Can you see what I'm sportin' in this photo?
|It's back on my finger and oh, so beautiful!!|
Yep! It's my 20th Anniversary Ring!
I'm wearing it a bit early, as our 20th anniversary isn't until Mid-September, but I just couldn't resist!
So, here it is.
All shiny and beautiful with a super awesome
I couldn't be happier!
In the post where I mentioned getting my ring and how I sent it back because the diamond was brown (a very beautiful brown, too!!) instead of black, I told you how wonderful the folks over at Todd Reed in Boulder, CO were and how their customer service was just top notch.
Well, that's so true.
You can read that post - HERE - and also see the photos they sent me of my ring being created. It was super sweet of them to send the photos and what a cool memento for me to keep with my certificate of authenticity!
Oh, and speaking of their exceptional customer service, check out the fabulous ceramic bird they included in the package with my ring. Isn't she beautiful?
It's from a local Boulder artist named Caroline Douglas.
Her work is just lovely!!
They told me they send each of their customers a piece of art from a local artist.
How cool is that?!!
Yep - the folks over at Todd Reed really know how to impress.
I told you I would share the little drawing I sent them showing how I wanted my custom ring created.
Yep. They did an amazing job!
From that scary little sketch of mine to this fabulous ring.
Now that's what I call 'vision'.
I love my ring.
It goes with everything, is probably the most comfortable ring I've ever had, fits perfectly and is so pretty I can't stop staring at it!
As you can see, it's perfectly 'me'.
Except, several of my friends were shocked that I didn't get a ring with a pearl in it.
So, let me explain. Since this is a ring I will be wearing all the time and rarely, if ever, take off, then I couldn't have a pearl because I shouldn't be showering, doing dishes, cleaning my house, playing in the pool or ocean and all that kind of stuff with a pearl ring on. I don't have the discipline to take it off for all those things, nor the memory to put it back on each time and all that water and those possible chemicals are not good for a pearl's delicate and oh so beautiful nacre.
It would dull the luster, and we can't have any of that!
So I guess that means I'll just have to get a Todd Reed pearl creation next,...you know something to wear only on special occasions, like lounging around the house while watching zombie movies, decked out in my comfy clothes. With my hands nowhere near water or chemicals.
Unless of course, a glass of wine would count as a chemical! LOL!!
I want to give a special "Thank You" to all the folks over at Todd Reed for their exceptional customer service and their awesome design and fabrication skills - you guys ROCK!!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Raw Happiness!
Oh, and Michael, you did good honey!
It's exactly what I wanted for our 20th!!
