Something old, something blue

It's been a while since I've thought about engagement rings, but I can remember spending a lot of time on the Fay Cullen website browsing their selection of vintage, antique, and estate rings. I even seem to remember bookmarking it on Gabe's computer at one point in time! I have no shame. You see, before being engaged I never thought much about the style of ring I would want, but what I did know was that I wanted it to have a history. Engagement rings have changed so dramatically in size, shape, and materials over the years that they are truly a reflection of the style and fashion of their period.

I now wear my grandmother's diamond proudly, although in a new setting. It is so special to me to know that I carry a daily reminder of a long and happy marriage and of a simpler time when strangers would have never thought to ask you, "how many carats is that?".

Oh I just adore that last Sapphire wrapped ring!

I am drooling on my laptop... oh, if I only had six more left hands so that I could wear these rings on each of them!
