My Engagement Ring Arrived!

It's a sad story sort of, my original ring decided it wasn't going to stand up to a lifetime of being worn every day. It was silver and onyx, and unfortunately after 2 months, the band had bent, and because the ring was a bit too big, it fell off, hit the ground, and a shard of onyx came off. Bwaah. I hadn't really planned on wearing it beyond the wedding day anyway, but I kept being told that the engagement ring is supposed to be worn forever along with the wedding ring. So.

 Anyway, Mr Owl replaced it with a very beautiful ring I had spotted online. It arrived in the post yesterday from Germany, along with a handwritten, very sweet, very apologetic postcard from the jeweller to apologise for the "huge wait". She said she's been overwhelmed with orders and has even had to hire a helper. I'm not surprised! Her stuff is lovely.

So it finally came and OMG IT IS SO FUCKING PRETTY. It's silver with black spinel, a very hard stone that will certainly never shatter. A little silver skull sits on either side of the stone. I'm so grossly happy with it. It was made specially for me by Kipkalinka Jewels.

  1. Now that’s the engagement ring you can wear, even after the wedding as an accessory for events and such. It’s really pretty, and I find it really sweet that you fiancĂ© had it personally made for you. When is the big day, by the way?

  2. Your engagement ring is bound to get attention wherever you go! The color and the design is quite unique, and it’s good that it is very sturdy, unlike the first one that you had. Do you have any other unique pieces of jewelry that you would like to share with us on your next posts? Cheers!
