Alpha Ring, Part II

Everyone seemed to really like the Little Green Room alpha ring L. surprised me with that I posted about last week, and I thought it might be fun if I posted pictures of the actual ring with the actual correct initial (L., of course), rather than the stock photos with the "A" that I posted last week.


No one has commented on it yet, which I thought was notable since I think the ring is really shiny and noticeable. Except, that is, for my friend Rachel, who was looking through pictures I had taken on my (er, L.'s) camera and stumbled across these, and yelled, "Michelle! Is that a diamond!???"

No it is not. Thankfully for L., this ring was about 5,000% less expensive. (But it's approximately the right size...)


Here it is on. Sorry about the weird clarity of all the grooves on my hands--just focus on the shiny ring! I've worn it every day so far and although it's a tad big (who knew a 6.5 would be BIG?), I would never want L. to order another one. I'm really sentimental about things like that. (Like, really. To the point where, when L. got me a beautiful gold chain and pearl-drop necklace for my 20th birthday, I never wanted to take it off because HE had put it on, on THAT night.)

It has one tiny nick on the right side, which at first I was really bummed about. But I think it just symbolizes how much I love it and wear it? Let's go with that.

  3. People get so consumed with "perfection" in things as opposed to perfection in the moment. The gesture. I think your attitude about it is perfect. :) The ring is lovely and your hand looks just fine too. LOL

    I'm blog hopping today. Happy Wednesday!
