He had the best wedding band ever. Pure silver, the size of a huge hardware nut. It was square-- not round. Probably three-quarters of an inch wide. He mentioned the name of the silversmith, but it didn’t register anything to me. His wife has a matching ring, not as big, or square but clearly made to belong.

I’ve got a thing about rings.

Where they come from, what they mean, their symbolism. Everyone has a story about each ring. Engagement rings especially. What woman doesn’t know exactly where she was, how she felt, what she wore and how he proposed?
