I should've posted this one last week as it was closer to the actual anniversary, but I didn't think of it in time. So, I'm sharing it now.
One year ago (on February 28th) my now husband, Chris and I were on vacation when he surprised me by proposing. I will be keeping the details of his proposal to myself as it was a private moment for us and I would like to keep it that way.
The ring, however, is has a story of it's own.
This is my engagement ring.
My husband made it - yes, made it - from the first bass string of my Grandpa’s piano.
My Grandpa passed away almost 2 years ago now. He was a huge influence in my life as a musician. I even lived with him and my grandma my first year and a half of college. Losing him was very hard on me and Chris' decision to make this ring is the most thoughtful thing anyone has ever done for me.
By the way, if you want your own piano string jewelry, you should head on over to his Etsy shop where you can find earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Sorry no rings though, I kinda want this to be a one of a kind. :)
