No, we didn't sell them at a pawn shop.
Although I did try to tell my mom that, (as a joke, you see,) but she didn't think it was very funny.
Apparently I need to work on the timing of my humor. We are, after all, jobless, and have just sold one of our cars.
No, instead, Ian and I went to our jewelers and sent our rings in to be replated. They are white gold, so they can be re dipped and look as good as new, sans scratches, dullness, and discoloration. We have a great warantee/service package so this didn't cost us a dime.
In one to two weeks, we'll have our rings back.
But for now, we are ringless.
And it feels weird.
