Cheap To Marry.
I’ve never understood the significance of a wedding band. To me, the exchange of rings is less symbolic than the vows you make to the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. A ring is an accessory, easily removable. Words written, uttered, remembered, are more significant and real. Yes, it’s true. I’m cheap to marry.
But with this ring…
Description from Spoon & Tamago:
“The Tokyo-based gallery deux poissons, 1 of only 3 galleries in all of Japan who specialize in jewelry, recently announced that they had enlisted Torafu Architects to design their latest piece. The young architecture duo, who have no experience designing jewelry, managed to leverage their immense knowledge of material to design a ring that poetically captures the essence of the bond that is formed between two people who decide to spend the rest of their lives together.
But don’t call it a timepiece. “Gold wedding ring” is crafted from 18k-gold which is then coated with a thin layer of silver. As time passes the silver wears away to reveal the gold. It’s a poetic piece that visualizes the time shared between two people.
Depending on which ring you choose – round (52,500 – 94,500 yen) or square (47,250 – 57,750 yen) – the gold is revealed in different ways.”
Such a sucker for these things. I’m now just approximately SGD1000 more expensive to marry.
