How do you feel about your wedding ring? Every time you look at it do you fall in love all over again? Is it something you'd be proud to pass on to a special daughter or daughter-in-law? Or, are you waiting for that perfect 10th or 20th anniversary when you'll finally be able to get the ring of your dreams?
For 12 years, I have been wearing a gold wedding ring. I love the style. But... for 39 years, I have hated gold jewelery. I have never purchased any gold jewelery in my life. So why I would choose a gold wedding ring. I will never know. And no, this isn't a picture of my ring. All of those who know me realized that the second you saw the tanned skin ;).
Then last week, I met Trevor of Goldsmith Co. Jewelers in Provo, UT (my temporary home town) and as I was explaining my predicament, he offered to clean and plate my ring in white gold for free.
I quickly called Troy to ensure he wouldn't have heart failure over my decision to change the ring that bound us forever (LOL!). He didn't seem to mind. I am now wearing the ring I was always supposed to have. (Note: Taking close-up images with your iPhone is not recommended as a great way to showcase your new, beautiful ring!)
The funny, yet not surprising part... when I came home and asked the hubster what he thought... all you women know exactly what his opinion was... he couldn't tell the difference between the before and after. Are you kidding me??? Men will be men!
But the jewelery fest doesn't end there... A couple of nights ago, I attended a Red Carpet event for about 30 UT bloggers with my new BFFs at Goldsmith Co. Jewelers. Some were friends I had hung with before... Others were new friends... Some were friends of friends...
And all were amazing... even my new friend, the Pandora bracelet... the hottest trend in charm bracelets. I'm dying to get one of these babies.
Eleven of the bloggers that attended the event are running giveaways on their blogs right now for the chance to win a $50 gift card to Goldsmith Co. Jewelers. You can enter all of their giveaways, but you may only win once. Also, you must either be able to claim your prize by Saturday, May 9 by visiting the Goldsmith Co. Jewelers store in Provo, UT or you must have a friend or family member that can claim it for you. The good news? You could use the money to put toward one of these amazing bracelets!
