No More Wedding Rings

8 posts in this topic

I used to wear two wedding rings - I lost my first husband to cancer when he was 40.

Because of Raynaud's I have had to have my 2 rings cut off :angry:

Sorry to hear that, Carole. Double bad news, but I don't think you will be sad for long, going by your name! Could you have them melted down and made into something to wear round your neck, maybe?

 

I can't get any of my old rings on anymore, thanks to misshapen hands as well. So I sympathise.

 

Keep smiling, it increases your face appeal!

Yes, my first thought was to have them made into a pendant.

I don't know how long I am going to have this terrible mark around my finger. Never mind, I could have a lot worse to moan about

Hi Carole,

 

How about having your two rings joined together in a link or maybe the horizontal figure of 8 that symbolizes eternity? It wouldn't be too costly and you could put them on a pretty chain and still wear them every day.

My fingers have tightened so much that I am unable to wear my rings for falling off! I will have to have them undersized, hoping fingers don't swell again.

Hello Carole

 

I had all my rings cut off, it was really emotional!

 

My dear husband took them all to a jeweller and made them into an earing and pendant set that I can wear instead. It's better than having them gathering dust and it was a wonderful surprise as I knew nothing about it until my husband gave them to me.

 

I recommend being creative with the rings so you can still wear them.

 

Take care.

Hi Carole and all of you ingenious ladies! I love the great ideas that many of you have come up with!

 

Jeannie, I especially loved your idea of the figure eight, symbolizing eternity...to me, that's VERY romantic! :D

 

I was another, who had mine resized aways down the road. I've been married nearly 23 years and although I have an eternity ring, I missed wearing my wedding rings. So, when I had that done, I also had them add two rings to incorporate with my set, as mine was thinning. I'm happy with the results and it's very comfortable.


Special Hugs,
