You Become Part of a Much Bigger Love Story
My own aquamarine engagement ring is from the 1920s and has the initials R.B engraved on the inside of it. I have no idea who "R.B" was, but I love the idea of my ring being a part of someone else's love story, too. It's such a beautiful, secret detail and it's inspired my fiance and I to get our wedding rings engraved with each other's initials before our wedding day. When she saw the ring, one of my bridesmaids told me that she really liked the idea of someone in the 1920s being just a little bit like me, which made my heart soar. When your grandchildren ask the story of your romance, it's these details that will go in your made-for-Netflix love story.
Top tip: Make sure you look inside the ring for any secret messages, and ask your jeweller to look in more detail at the hallmark so you'll know exactly where you ring was made and when.
