One more step toward marriage: Lauren and I chose our rings this week ... after sorting through a few designs, we settled on this one.
We wanted something stylish, but not too extravagant, and settled on a titanium design (very light and hypoallergenic), that nicely complemented the Claddagh rings we chose for our engagement.
When it came to choosing an inscription, we were making the usual Lord of the Rings jokes about the "One Ring to rule them all ...", and it took a bit of thought to come up with an appropriate engraving other than that. Since the two of us are both fans of mystic poet Jalal-Uddin Rumi, we arrived at this:
"Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along."
Of course, we'll probably continue to joke that in order to read the inscription properly, you'll have to throw the rings into a fire ....
