Rings!!

So, when I was up in Portland I put in the order for our weddings bands. Yay . . . the official representation of our wedding!!! We have been looking around for awhile, but we fell in love with some that we saw at Alchemy when we got stuck in Portland back in November. This is what they look like:
M's is going to look basically exactly like this . . . mine is going to look the same, just a lot skinnier. The reason it is going to be so skinny is because I have my grandmothers wedding band that I am going to be using as well, and it is super skinny. And if I am going to be wearing three rings I would rather not have them fill up my entire finger!! Alchemy is actually doing some restoration on my grandmothers ring as well. It needs to be resized, because my grandma was a size 4.5!?!?! Can you believe that?? That is tiny! I wear a 6.5, so they are going to add a few diamonds to help fill in the space (it is an eternity band). Plus, they are going to do retipping, so that everything stays in securely. Here is a picture of the ring now, I think it is going to look a lot better after the restoration.The guys who work there are so nice and so helpful! They were just genuinely excited to work on my grandmas ring as well. I am so excited to get to see everything!!

I like those hammered bands! My husband actually chose a hammered band with a matte finish and he loves it!
