Fox & Bear Personal – Bear’s Wedding Ring

Personal Wedding

I’m in the market for a new wedding ring. It makes me sad but I’m going to have to get a new one before my wedding band breaks and I lose it for good.

I should probably explain that when we we’re planning our wedding, I broke from the traditional metal and went for a wooden ring. When we were looking for wedding bands I just couldn’t find anything that was right for me. We are strong believers in couples doing what is right for them when it comes to getting married. For me, I just wasn’t getting excited about silver or gold (seemingly the only choices for grooms back when we were planning). Vicky suggested looking for something that wasn’t the norm and we ended up discovering Stout Woodworks.

My wedding ring

We’ve been married since 2014. For the last 3 and half years I’ve worn this ring day in day out, but daily wear has taken it’s toil. It’s scuffed and scratched and even has a huge gouge taken out one side from when I was stupid and fell off a skateboard. I’m clumsy. I know that one day I’m going to snap it by accident. I don’t want it to end up in bits. It’s a testament to Stout Woodworks that I haven’t broken it already. Although I will replace it, I certainly won’t throw this ring away. The scuffs and dents hold so many memories and feelings. Even if it’s in bits I will keep this piece of wood forever.

What would you do?

What do you think? Are wedding rings replaceable? Would you ever consider changing yours? Fashion and tastes change, would that convince you? I always knew that I would replace it one day, but I’m not sure where to go from here.
