100 Days & Counting

My google countdown claims our wedding is in 100 days! This seems significant somehow. I think it's because we're about to enter a countdown in double digits, when it has previously always been represented by three numerals. Another big day is approaching - our last dating anniversary before the wedding. We'll have been together for 2 years in precisely 2 weeks. It's been an exceptional two years, I must say. Here's to many more!

We ordered our wedding bands a few nights ago!

I love them in the photos, so we'll just have to see how well we fancy them in person. I really hope they work out. We don't exactly have back-up rings picked out. Mine will be 14ct white gold in the 3.1 mm width. I hope it's not too wide to look good next to my almost 2 mm engagement ring. I thiiiink it will work.


My engagement ring. Simple white gold 1/3 carat solitaire with a partial kite setting.

Here it is on my hot li'l hand. Click to enlarge.

Opie's is 14ct white gold at 6.2 mm wide, so exactly double the width of my ring. I love the delicate knotwork on my ring. I hope Opie is pleased with the chunkier equivalent on his larger ring.

Here are a few more angles of my ring:


We'll have to wait a few weeks to meet our rings in person. Le sigh. I want them nooooow.

Our rings are something for which I'm not going to fully divulge the amount spent, but I am proud of my internet haggling. I found a 15% off coupon on the site that already offered the lowest price for Opie's ring. Then I noticed that they also offer a "Best Price Guarantee." This means that since I found my ring for a lower price on another site, they'll sell it to me at 10% below the competitor's price with free shipping and a *gift from Ireland*. Oh boy! The percentage off and free shipping is grand, but I suspect I'll be amused by whatever cheesy something gets sent our way. I'll let you know if there's a leprechaun in the box whenever it arrives!
