I am going to wear mine until I am dead on my left hand then my youngest daughter can do whatever she likes with it. There is a story behind this ring it was not the first ring of 27 years ago. It is one I designed after my ring finger was severely broken and the old set had to be cut off. My old set had a very small 1/4 carat diamond and was white gold and was 2 interlocking pieces. I was told I could pick out a larger diamond because I had to have a wider band to accomodate my injured finger. I jumped on that like a dog on a bone. Long story a little shorter I got another 1/4 and a .56 carat put in a very uniquely styled ring. I had the rest of the other ring made into 2 rings. My STBX commented often that had he known the size of the larger diamond he would have never paid for it. He never wore his original ring even before I got the new one. He chose to wear a white and yellow gold ring with 3- 3/4 carats of diamonds he bought from an estate. He did however, give me great grief about "melting down" my original set.
So why am I going to continue to wear it? To remind me daily that I have no more "minutes" to waste on any man. It serves to let lookers think I am married and thus leave me alone. It's a beautitful ring. I am 62, attractiveand in great physical shape. I have always been able to do anything a man can do so I don't need one to do stuff for me. I am not lonely. I have 3 pets, many girlfriends and many interests. I am extrememly happy to be with"ME". My youngest daughter is expecting twins in December and unlike my other 5 grandchildren who are all grown I will actually be able to be a part of these babies lives because I don't have a jealous clingy man demanding my time.
Find your own happiness ladies.
Hoooray for you. I'm adjusting slowly, but do enjoy not having a "clinging vine" around or should I say a Burden.
As far as old rings go, had mine cut off by jeweler a couple of years before I left. It did feel good as then you know you are acknowledging it's over. But still have the rings as my father was a custom jeweler and had made the set for me. One day hope to have the "mine cut" diamonds taken out and melt down the platinum. But because I do feel "naked" without a ring on my left hand, always wear other rings on that ring finger. Am not sure if that is right but do it anyway.
Put it this way, "I would rather be single and have dreams than to stay with someone and think of what it could have been. " Must admit I have to remind myself of this ever so often.
