finally got engaged!!! almost three years after getting married but psh! whatever!... it takes time to find the perfect ring (and... um, money) and this was it. i've never been a fan of the "engagement ring" persay. i never really got the appeal of diamonds... how can something so precious represent marriage? it seems false to me to offer a token to symbolize what isn't so. marriage isn't flawless and love is far from perfectly crafted... it's a combination of beauty and extreme hardship: a balance of darkness and light, truth and secrets, pleasure and pain.
this ring i thought, beyond its beauty captures what it REALLY means to get married... to make a commitment to another person while staying true to yourself.
