my ring

M and Ale over at On The Same Page blog did a feature about unique love rings from around the world. M (who you may have been hearing about for years on my blog as Kaiya) asked me for a photo of my engagement ring and a little blurb about it. There are some seriously gorgeous pieces in that post.

"My father-in-law's grandfather had this ring made for his future wife sometime around 1919 or 1920 in Germany, before they left to come to the United States. When my husband had it appraised, the jeweler said everything about this ring is hand-crafted from the cuts on the stone itself to the delicate filigree work in the setting and down the side. It was saved for the wife of my husband (the only boy of four). The diamond has a flaw in it, but it's part of his family history and I wouldn't want any other ring."
