Let's Talk: What's The Story of Your Ring?

On Monday we read a bit of Phyllis's remarkable love story but I'd dare to say that most women carry a story on their left hand that brings a light to their eyes. 

If you meet with a widows group, tell your ring stories next time you meet! You'll be surprised at the sweet, funny  and heart-warming tales you hear. Or write down your ring's story (and perhaps value) for your family or heirs.

If you've had your ring re-fashioned, we'll talk about that later this month and I'd love to see photos. We did this a few years ago and it was a very popular topic, along with "Should I keep wearing my wedding ring? When is the right time to take it off?" 

But for today, what is the story of your ring? Do you still wear it? What does it "say" when you look at it? Please leave a comment below if you'd like to share your thoughts, or email me at today. thanks!

  1. My ring Story
    We didn't have any extra money for rings when we got married. A friend had extra gold bands so we borrowed those for the ceremony. Later we purchased a silver band for me at a J C Penneys.I had never wanted a diamond so that was fine with me. When reaching out for a railing while thinking I was falling, the band was notched with a memory of that fall. I wore it anyway. Years later at a picnic my ring was lost in the grass. I went back for days and searched but it was never found. Five children and 42 years later, he surprised me a wedding band studded with diamonds. Beautiful. He died nine months later. I wore the band for almost a year then transferred it to my right hand. Now, after 10 years, I can only wear the ring on special occasions. If I wear it everyday, I get an allergic reaction. I think when we no longer have to wear masks, I will put it on a chain and wear it that way. It will always be special to me.

  2. I love the story of your rings! Thank you so much for sharing it! I'm so sorry your first ring was lost at a picnic. I would have been right there with you going back to look for it. And I think wearing your diamond studded band on a chain will be so pretty and a good way to continue to cherish the special symbol of your love. Many blessings, and thanks again for telling your sweet story. :)

  3. I had my husband's matching wedding ring sized down to fit my ring finger and they were able to use the extra gold from his ring to fuse the promise ring he gave me when we first started dating along with my engagement ring and both of our wedding rings into one ring. I still wear it to this day. May 30th will be 5 years since he went home to God, for me it is now a beautiful reminder that I will see him again in Heaven one day.
