THE Ring

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.

 

(cognac diamond merged with black onyx surrounded by little diamond babies)
