Nocturnal Wenchy

African Hips Don't Lie

These gems have life in them: their colors speak, say what words fail of.

Noid’s mom asked me the other day if I alternate my engagement rings. At the time I thought it an odd question and then realized that Noid and I are odd, have done things in non-traditional ways and I am sure lots about us make no sense whatsoever! …. so her question was actually quite a valid one!

Not sure if Noid’s Mom reads my blog so ‘Hello Mother Mary!!!’ – if you reading this.”

Noid proposed beginning of August 2009 with a rock, as in a physical ROCK he picked up in the Drakensberg…All along I had a ring in my head, Noid suggested having one made, but didn’t like the designer LOL…. anyway – we just didn’t find it…, so eventually we found a ring in November 2009 that we both liked…. probably a week before our engagement party which was the same day as Thanksgiving. Yay! I loved the ring, Noid thought it was a bit much….as in over the top ha ha ha… “What about a diamond?”

Around May 2010 I walked past a jeweller and saw THE RING… you know the one I had in my head all the time that we couldn’t find? I loved it. I had to have it. Yes, it was considerably more pricey than the one I was wearing, and much to poor Noid’s thought, it was even more over the top (but so me!) and I just had to have it.

Please do NOT get me wrong. I am NOT saying my original ring was not good enough, or not expensive enough, or anything ‘enough’…. I am saying THIS was the ring of my dreams. *sigh* Noid very kindly had a look at it, mentioned how he will have to take a second job and how this one was even more over the top (read:  BIG) than my original engagement ring…. but he bought it for me ’cause he can love me.

So….. in my head I do not have two engagement rings. I wear only the square amethyst as my ‘official and only and much beloved engagement ring’ and the other as a dress ring occasionally.

When it came to choose a wedding band, Noid wanted to buy two encrusted diamond bands (one to go on each side)but I only wanted one… I have never just had a single wedding band before… so I have one encrusted diamond wedding band. 🙂

I admit, I love the ring. The engagement ring is a beautiful purple. It is loud and yes, over the top, it is unconventional and I get many comments on it… mostly that it suits who I am…. It is pretty and the exact setting I wanted. The wedding band is more emotional in I remember the words Noid said as he put it on exactly two months ago today… and it is beautiful and matches the engagement ring = PERFECTLY.

I truly love it. 🙂
