I have a bit of a cautionary tale to tell today about wedding rings, adventure and how they don’t always work well together. (Keep reading for your chance to win a QALO prize pack – including a QALO clutch, stackables and some other health & beauty surprises!)
For a few summers in a row, the Hubs’ side of the family all met for a week at Lake Murray. We all had a grand time boating, hanging out and even jet skiing! Soon after this photo was taken the Hubs went back out on the jet ski with our nephew, Cole who was eight at the time.
About an hour later the Hubs and Cole both came in drenched, looking a little sore and very sad. They were goofing off and flipped the jet ski.
The whole family went into action making sure both the boys were ok, which other than being sore they were. Then we check on the jet ski and it was also fine. Despite the clean bill of health and no damage to the jet ski, The Hubs and Cole still had these really sad looks on their faces.
The Hubs finally reluctantly said that when the jet ski flipped his wedding ring fell off. They had both swam around trying to find it, but it was gone. The ring was the original expensive white gold ring I had given him at our Hawaii wedding, with a special engraving. I wasn’t mad, but we both were just sad because it was irreplaceable.
The moral of the story is to not go jet skiing with your nice fine jewelry wedding rings on.
After that, the Hubs actually went without a wedding ring for more than a year, because we just couldn’t find the right one to replace it. It wasn’t a great situation because some of his clients even asked if something had happened with us. But none of the rings we looked at felt as special as the first one. Finally when we went back to Hawaii for our 4th Anniversary we found a ring in a Hawaiian jewelry store that just felt right. We both love the new one and are pretty set on keeping it this time.
Since we’ve had the experience of losing something so special, we are now both really gun shy about bringing our fancy wedding rings places. You probably can’t tell but we are ringless on this sailboat ride in Key West.
We’re also ringless here playing with dolphins on the Big Island of Hawaii.
And when we went to Brazil for two and half weeks we left our rings at home in Asheville because we didn’t want them to get lost or stolen. Some countries it’s just not safe to bring flashy jewelry.
And while we were both ok with the Hubs going ringless for that time period, I honestly feel much more comfortable with a ring on. After not having one and then having one again, the Hubs now feels the same way. That entire trip to Brazil my hand just felt naked and I definitely got hit on more, which isn’t fun for anyone involved.
I recently learned about an alternative option for wedding rings that finally takes care of our problem and hopefully yours too! QALO is the wedding ring solution for those of us who love fitness, adventure and travel. They are perfect to wear when you just feel like it’s not safe or practical to wear your fancy bling!
