My new ring

(26 Posts)

DH took me out for a meal tonight and bought me an Eternity ring for our anniversary on Tuesday. (2nd anniversary)

This sounds ungrateful and I dont mean it too but the Eternity ring is white gold at the front and my others are a mix so (I think it is where I am trying to get used to it ) not sure wether they go.. I am sure I will get used to it in time.

bless him. you are indeed a lucky lady

I think its lovely. Good on your dh.

Lonelymum Sat 13-Aug-05 21:39:31

Not sure whether it matches the others either, but it is lovely. What do you have to do to get an eternity ring?

When I asked dh for some jewellery over 20 years ago he replied that putting jewellery on me was like putting make-up on a gargoyle!!!!

Hellsbells, wherever I go tonight, you are there with a terrible tale to tell. Do you want to discuss it baby?

luckylady Sat 13-Aug-05 21:44:57

DH is a sucker for stories in tradition, s I just told him that you get an eternity ring for your 1st wedding anniversary or first baby. Both were last year, but we were a bit skint, so he got me it for now... oh and to shut me up .

I think with time the white gold will fade a little like the white gold band on the wedding ring then it should match better, but at the mo because it is new and shiny it looks a bit odd.

i think it looks lovely too I suppose you could always wear it on your other hand if it bugged you that much?

luckylady Sat 13-Aug-05 21:45:37

hellsbells4 -can't believe your dh said that

Lonelymum Sat 13-Aug-05 21:46:20

I love the way it bends to fit the shape of your engagement ring. I am long past my 1st wedding anniversary and we have 4 children. I wonder what other excuse I could come up with?

luckylady Sat 13-Aug-05 21:47:17

he even let me drink tonight ( I normally do the driving). Think he was planning on getting lucky.... but he has gone to bed and I am on here at me .. I may wake him up nicley!!

luckylady Sat 13-Aug-05 21:48:35

LM- You could just play the I WANT ONE card....

hellsbells4 Sat 13-Aug-05 21:48:42

At the time I just guffawed with laughter - but it kinda hurt too. Now read my 'itchy bits' thread - and tell me if I've got a marriage worth working at - cos I really really don't know at the moment.

Lonelymum Sat 13-Aug-05 21:52:09

It was your itchy bits thread that I was referring to.

mishmash Sat 13-Aug-05 21:55:48

Lucky lady - just a little advice - you shouldn't put different golds or different weights of gold together - they wear each other down - this has happened to me

You should put White with White
9ct with 9ct
18ct with 18ct

etc... don't mix

luckylady Sat 13-Aug-05 21:58:09

where is your itchy bits thread hellsbells

Lonelymum Sat 13-Aug-05 21:59:41

Mishmash, that is true, but my wedding ring (24 carat gold on outside edge) is next to my engagement ring (18 carat gold) and has been for 11 years and there is no obvious sign of wearing yet.

luckylady Sat 13-Aug-05 22:00:06

mishmash-I thought that but when I asked the jewelers they said it didn't matter..

Both my engagement ring and wedding ring have whitegoled and yello gold on them anyway. buit they are both 9ct and my eternity ring is 18ct.. tbh honest I don't think they sell 9ct out here.. haven' t seen any.

Lonelymum Sat 13-Aug-05 22:00:28

Itchy bits threaed is under health. I know this is a hijack, but do help the poor woman if you feel you can.

hellsbells4 Sat 13-Aug-05 22:00:29

Sorry LM - thought it was the 'gargoyle' bit!! Both are kind of funny - kind of sad stories! But I think I've run out of laughs now.

luckylady Sat 13-Aug-05 22:00:59

LM- 24ct.. wow, that is high..

luckylady Sat 13-Aug-05 22:01:40

highkack all you want if we can help some one out I am on my way over there now.

luckylady Sat 13-Aug-05 22:01:56

ment highjack.....

Lonelymum Sat 13-Aug-05 22:02:38

Luckylady - yeah well, dh and I valued each other in those far off days!!
