You Friends might wonder why I look so made up here. I actually tried out the bridal look on the weekend. Yep, Friends, I'm getting married in April! We won't have any big, extravagant party, just a simple ceremony at Church, then off to honeymoon. Both my fiance and I prefer a small, intimate wedding. No stress, no fuss.
So, yes, please pray for us and wish us well! ^_^
Ow, I've been having problem with my laptop and have to borrow a friend's laptop to write post. So, I'm sorry if I've been a bit behind in replying to comments lately.
LBD: Red Valentino. Purse: Philippe Charriol. Accessories: bought on-line and various old collection.
Shoes: Yongki Komaladi.
I like the makeup, but I think the hair is too big. I could do with less hair teasing on my wedding day.
What do you think, Friends?
When I bought this necklace online, I was afraid it would be too much. Turned out that my doubts were unfounded. I've got lots of compliments on it, even from my big brother, who usually doesn't pay any attention to my outfit at all!
Since the wedding would be nothing like an extravagant nor elaborate affair, my fiance and I have enough time and peace of mind to plan for things that matter to us: our new home, the honeymoon, furniture shopping, and also some small details that we think are important and meaningful, such as song choices for the wedding, and of course, the wedding rings!
The odd thing is, I'm not a ring person, nor is my fiance. However, we both agree that wedding rings are something very meaningful and sentimental, so they should be something timeless and beautiful. Hence we decided on diamond wedding rings, not just because "Diamonds are forever", but because diamond jewelry are always in style and will never look out of date even on our 50-year anniversary, if God allows! We've been hunting for THE perfect rings for some time now, from brick and mortar jewelry stores, to online ones.
And one of them is Anjolee.
Anjolee is a specialized diamond jewelry manufacturer based in San Diego, USA, that has been in business since 1977. I've heard about them before, and since they are an online store and able to ship to Indonesia, in our search for THE perfect diamond wedding rings, we decided to see what they have.
Surfing through Anjolee's diamond wedding ring selection, we found these three models that we like. The nice thing about Anjolee's website is, you can zoom the picture to see the detail of the jewelry. You can even see it in 3D, which is good because when you buy something like diamond jewelry online, you cannot touch it the way you do at brick and mortar store, but you still want to make sure that you like every single thing of your choice - the clasp, the back, the earring clip, etc. - not just how it looks two dimentionally. Another nice thing is, Anjolee provides you with the basic model, but you can customize it to your liking AND budget, such as white or metal gold, 14, 6, or 18K, diamond size, diamond quality. The price will change according to your customization, which is very helpful because everybody has their own taste and set budget when shopping for wedding ring.
Anyway, these are the three models of diamond wedding rings that we like, though we still cannot decide which one we like best. Also, we still question whether we prefer the modern white or yellow gold or platinum for the wedding ring's band.
This one is called Triple Spaced Diamond Ring in platinum. Simple and elegant.
This is the same model of yellow gold.
Some might consider yellow gold as old-fashioned, but we think it has a very ethereal classic feel to it.
This one is called Everlasting Love Four Prong Diamond Eternity Ring. It's just gorgeous and very romantic, because all those diamonds around the band represent everlasting long and eternity. Of course, with so many diamonds, the price will be higher. That's the only unromantic thing about this gorgeous diamond wedding ring! For this model I prefer the platinum band. It's such a nice backdrop for all those sparkling diamonds.
And look at this one! It's called Five Across Alternating Gemstone Anniversary Ring, and I fell in love with the gold one with red garnets on it. It's totally beautiful, but both my fiance and I agree that this looks more like anniversary ring or something a man would be his lady for Valentine's day instead of a wedding ring. Still, it's very beautiful, don't you think?
I would't mind getting this as an anniversary ring!
What girl doesn't like to get a diamond anniversary ring? Haha!
You know what, this one is perfect for my parents' anniversary rings. They have just renewed their marriage vow during the Holyland trip last year, in Cana. My Mom definitely deserves a diamond anniversary ring! Of course, it's not about expensive gifts, but it's still a very nice and romantic gesture, don't you think?
And look, here is a picture of my Dad kneeled in front of my Mom, with someone's wedding car and Mediteranian Sea as the background. How cute is that! Please go to the original post here for more pictures.
Ow, we went to Luna Negra for dinner after Church. Since I had been dolled up already, so we thought, let's not waste the money spent for this makeup and hair, and go some place nice!
