David’s Custom Wedding Ring

David’s ring arrived today, in a brown paper package tied up with string. I have thus far managed not to lick it, which I think shows admirable restraint.

It was custom made for us in Brooklyn by Blanca Monros Gomez. Blanca should thank her lucky stars that we no longer live in Brooklyn, or I might delightedly lick her as well. It’s really that lovely.

PS I had a secret message engraved on it for David that he’s not allowed to see till our wedding day. I like secret messages.
PPS Yes, yes, of *course* you’ll all get to see the ring… soon enough.

  • Aaaaaaaah so exciting!!! Custom rings are truly one of the happy wonders of this world…

    Of course, I have been debating over what to engrave on the inside of E’s, for, oh, about a year now. Praying for inspiration.


  • That is the best packaging ever.

  • that’s SO cool. my fiance and I are getting our rings engraved too. I love it because the word means is sweet if a stranger were to read it but then there’s special meaning for the two of us as well.

    can’t wait to see it! (also i DO live in brooklyn so i’ll be checking out blanco monros!)

  • Yay! I love her stuff so much.

  • Yes. I had the same trouble with nearly licking yummy things last week. Sometimes it is hard not to lick things.

    (brown paper package! string! secret messages!)

  • wow! the package looks so magical!

  • Meg

    I know you did, Amanda. I know. Sigh.

  • Custom rings are the only way to go, in my humble opinion. I wish I had a photo of ours. Our first initials in Arabic linked together all the way around the bands, inlaid in silver. Our own, very public, secret.

    Can’t wait to see his!

    Brown paper packages tied up with string? Why those are one of my favourite things.

  • Delicious and mysterious!

  • sam

    I love it! I might kiss the screen.

    We’re getting custom rings made… I can’t wait to see them, and this lovely package has me even more excited.

  • Secret message! Best idea!!! I love secret messages too.

  • I love the package, how cool is the ring inside I am left to wonder!?!?!?

  • Oh I simply adore secret messages that only the two of you understand.

  • You are going to make him try it on *now* though, right? If it doesn’t fit you want to know in time to adjust it before the wedding.

  • Meg

    Oh, it’s been tried on, while I yelled “Don’t look, don’t look inside, DON’T!”

  • because you are practical.
