renewed and restored

today i got to do something i've been wanting to do for about a while now... i got my wedding rings fixed!!

just to refresh your memory... the rings in their original state and broken click here

and when i say fixed, i don't just mean re-sized... ever since lee gave me the engagement ring, the setting has been a little high for my taste (well, i just didn't realize how many things i could snag or how many things i could hit it on when it was sitting up so high)

after i had them cut off, i decided that when i had them fixed, i would also see about having the setting re-done.

the folks at jolly's made the suggestion of having the main stone put in a bezel setting--it could sit really low and it would be really secure in its setting... she also mentioned it would make the ring look really clean and contemporary... and that sounded right up my alley!

i got to go pick them up today and i could NOT be happier!! i'm in love all over again!!
the setting is MUUUUUCH lower and its hard to see from the picture, 
but the main stone is completely encapsulated, 
so no dirt or grime can get under the stone! yippeeee!!

(below: the outer "rim" of the stone is the setting now)
i certainly loved my wedding set before, but i REALLY love it now! 

(not to mention the sizing is better this go 'round, too!!) my rings individually could be worn at the size they were before, but the problem was when worn together, the bands are pretty thick at the bottom--it makes it like wearing a MUCH thicker band--so you go up a size or two... (and THAT probably didn't help the situation when i felt like my finger was gonna fall off! oh well.)
