Carving a Promise: Some Ideas On Engraved Wedding Rings from Reading

Recently, a married couple in Michigan became famous all over the Internet because of their ingenious wedding ring. A photo that circulated around the web showed the inside of a man’s wedding ring, inscribed with the words “Put it back on”. The inscription, the man said, was his wife’s idea. Whilst some may dismiss it as too possessive, her husband actually appreciated the inscription, which may have contributed to their strong marriage for five years and counting. Wedding Rings from Reading In a world where words and images disappear as quickly as they appear, wedding rings engraved with meaningful words of love is one of the many ways soon-to-be-wed couples can hold on to their promise of loving one another. Like the aforementioned example, it doesn’t have to be too saccharine or too cheesy, as long as the words engraved on your rings mean something significant for both of you.

Jewellers in Reading Delve Seductive Amethyst folklore

Simply gazing upon this exquisite purple gemstone is enough for one to feel calm and peaceful, yet amethyst does more than that. Coveted long ago by royalty and ecclesiastical princes, the seductive-looking amethyst was believed to help protect people against seduction and drunkenness. Today, jewellers in Reading take this gemstone to be considered an apt stone for those born in February. Not Intoxicated The gemstone’s name is said to be derived from the Greek word “amethystos”, or “not intoxicated”. Ancient Greeks associated its wine-like colour to their god of wine, Dionysus, and was believed to make wearers have a clear head and a quick wit during battle and business affairs.
