Like many little girls, I grew up with fairy tale princess stories, which led me into believing the idea of that prince who would slay the evil dragon for me, and we would live happily ever after. Well, as I came of age, I realized dragon slaying princes only exist in fairy tales Despite this realization, like many of my follow sisters, I still dream of that grand proposal, engagement ring of my dream, and the wedding of a life time. In the last few years, I had a change of heart on the meaning of life, wedding, family. As a responsible grown-up, I have a more realistic view about the wedding and the life after. I am lucky; I see pretty good examples around me. I see firsthand what it means to be a wife, mother and a modern day woman. As result I also had a slight change of heart about that grand engagement ring and the wedding ring that I never really considered in the past.
Until a few years ago I was all about the engagement ring. Gal pals and I would have discussions about size, cut, and clarity. I gathered more information about diamond than I really ought to for my own piece of mind. However I noticed many gals including many close friends and family members do not regularly wear their engagement rings. According to these gals, their role as a mother/wife who regularly performs housework and taking care of children, it is not most practical. To them, it is a hassle to put on and take off that diamond ring constantly. A gal pal has lost her ring as result. She was sad because it was a big diamond. Instead, they all wear their wedding bands everyday and wearing the diamond engagement ring only on occasions. This makes me take a seriously look at the wedding band from a more practical perspective. A few gal pals recently got themselves new diamond wedding bands to wear everyday in place of their diamond engagement rings. This way, they each can have a little sparkle or a lot and still be practical to their lifestyles. The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of a really nice wedding ring.
But, the practical me can see myself wearing the wedding ring everyday and the engagement ring on occasions. I am in adoration with this ring from the Selini Bespoke Wedding Rings Collection. I can see myself wearing this as a everyday ring, not just as a wedding ring. What about you, do you wear engagement ring everyday with your wedding band or are you the wedding band only sort of gal?
