Still staring at my ring.

In the winter time, my fingers shrink a bit and I'm always afraid to lose my rings at work, so I don't wear them most of the time. Now that it's warm out I've started wearing my rings full time again. For some reason, I still cannot stop staring at my wedding ring. I've been married two years, I should be over this by now shouldn't I? I guess not. It's beautiful and I love looking at it. I figure my family will think I'm crazy for showing off my ring to them 2+ years into marriage, so I decided to share with you ladies instead. 


(Also, hello! I've not been around here for a while. Hope everyone's fairing well!)

    So unique! Thanks for sharing!

    I still look at mine all of the time, too :) I haven't worn them recently because of my hospital stays, so I get so excited when I can put them on!

    Sometimes I "play" with my ring by reflecting as much sunlight as I can through it. I have a moissanite, so it really fires. It's an awesome game.

    Very pretty! I still stare at my e-ring all the time, but I've only had it for 4 months. I have the same problem with my fingers fluctuating in size. Have you looked into adding sizing beads to your rings so you can wear them all the time?

    I haven't looked into that. My only real problem is at work, because I wear gloves and I'm afraid the rings will pull off when I pull the gloves off. If they were randomly falling off during the day I might look into that.

    Your rings are beautiful.

    After 35 years, I still love my ring. It's not huge or fancy - a simple 1/2 carat emerald cut, nearly flawless diamond, but when it catches the light, it sparkles. I have never considered trading up or adding enhancements.

    If your rings will fall off pulling gloves off, they're too loose. I had a glove (those tight latex-type) pull my ring partly off after getting engaged, and it was because my ring was a size and a half too big.

    Thankfully, my wedding rings have never fallen off when I pull off gloves. However, I did lose a different ring one time that probably was a bit too big for me. That's what made me fear losing my wedding band, and thus choose not to wear it to work depending on the weather.
