Editor’s Note: This post is sponsored as MiaDonna kindly sent me a complimentary men’s wedding band in exchange for writing about the company and sharing on my social media accounts. All editorial and opinions are my own.
I’m so happy to share my personal shopping experience with MiaDonna, an Oregon company specializing in ethical engagement rings and lab-grown diamond jewelry. First, let me fill you in on the event that prompted our unexpected ring shopping. Earlier this summer, while boating with my husband’s family, J spent the afternoon tubing and swimming and having a blast. Later, as we were pulling up to the dock, I noticed my husband had a funny look on his face as he was holding his ring finger. Sadly, the ring I gave him almost 10 years ago on our wedding day had slipped off while he was in the water and was now gone.
While we hadn’t planned on ever going shopping for a new mens’ band, the process this summer actually turned out to be more fun and interesting than we ever anticipated. We looked around locally at different styles but when MiaDonna reached out to me around the same time, I really liked learning that their rings are handcrafted in the U.S.A. using recycled precious metals, lab-grown gemstones, and lab-grown diamonds. I think it’s so neat to know that my husband’s new ring from MiaDonna is recycled from possible other love stories and memories. It’s also reassuring to know that MiaDonna’s fine jewelry is guaranteed conflict-free and crafted without negatively impacting communities or our environment.
Since the ring I gave my husband 10 years ago was a style that I chose, I asked J to decide on the style and details this time around. He ended up choosing the Dune Men’s Wedding Band in 14k white gold with a high polish and in the 6mm width. It’s simple and classic and just perfect:
I knew I wanted to include a little surprise for J so I chose a special verse of scripture and asked the folks at MiaDonna if they could engrave it along the inside of the ring. I wasn’t sure if the scripture would fit as it was rather long but, amazingly, it fit perfectly all the way around and reads: “I found him whom my soul loves. I held him, and would not let him go. Song of Solomon 3:4.”
Both my husband and I have been thoroughly impressed with both the service and quality from MiaDonna and you can bet the next time my husband sets foot in the water, he won’t be wearing his ring because we definitely don’t want to lose this beauty.
