When I excitedly called the Glossy Grandparents to tell them my good news (that I was engaged) Nana Gloss said that she would like us to have a bar of platinum that Grampa Gloss had bought for her some time ago.
Grampa Gloss had bought with the intention of designing a ring for her, but she found a 'pre-made' one she liked in the meantime and the platinum has just been hanging out in their house for awhile. She wanted to offer it to Mr. Gloss to have my engagement ring made, but was a little to late as he had already had my perfect ring made - so now we are planning to use it for our wedding bands! I'm so happy to be able to incorporate something of theirs into a ring that I will be able to cherish forever!
