All About My Wedding Rings

I have gotten more than a million questions about my wedding rings over the last four and a half years. It all started when I got engaged, my rose gold morganite ring was a definite hot topic! Everyone was raving about how different and unique it was, that it was a very "Juliana" ring, what a great job Rudy did on picking it out, and I was just so in love with it. Rings are such a fun accessory especially wedding rings. I think the way we view wedding rings has changed significantly. They now range from a delicate and simple style to some of the most extravagant pieces. I believe they should make a statement, big or small, along with representing the owner's taste and style. I've thought about sharing a post entirely about my wedding rings for a while now. In December, a third ring was added to my wedding stack and I considered this to be the best time to introduce you to my rings. I'm a bit nervous about going in detail in regard to these rings that are clearly very meaningful to me, yet I think it would be fun to also share the story behind each of them.

Brace yourselves, this may be a lengthy post.

My taste in jewelry was the total opposite before I met Rudy. It shifted from white gold to gold, specifically rose gold. While getting lost in the neverending world of Pinterest I stumbled across a photo of the most beautiful ring which was titled "peach engagement ring". It was a rose gold ring with diamonds all-around a light pink center stone. From the lighting, it definitely gave off peachy hues and I was all for that. I immediately fell in love with the ring. Eventually, I shared photos of a rose gold morganite rings with Rudy and told him this was the style of engagement ring I'd like. I always made sure to tell him at the end of the day he gets to choose the ring he preferred for me. It didn't have to be identical, preferably rose gold with morganite stone, and we left it at that. On the right is a photo of the ring I first fell in love with and sent to Rudy. Funny thing he kept it saved for reference until the day he went ring shopping.

When the day came and Rudy started looking at rings he said he went to a couple of different jewelers before finding the one. None of the places carried morganites and the last jewelers he stopped at, Zales, was the one that had an entire collection of morganite rings. Rudy told me he had planned on purchasing a round stone similar to the photos I had shown him, but a few days prior the store had sold the last circled stone. He mentioned they had one circle stone on display but it was too small for his liking. He then saw my ring and said he immediately knew it was the one. He absolutely loved it, a cushion-cut pale pink morganite center stone, bordered with a frame of round diamonds that also lined the ring's leg, crafted in 10K rose gold. Did you know that the morganite is considered to be the gemstone of the heart? How fitting that it ended up being the stone I wanted on my engagement ring. I think Rudy made the best decision when picking out my ring since I'm still head over heels in love with it. Till this very day, I still catch myself staring at it with the most admiration.

When Rudy and I eloped we didn't have any rings for the day. We used my engagement ring and the ring I had bought Rudy a few years prior. After we got married I finally decided to look into getting a custom ring on Etsy since I wasn't having any luck elsewhere. So many people told me not to buy a wedding ring from Etsy, in case they weren't real. However, if you do your research you can find some legit pieces. I searched for a custom curved wedding band and found a shop called Szeki Studio. I reached out to the shop and began messaging back and forth with the owner. He was awesome! He knew exactly what he was doing and was always so informative when helping me design my band. I told him about my engagement ring sent him the complete measurements so that he could get started on a visual for me. Szeki was always offering me his professional advice and he was very quick in responding to my messages.

After seeing the first visual I was so thrilled. Originally I wanted it to hug my cushion cut perfectly however, I then realized I wanted something different. I decided I wanted a more rounded curve versus the original square. I let Szeki know of my thoughts and he began drawing up a design so that I could see which I preferred. Once he presented me with the newest design of the band I knew that was the wedding band I always wanted and I couldn't wait to wear it on my finger. I purchased the 14K rose gold curved diamond ring.
One thing I really appreciated about Szeki's Studio was that they offer a payment plan for their customers. As soon as I completed my payments, he quickly started creating my ring. Once he started creating my ring it only took a few weeks for me to receive it in the mail! He worked super quick and I was so in love with it. In the end, I was very happy that I decided to go with the curved band over the square version. The ring looked perfect next to my engagement ring I couldn't have asked for it any other way. It fit like a glove and finally, my wedding ring set was complete, so I thought.

For a couple of years now I have been loving the look of stacked rings from different sizes and designs. I had my eye on a few rings, and after nearly a year of trying to convince Rudy to get me one, haha, he surprised me with a brand new ring on Christmas. I finally added a third ring to my wedding stack! I have been a huge fan of a jewelry brand called Made by Mary, which I'm sure I've talked about them on my blog before. I own quite a few of her jewelry from necklaces and rings. I absolutely love every single piece and I still want more! I fell in love with the Poppy stacking ring from their Save The Bees Collection and would always daydream about how it would look added to my wedding rings. Rudy gifted me the Poppy ring in rose gold and it's just so stunning. It fit in perfectly with my other rings I couldn't love it any more than I already do. I admire the look of my stacked rings and think it's now complete. The Poppy ring fit in so well and love how simple its design is compared to my other rings.
I can see myself switching out my rings in the future. Wearing one band once in a while or both. I would even like to possibly get another band that I can switch around with some more. I love the endless possibilities of having multiple wedding rings to play with. What are your thoughts on stacking wedding rings? Are you for them or are they too much? Thank you very much for taking the time to join me in today's post.
