Our wedding rings

Last night, Alex and I biked over to Brooklyn to meet with jewelry designer Blanca Monros Gomez about our wedding rings. Blanca was warm and wonderful, and I'd highly recommend her for anyone looking for a wedding ring. It felt exciting and romantic to choose them. (I chose the thin gold square ring, above, and Alex chose the bigger square ring; those black diamonds are so pretty, too, though!)

kate said...

Elyse said...

Oh, I am so happy for you! I checked out her Etsy shop, and her jewelry is SO perfect! =D

Lena said...

absolutely beautiful!!
wow, i'm totally in love with the black diamond ring.
i followed your link to smitten... josh and i were at frankie sputino last night too!

Melissa said...

Congrats, Joanna! :)

Lena said...

we were there really early... around 7:00. we tried to eat in the back, but they told us it was too chilly, so i didn't get a peek at the back stable open. i love that back building... such a great place to have a wedding party, huh?

Dionne said...

Oh how exciting! It's getting closer!!!

erica said...

So pretty and elegant.

Quixsa said...

I love your style!! The rings are beautiful!

Kelley at My Island Wedding said...

Oh Congrats! These are exciting times! Please enjoy them all...

CreativeOCD said...

That's so exciting that you got to pick them out, they're beautiful! My fiancé and I are about to do the same very soon, I can't wait!

Jane Flanagan said...

Stunning. I love the plain ones so much. You must be getting so excited now! I can't even imagine how you must be feeling!!

sweetnesslight said...

So cute! My husband wears a $50 ring we found in a little jewelry store in Cape Town, South Africa - we didn't want to spend too much because he's always losing things! Mine, on the other hand, is a little more valuable...

Love the fact that you are getting them custom made.

Maki said...

Plain beautiful!!! I love the simplicity that exuberates elegance.. How exciting time for both you and Alex!!!

Erienne said...

Gorgeous choices!! I love that they are eco-friendly too. Just makes them even more beautiful and kind of gives them a bit of history already, no?! Congrats again and can't wait to read more about the planning!

Leigh said...

I love love love everything about the rings you guys chose. The reclaimed gold, the different yet complimentary styles, the wonderful little diamonds on yours! Beautiful.

Gillian said...

You are right her designs are very elegant and romantic. I really liked the delicate flower rings.

Joanna Goddard said...

thank you so much! these comments are so nice, and my heart is overflowing :)

Melissa said...

Really lovely!
There is something special about rings from a jewellery designer as opposed to the maistream machine made variety.
The handmade item usually retains
that indvidual "hand made feeling"

pixelhazard said...

Oh you have put me in the mood for all things weddings. Those simple rings look so elegant...i don't think the boy with be impressed with me though

Rebecca said...

That's super exciting.. congratulations!

Ms Shanna said...

can't wait to see the final product that you two chose!

The Wanderers' Daughter said...

Ours are like that first photo - simple, a bit industrial, and platinum. When my mum first saw the engagement ring my husband chose for me, she saw it right away: he understands you.

A Day That is Dessert said...

I looked at these last night when I saw your twitter update, and tried to guess which you'd choose... so wonderful and exciting. Thank you for sharing.

Lola Is Beauty said...

ahhh I love the black diamond one - i want to marry myself so I can buy it! They are beautiful rings, how lovely and to meet the person who makes them makes it so much better...

Frau said...

Love your ring choices. After 21 years of marriage I look at mine with such love of the early days. Good luck!

Ruth said...

I love the rings you chose. People usually get really excited around weddings and often the tendency leads to buying huge rings, that in the end, will totally limit your ring wearing options down the road. The ring you chose is great because its down spoken and can be worn alone or with some other rings, and is therefor a lot less limiting.

JooJoo said...

Oh! Her jewelry is amazing! I love her Flower collection so much! And her rings are so simple and stylish! I wish the you two happiness Joanna!! :) xox

Kristin said...

I think that the second set is my dream wedding rings! Beautiful!

Joanna Goddard said...

thank you so much for all your incredibly sweet comments :)

Patricia Grannum said...

those are so beautiful. I wish you and your fiance all the happiness in the world.

thoughtful day said...

lovely! how exciting! i feel so much cooler wearing my wedding rings - there is just something about their presence that makes me feel a little different.

east side bride said...

These are gorg, Joanna.

The rings are so important! People gloss over them sometimes in the middle of wedding planning, but that's the thing you're gonna wear *forever* !!

You want to look down at your ring every day and *love* it.

Fabi said...

these rings are so dainty and stunning. perfect for wedding rings. i can't believe i have been reading your blog and never asked, but would you be so kind as to trade links with me? :) xo

Melissa said...

That's so exciting!

Beatriz Kim said...

Oh...the first pair make my heart flutter! You have great taste!

It's so romantic! Hope you tell us which one you chose!

miss b said...

Impeccable. Well done.

Good-Grace said...

The wedding rings on the bottom are my favorite. I like that they aren't diamonds, it makes it more unique.

Great Post. Thanks for that. I too like using Tungsten Rings. It is very stylish and awesome. Thats why I preferred buying my wedding rings in tungsten itself.
