I absolutely loved the 1920’s ring, and the 2010 ring!
Margarita Kulyapina (10 days ago)
I think I would like my ring to have jade instead... not only is it in a colour I like, but my grandmother insists that jade is auspicious for me, so I guess that's an added boost of confidence, even if I don't necessarily have as strong of a belief in this as she does. Bonus if the ring itself is silver, since that is antibacterial and doesn't really rust.

I liked 1910s best. Always thought I wanted something simple like that. Last July, I was proposed to by my fiancé and he got me 2 rings! 1 because it has 'swirlies', my favourite thing in the world, bit is very impractical, and 1 simpler one to wear. Both are made of wood and turquoise resin (Which is genius, because we never quite found out what metals I am and am not allergic to)! The one for wearing also has a glow in the dark epoxy where the resin and wood attach to reach other! All these elements have something to do with our story. They may be unconventional materials, but it's completely personal and fitting for us! (The swirly ring I wear as a necklace btw ^^)
My god wow i choose 1970 no 1920 Nonono EHHHMMM

Si Su (19 days ago)
My grandparents got married in 1963 and my Grandma had no Ring. They had Not that much money at that time, their Family even helped them out for the Wedding Rings, so they could get married. And they really had to, because at this time, my mum was already "on the way" and an unmarried couple With a child..... Not These days. Shortly, before my grandpa died in 1981, He bought a Ring, With a blue stone, like my Grandmas eyes. And 2 days, before He passed away because of cancer, He asked my Grandma, if she would marry him again, when they meet again in heaven. And she said yes. Today, my Grandma still wears the Ring, to remember him.
