I’ve been thinking a lot lately about wedding rings (as you do), and I keep thinking that we’ve lost the plot with wedding rings a little bit. Wedding rings have become more and more about the object, the glitter, the glitz, when really what they are is a symbol. Now, I’m deeply aesthetically particular, and I like me some pretty, but I want to remember what my wedding ring means to me and it is not what it *is.* Well, amazingly, it turns out that APW sponsor Turtle Love Committee has been reading my mind (and they do pretty). We’ve talked in the past about how Turtle Love makes affordable unique wedding rings and cool engagement rings. But! They just launched the new project, the Three Promises Ring, which I am a little bit in love with.These rings are made up of three simple bands, each of which is meant to represent a promise that you make to each other in your wedding day, which I adore. It’s a way to incorporate your vows into something physical that you will carry with you, or to remember private pledges that you make to each other on that day. For me, the simplicity of these rings is a way to help us remember what our rings mean, to help us remember that love is an action that we have to continue to live.Also, I just want to point out, that three has long been considered to be a mystical number, and has great religious and non-religious significance (Three circles in many modern Jewish weddings, the trinity, a Fibonacci number… you know, however you roll). Three is, in my book, a good number. The Three Promises rings come in a variety of different styles for different tastes, and you should go browse!
And finally, just so you don’t forget Turtle Love Committee’s great non-diamond engagement rings, let me point out that the new wedding website for LGBTQ couples and allies, So You’re EnGAYged, which is hosting a Turtle Love Committee ring giveaway that I think you should check out.
Now seriously, go look at the Three Promises Bands (when you click through, they have a cool banner right at the bottom of the page that you must look at.)
