Out with the old in with the new

I simply adore my wedding ring, like love love love it. Its vintage, its super detailed and in my opinion completely stunning. Yet its a bit of a baby problem...you see, the intricacy of it is so delicate and ornate that it is a huge magnet for things to get caught in it. Like baby poop. And puke. When we started looking for rings I had originally just wanted a simple band but then the husband took me to a vintage and estate clothing and jewelry expo and a week later it was mine. For three years it has lived on my finger all regal like but in the back of my mind I always knew it would need to be put aside when baby comes...so when the husband suggested for our three year anniversary we get me a new wedding band you better believe I jumped at the chance. I didn't want anything fancy and had been looking on Etsy for a while for something sweet and simple but without trying it on I was having trouble making a decision. Then one day we were walking in our neighborhood and stopped in on a shop just to get my finger sized; 30 minutes later I had purchased my new band. I had never given this store a second thought but after walking into Pearl and seeing their contemporary pieces I just had to try a few on. Though my new band may not be as flashy as my original wedding ring, it has character and was made by a local designer. I love to support local businesses and this rings artist is so local I could literally walk to her neighborhood from my house!
I have a few jewelry boxes that I have been storing bits and pieces in but something so cherished as my wedding ring might just need its own box. I'm loving these individual ring boxes from Oh Dier, made from salvaged oak wooden banisters and givin a bit of life with a touch of paint. I might just have to pick one up for something so near and dear to me, after all, I will be having a daughter that will no doubt be eyeing my ring in no time.
