I'm really not into the old 'pile as many diamonds as I can onto my left hand' approach to engagement and wedding rings. Aside from the dubious ethics involved in buying diamonds, it's just a bit, well, boring.
Any of these rings from Sundance Catalog would make gorgeous alternatives for couples looking for something more unusual....
Around The Pearl
Storm at Sea
Courage and Hope
(because I love the name!)
Then I decided that I wanted a plain white band, but super thin. But it turns out that unless you hammer them, à la Wafer Thin (above) they bend. I don't like hammered metal and I don't want my wedding ring to bend.
So I'm stuck. Going quickly mad in a world of sparkly stones and precious metals.....
