Love Isn't Suppose to Hurt

As some of you may know I got engaged this summer to my fabulous guy. This makes me very happy but dreams of fluffy white dresses and giant weddings make me hyperventilate.
We spent a lot of time talking about it and decided that we did want some sort of engagement ring. We wanted something a bit non traditional and preferably handmade. Our first try looked really pretty but after wearing it for a couple of weeks my hands were bruised and I was in pain, I finally confessed that it wasn't working and stuck it on a chain around my neck. A few weeks into this I ran into my friend Scott B who was very excited about the engagement but concerned about the fact that the ring was clearly not rocking my world. As he hugged me good bye the ring dug into both of our necks and he uttered the immortal words "love's not suppose to hurt my dear"
And so the great ring quest began and I am happy to share with all my friends, loved ones and fans our success:

The ring is from Norris and Ryan design and you can find her great work here.
She answered a million questions for me and re-sized it to fit my small fingers (for a girl of 5'10" I have very small fingers) And she even took extra care to smooth down the sides to make it more comfortable. We love it and it feels just right, just like my guy.

Perfect ring -- strong and delicate, just like its wearer. Nice pic, too -- that second one is great, you should send it to the maker to post on her Etsy site!
