I am completely obsessed with it and still get caught up in the sparkle at moments. This past winter my mom and I went to Saxon’s in Bel Air to purchase a pandora charm and of course while we were picking it out they offered to clean my mother’s rings. When we had made our purchase and the rings were still being cleaned the salesperson suggested that we look at some other things (of course) and we ended up looking at engagement rings. The salesman there was super helpful, and I actually found a ring that I thought was great.
Fast forward several months and Carson and I finally went back to that store so I could show him the ring that I thought was “the one”…well we were both disappointed because it wasn’t like I remembered it. We did end up finding a ring that was more along the lines of what we wanted but Carson wasn’t 100% convinced. We ended up stopping at Jared’s (obviously those commercials work) and finding a ring that was exactly like something I had seen on Pinterest. I wasn’t 100% ready to let go of the previous ring though so I ended up asking one of my recently engaged friends (now married!) where they had purchased her ring and she told me about Smyth.
The Sunday before we were leaving for Vermont we decided to check Smyth out as our last jewerly store in hopes of finding the ring. Our salesman was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and actually got engaged in Vermont as well! We ended up looking at probably more than 10 different rings and it came down to my ring and this other super intricate gorgeous knot detail ring but I ended up choosing mine because I thought it was simple yet had the beautiful nature inspired halo that also had the symbolism of two intertwined lives.
What really makes my ring dear to my heart though is the fact that the center stone is my grandmother’s from her engagement ring. I was never able to meet my grandmother sadly but I am so thankful to have this little part of her and a part of my family with me forever!
