Katie is a very particular girl. She likes her vegetables prepared a particular way, chooses old movies she’s watched tens of times over new ones and has a favorite pair of pants that I’m fairly sure she’d wear every day if she could (the green Old Navy ones).
When I first thought about buying her a ring, I had a few criteria. One, it couldn’t have a huge, protruding stone because, well, she’s accident prone and I didn’t want to contribute to that. Two, I didn’t want to buy the biggest, most expensive ring that my credit would allow, as I really, really didn’t want to enter into a marriage more in debt than I was before. And I needed a ring that reflected her personality: understated, but really shiny when it wants to be.
I looked at jewelry stores, pawn shops and even Craigslist in search of something that fit. Nothing seemed to. Everything either had a protruding stone or was far too loud for her, but after nearly six weeks of searching, I found the perfect ring.
We both love it.
