Remember this picture of our wedding rings?
As much as I gushed about my ring last week, I am REALLY in love with the ring we chose for Patrick. It all started with a trip to the jeweler who was trying to sell us one of these numbers:
Nothing against these traditional bands, but I was not interested in the shiny gold style. When I asked him if he had any more contemporary, "younger" options, he did pull out a tray of alternative metal bands. One band immediately caught both of our eyes. It was a unique ring by Fable Designs. The ring was made of titanium, but had a real wood inlay.
The ring they had on display was this beauty:
Pretty, but it was a little too light in color.
Then we saw this option......but I wasn't too keen on the Black Zirconium.
The jeweler gave us the website to review additional choices online and we settled on this style:
This is a titanium ring with a Red Mallee Burl wood inlay. Winner!! I love that each ring is unique because of the variations in the wood inlay. Patrick has received numerous compliments on this band and I am so happy with our decision to choose something less traditional for his ring.
