands. I'm going for a super simple thin gold band as I want to stack it with my engagement ring and Tom's is a little more rustic. I'll show you a pic when we get them collected!
p.s you can read our engagement posts here and here and here.
p.p.s it's my bachelorette party this weekend!
