Hehe- as requested from Marley- here are the long awaited pictures of the anniversary ring Andrew picked out for me.
It's a 1 carat peridot with diamonds around it.
The peridot was believed to be a stone of springtime by ancients who considered it a gift from Mother Nature. Napoleon once made a gift of peridot to Josephine as a symbol of undying love and admiration. Peridot is a protector against negative emotions. What is the meaning of your favorite gemstone?
Apparently this is the, "I'm gonna punch you" pose... It's really hard and kinda awkward to take a picture of your own hand!
I too- want you to take pictures of your favorite ring and post it here- and tell me if I'm just challenged at taking pictures of my own hand.
Andrew and I decided the night of our anniversary that we definitely need to take pictures of our wedding rings on corks- we even talked about custom corks. So we spent a lot of the evening trying to balance the ring on a cork. LOL.
The classic shot. I have really long skinny fingers.
