My Diamonds

For Valentines Day this year we re-did my engagement ring. The setting was worn, and over the years I’d lost two diamonds out of it. I’ve been wearing it with a diamond missing for months because we just hadn’t gotten around to getting it fixed. So a week or so ago we brought the ring to a jeweler, talked over our options and decided to go with a whole new setting for my original diamonds. It was done just in time for Valentines Day.

I am not really a glitzy girl, but I’m almost embarrassed to admit how often I’ve been sneaking peeks at it. It is white gold, with three channel-set diamonds on either side of my solitaire. I love it. Oh, and this story would not be complete without a picture of the real diamonds in my life.


  1. What gorgeous diamonds! ALL OF 'EM!

    I LOVE the new setting. No guilt–that ring is a symbol of so much more than status.

  2. Aw, look at the grins! Priceless. (Nice ring, too!) 🙂

  5. I love LOVE your family. The joy is so evident!

  6. The picture of the kids is fantastic! All 8 look fine and natural, not posed . And the diamond ring is a symbol of married love, not how much money you have. What a great Valentine gift!

  7. I am so happy for you that you were able to redo your ring. I so understand. I received a new one for Christmas/anniversary and found myself doing the same thing. Each time I saw the sparkles in the light I was reminded of the loves of my life.

  8. Beautiful! All of your Diamonds that is. You are blessed beyond the value of the diamonds on your finger. Yet, I like to look at my sparklies too. It reminds me of how I am cherished by my beloved.

  9. Your children are beautiful. The ring is beautiful.My, you are blessed.
