Lot 48: my ring obsession

my ring obsession


i have a confession for you.  i have been wearing bling bling on my wedding ring finger since high school.  frankly, i don't think it is that uncommon.  i know a lot of girls who would wear rings as a way to keep creeps away from them.  it's a common tactic.  i wore rings for that reasons, sure.  but mostly, i just love rings.  especially on that finger.

when i was single, when i wore it on that finger, it made me feel loved, like i belonged to someone and comforted.  wow, that sounds really pathetic.  

even though i am now married, i still switch out my wedding ring for other rings frequently.  the ring above i bought with my own money several months ago because i hadn't bought myself a wedding ring in a while.  and i like to switch it up.  that might sounds really rude and disrespectful to my sweet husband who worked hard to buy me my wedding ring, but i promise you, he doesn't mind when i wear different rings.  

truthfully, i get on a kick where i wear a fake one for a while but then go back to my real one because there really is no ring in the universe as beautiful as my real ring.  it's gorgeous.  it signifies our bond and our commitment to each other and his love for me. it's my favorite ring that i own, and that is why i wear it the most often is why it is the only ring out of the literal dozen of rings that i haven't lost.  i still stare at it all the time, especially when i am driving.  it's a hazard.  everyone knows it is shiniest while driving by the sunlight! 

i love what rings signify.  when you have a ring on that "that" finger, it means that there is someone out there that loves you.  but what about when a man has a ring on "that" finger? what do you think when you see that? you just think married, but if you think about it more, do you think, "there is a woman out there who loves him so much she put a ring on it" or "he loves his wife so he marked himself taken." i think with women, a ring says "he liked it, so he put a ring on it." not "she liked him so she put it on on herself." but with guys, i think it is that way. without angering feminists, women are "marked", men "mark" themselves.   

what do you think? who "marks who?" 
do you have any fake wedding rings? even if you are married or not?

  1. I have a purity ring on the left hand that I've worn since I was 13. I mayyyy or may not have used it as an engagement/wedding ring excuse to get a creep to stop hitting on me at a bar once.

  2. I very deliberately keep rings away from that finger. Especially now since people will get all unnecessarily excited if they see it and jump to conclusions. But it's a fun idea.

  3. I LOVE the ring you picked out for yourself and your wedding ring/band. So incredibly beautiful! I do on occasion wear rings on this finger, but haven't in a really long time (I think secretly I'm hoping my bf of four years will notice the valuable real estate and put a damn ring on it, LOL!).

    Thanks so much for sharing :)

  4. I'm single so I won't touch that finger when it comes to rings, but every other finger is going show bling, even the engagement finger.
