Ring Bling.

Aug 1, 2011

Today is a happy day. It's August first which means July is officially over and I'm that much closer to Aaron coming back to Utah and our fabulous wedding I'v been planning. I know I talk about the wedding a lot but let me tell you, when your fiancé lives in a different country and you never get to see him and you hardly get to talk to him you find the things that make you happy and you focus on them. The wedding isn't the only thing that makes me happy, I also focus on the life we will have together and many other things but they're all way too personal to share with people on a blog. So the blog gets to hear about the wedding. Today I have some exciting news. Yesterday Aaron told me I can share one picture of the wedding ring we picked out together when he was here. He said on Facebook but my blog is way more fun so people have to come here to see it. Plus there's a little story behind it so I want to share it.

I am not a boring person. I am my own person and I like who I am. When Aaron and I first started looking at wedding rings I just couldn't find a single thing I liked. Every diamond ring I saw was pretty, but not for me. And after a while they all sort of blend together. One day I stumbled upon colored stones as an option and I loved the idea. So when Aaron was here visiting we went to the Shane Company because I knew they had a large stock of different colored stones at the store instead of online only. They had every color I could have wanted. We picked out a band first and then we tried reds, blues, greens, pinks and yellows but so far none of them had been the thing we thought we were looking for. The man helping us was so patient. He said to us "I have something in the back that I've never showed to anyone before but I think you two might really like it." He disappeared and when he returned he pulled out the most beautiful orange sapphire stone we'd ever seen. He set in in the band and Aaron and I were both a little speechless. I knew it was what I wanted and from the look on my face he knew too! I'd never imagined wanting an orange sapphire but as soon as I saw it on my finger I was done. The light catches it from any angle and the stone just sparkles and shines. It's absolutely gorgeous. This picture doesn't do it justice but for now it's the best I have! Enjoy!


  1. Suey! I love it! It's very YOU!!! YAY for finding the perfect ring!

  2. Um... this is perfect and you're awesome for not being generic! I have a colored stone too and it's my favorite thing ever.

  3. Congratulations on your engagement, and for your fiancé coming home soon! Thank you so much for stopping by the store. We're ecstatic that you were able to find the right ring for you!

  4. Omgoodness this is so weird. So, when Daniel proposed I had just graduated college and was doing the whole Americorps thing and he had just joined the Army aka we had no money and didn't want to go wildly in debt for a ring. So, I got a lovely little starter ring and we are saving up for my dream ring which is a yellow sapphire ring from Shane Co! lol Obviously, we have excellent taste! I looove your ring.
