New husbands: watch your wedding band when it gets cold!
Women already know, when the weather gets cold, your fingers contract. So right now as the cold sets in, mind your wedding band! If you feel your wedding ring sliding around on your finger, you might decide to leave it home or put it in your pocket for safe keeping—because that is a lot better than losing it! Trust me.
Last year in July I had the honor of standing at the proverbial altar to recite vows to my beautiful bride. I wondered how I would feel about wearing that wedding band. Well it did not take me long to really like it. In fact, I absolutely loved wearing my new white gold wedding band all over. There was something about it that reminded me that I was in a new place in my life, I loved how it looked, and most of all, it reminded me of the unbroken bond that I had joined in with my beautiful bride. (Yeah, that's right, I am a romantic, what can I say :)
Needless to say I was devastated that first really cold day of December when I made a late trip to Whole Foods to come back and realize my ring was missing. It was awful. I had never been so torn up about losing something in my life. I held out hope for a few months that it would show up before I ordered a replacement. (Aside from the emotional trauma, who wants to shell out several hundred dollars on a new one!) Incidentally, in April or May this year, my wife found it curiously behind the chair in our apartment. It was an amazing relief; now I have two, the second on a quarter size smaller.
Long story short, if you don't want to go through all that, please do yourself a favor and watch out for that wedding band sliding around, and if it does, don't hesitate to go get it resized with your local jeweler. It is going to be with you forever, so best take care.
