i have been wearing the same 14k gold hoop earrings for over a month now. this might not seem out of the ordinary to most people, but i generally dont wear jewelry. its not that i dont like it, but where other women consider picking out jewelry just like they would shoes(its a basic part of the outfit), i just dont take the time to do that. i have a few sentimental pieces, like the gold hoop earrings that mr southern gentleman gave me and the rest is just junk.
whenever i take the time to pick out jewelry, i always get a few extra compliments on how good i look that day. a little bling goes a long way.
except when it comes to engagement and wedding rings. except for me. i dont care. well, i do care, but not in the way you might think. if i were to fall in love again and the object of my affection asked me to marry him, i would want him to want to give me a really nice ring, BUT it wouldnt take 2 carats or more to please me.
i realize that its total satire, but the girl over at seriously so blessed has gone on about her ring, and i think its typical of what a lot of women expect. while i dont care for the whole idea that the size of the ring is somehow indicative of how much your intended loves you, i like the idea of someone loving me so much that they want to spoil me and show the world with this outward showing. the ring.
i have one friend in particular who would pass out if she heard me say this, but i wouldnt care if it was a cubic zirconia in a nice setting. is it crazy not to care, but i want him to care? probably.
