In lieu of an outfit of the day photo I want to share my favorite jewelry piece. This is a poesy ring that my Bf bought me during our first year together. Poesy or love rings were originally meant as a lover's token, a wedding ring, or a means of showing regard. Tradition is that you start out with silver and use the gold version for your wedding.
I love the idea of a promise ring, but wanted something more original. Ours say," You have my whole heart my whole life." in French. It's been now nine years and mine still looks brand new, considering I smashed it along with my finger in the closet. His on the other hand looks like it's been in the garbage disposal. It is now broken and thinned with the letters rubbed off. Lucky for us you can still purchase them, and he has a replacement sitting, waiting for him.

I have only come across another woman that had a similar ring. Her's was a gold wedding band that said," I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine." How sweet is that. I always get the curious glances at my ring and the eventual question. It just means that much more to me to have a token of our love and commitment to one another. Now is a gold one in my future? Probably platinum :)
