As you can see, it is a rose. I am sorry the picture didn't turn out clearer, I sure did try! The neat thing about this Black Hills gold ring is the rose petals are made out of the pink gold (where copper got into the gold), the leaves are made out of the green gold ( where zinc got into the gold) and the band is made out of the yellow gold.
Many years ago ( 21 yrs ago ) my Canadian sweetheart swooped me off my feet and proposed to me. That same year my three best friends were all getting married and I was the last to be engaged. I broke the rule of three times a bridesmaid never a bride. [o= The day I accepted his proposal we went ring shopping of course. I told my sweetie I didn't care how big the diamond was all I wanted was a Black Hills Gold ring. One thing I didn't realize was that up in Canada Black Hills Gold jewelry wasn't common to find, actually you have to special order it. After many hours of looking I told him that there was a VERY pretty set ( and it wasn't that much either) down in my hometown of Kirkland, Washington. [o= The neat thing was by the time he came down, a couple weeks later, we saw it it had gone on 20% off. So that was the end of the hunt.
In the last 7 years I had put on some weight and it was fitting tighter and I never took it off because it hurt. But when I noticed the diamond had fallen out ...I had to take it off. ( No, sadly we never found the diamond. ) I have held off getting the ring refitted because I wanted to get my weight down first. I have lost 10 lbs and I would like to loose another 10 lbs before I get the ring re-sized and get a new diamond set in.
My motivation to loose the next set of 10 lbs is... to get my wedding ring back on my finger. [o= You might be asking if I have been ring-less this last month. No, I put my other Black Hills Gold ring that I had on my other hand on till then. I couldn't bare the thought of not having a ring on my ring finger. I thought that was a good goal with a real good carrot dangling for me. What do you think? [o=
