My colleague, that has been dating her boyfriend for a few years now, complimented my ring over coffee the other day and it struck up a pretty lengthy conversation about wedding rings. The thing is, this happens to me all the time. I have a black diamond ring and it’s not that common but it’s also very striking. I’m sure a lot of people look at my ring and think it’s ugly because the black opacity of it doesn’t sparkle and on the other hand (pun intended) I also get compliments from strangers about it. But this isn’t to brag, this is to say that wedding rings are adored but they are also such a hot button topic.
This colleague of mine commented that she wants a ring that’s also unique and she finds herself looking at rings these days and being bored with many that she sees. I agreed with her but also said I honestly don’t have anything against a traditional diamond either: if I would have gotten one I would have been over the moon about it too! Let’s be real.
