It's Time for an Anniversary Ring!
You met your wife in college, a
busy time of studying, socializing and waking up to the reality
of paying for the things your parents once paid for. On the
dating end, you wanted to finalize your commitment to your future
wife with a marriage
proposal. The only problem is, you didn't have much financial funds
then to pay for an engagement ring. So, you and
your new fiancée settled on the idea that you
would purchase a simple ring, nothing too fancy, or debt
threatening, with the intent to buy her a better ring
when you were financially able.
Ten years and a few
kids later, you have finally reached
Upon your milestone anniversary, you have decided
on a fitting gift that will fulfill your 10-year old promise. This
year you will finally give her an anniversary ring. But this
is not just any ordinary ring. With an anniversary ring, you are
complimenting the existing wedding band that your wife has worn for
many years. It symbolizes
commitment to your spouse, a partnership that has endured many trials,
and a promising future of many years to come. Those
aspects in marriage will make this anniversary ring a
symbolic reflection of your unyielding commitment to each other. Accommodated
with the new anniversary band, your wedding ring will now
radiate with that extra sparkle.
What type of ring?
A typical "wedding ring" is that of an
engagement ring, joined with a wedding band to complete the
"wedding ring" set. Some women prefer that an engagement ring would
settle in as the "wedding ring," upon a bride's
wedding day. This could be as
of simplicity's sake for appearance or just
to reduce costs. Other women like to keep with the tradition and
be presented with an additional wedding band to accommodate her engagement
ring on her wedding day. With an anniversary ring, you can accommodate
both situations. Should a wife have an engagement ring only as
her wedding ring, you
can finally give her that anniversary ring to join her wedding
ring. If she already has both bands, then she could
wear her anniversary ring on another hand. As the
famous saying goes, "the more the merrier." Prices in anniversary
rings vary between the low hundreds to the thousands, depending
on design and the style.
Hopefully you can
give your spouse whatever they desire! Most importantly, the
price of an anniversary should be insignificant. It is the
thought and consideration of this milestone gift that will make
it most special of all.
