Day 22 - Hands

Day 22 is hands.
I decided to show you the hands on
my wedding ring.

We got married young {19!} 
and I decided I wanted a Claddagh ring.
So we had one custom made,
since they're not usually available
as real wedding rings. 
We special ordered a heart shaped diamond
and had it custom created just for me.
I love it. 

The hands symbolize friendship.
The heart symbolizes love.
The crown symbolizes loyalty. 

What a great symbol for marriage, no?

This past January, for our 7th anniversary,
Justin took it to be re-plated with white gold
{you're supposed to do that with white gold every
few years, I guess, and we'd never had it done.}
He surprised me by having the girl's birthstones
added to the sides of the crown. A tiny peridot
for Eisley and a tiny amethyst for Violet. 

Maybe someday there will be a third birthstone
up there at the top...?

  2. I love your wedding ring--so different. (I wish *I* had done something different.) What a sweetheart of a husband to surprise you with Eisley and Violet's birthstones!
