On a daily basis, I wear four pieces of jewellery which comprises of three rings and a necklace – and unsurprisingly, they are all very precious to me and each have a very special story behind it.
The Commitment Ring
This ring comprises of four little diamonds (altogether 0.25 carats) in a curved white gold band. It was given to me by my now-Husband on the second day we officially became a couple. It’s a permanent fixture worn on my middle finger on my right hand. He bought it for me as a sign to show his commitment to me. You see, I had been hurt in my past relationships and when I met him, I was not interested in guys at all. I had been broken and I was sick of guys treating me like dirt. But he assured me that he was for real; that he was The One I had been dreaming of all my life. We met on 31st October 2009 and we officially became a couple on 27th November 2009 and 2 days later, I got this ring.
The Bunny Necklace
I always, always get compliments for this cute bunny necklace. It is just adorable! Because I’m Chinese, people wonder if I was born in the year of the Rabbit, but no, it’s not that at all. I was born in the Monkey year. Instead, it’s because the Hubby calls me “Bunny” as a nickname. Yes, I give you permission to vomit!! LOL. It’s my first Christmas present from him.
The Engagement Ring
Less than 5 months of dating, he popped the question. How could I refuse this beautiful 0.5 carat diamond bling? He chose this himself so he done very well indeed. After years of browsing online*, I knew that I wanted a round diamond so I was very upfront about it when he hinted at what designs I liked. How did he propose? Read all about it here.
Of course, I know it’s not the BIGGEST and best quality diamond out there, but do I care? No! To tell you the truth, I was engaged before and I had the most beautiful top quality diamond at a huge 1 carat with a platinum band – the ring was stunning, but my ex-fiancé was a total jerk and didn’t know how to treat me right. Back then, I was stupid and wanted to settle for Mr Right Now, but it’s not worth it, I tell you. If there are any single ladies reading this and struggling with finding The One – stop looking! He will find you!
P.S. I still have my old engagement ring…I should sell it and buy myself a Chanel handbag or something!! LOL!
The Wedding Ring
180 days after our initial meeting, we got married. And all I got was this stunning diamond wedding ring which boasts 64 diamonds which encircles my finger. I don’t understand women who don’t want to get married… Hello? You get to wear diamonds every day!!! And a wedding ring stops random guys from hitting on you. At least, that is my excuse for not attracting attention from the opposite sex these days. Of course, it has nothing to do with the fact that I look like a frumpy housewife!
