I don't know if I agree with the ring to big advise. Sometimes I think my ring is going to come flying off in the pool. It won't, but it is still anoying sometimes that I can remove it so easily. And my wife loves it when I fling it across the room. Then again humid days like today, it is comfortable, and I cannot get it off easily. I fitted ring may be uncomfortable. However, one would think after seven years, I could have gotten it resized.
my fiance and I got our rings at a small family jeweler too, they were great! I have a very unusual engagement ring (ruby) that they made for me.
So we buy the wedding band the other day and that night the groom tries his on again before we pack them up for the wedding (3.5 weeks!!!) He then informs me that he does not want to take his ring off, he claims to feel empowered by the ring. too cute, well at the very least, i will not have to worry about him not wearing it!
I play with my ring ALL the time. happy to wear it but it takes a while to get used to.
