I’ve been married for almost 31 years and was engaged for about a year before that so I’ve been wearing a ring on my left hand for quite some time. I love my wedding ring because when I first saw it, it looked like a castle with the smaller stones leading up the path to the big one in the middle.
In all these years I have never taken them off for any length of time, not even when I had major surgery. I made the nurses put tape around my finger.
Around the time of our 10th anniversary I got an anniversary band to wear as well. It made a pretty bit of bling on my hand when the light hit it just right.
It felt naked though, so I put another ring on it for now.
I don’t know what I am going to do about my wedding ring. Perhaps the jeweler can bend them back into shape? Perhaps after 30 years it’s time for an upgrade? We’ll see. For now, it’s a just a mystery.
