Celebrating a Love Like No Other

James Avery Jewelry

A love like no other!  My love story is quite a journey that would take a complete manuscript to get you to where we are today. I met the love of my life over 28 years ago, and both of us can honestly say it was love at first sight although neither one of us knew the other was watching.

A Love Like No Other

My husband and I were in college and full of life.  The first time I saw this mysterious tall, dark-haired individual I was captivated by him.  There was just something about him that intrigued me, and I knew he was going to be the one if I could figure out a way to get closer to him.  He describes the day he saw me pull up in my red Pontiac Firebird.  The girl that exited the car was wearing a dress and seemed to be sure of herself.  He continued to watch me from a distance as I headed to my apartment where I proceeded to open the balcony doors.  Not being able to take his gaze from me, he watched as I danced around the living room to Widespread Panic.  He recalls being mesmerized and deciding that I was the one.

This past year my husband and I celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary.  Some people believed that our love story would not endure through the trials of life, and to be honest with you, there were times when we both felt this way.  We could have never imagined where our journey could take us, and today we are enjoying a newly discovered passion for one another.

Recently I had the opportunity to visit James Avery, an artisan jewelry store with locations across the United States.  With a variety of new items for Valentine’s Day, I was certain that they would have the perfect piece that would tell our love story.   After all, James Avery specializes in creating pieces that beautifully capture the special moments in our lives.

Wedding Bands

Our love is a beautiful thing and to celebrate a love like no other, I had to find just the right piece.   Something that truly tells the story of our love.  As I walked around and looked at the beautiful pieces throughout the store, I fell in love over and over.  There are so many pieces that beautifully capture those moments we have shared, but once I saw the Classic Smooth with Titanium Band, I knew I had found the piece.

Titanium is a lustrous silver color metal that is light in weight and stronger than steel.  It is corrosion-resistant and durable.  In many ways, titanium perfectly describes my marriage.  The corrosion that has tried to tear us apart over the years has been no match for the strength of our love for one another.  This sleek titanium band beautifully represents how we have come full circle.

When we first fell in love, we were completely head over heels for one another.  We wanted to spend every waking moment together.  We just couldn’t get enough of one another.    As the years slowly ticked by, that excitement that we once felt for one another faded to the back as we became comfortable with one another.   We got caught up in chasing after our careers and dreams.  It seemed as if we were just going through the motions day after day as we raised our family.

Little did we know that our lives would be forever changed four years ago when I was in a head-on collision.  That fateful day in July forever changed how we would interact with one another.  No longer would we just go through the motions day after day and take one another for granted.  Life could change in the blink of an eye, and we realized just how precious our lives and marriage was.

When I look at this titanium band, I can’t help but think about how our marriage is a love like no other.  It is a promise that we made over 25 years ago to lovehonor and cherish one another until death do us part.

    My love story is me working as a waitress and my husband the manager at the same restaurant. The second time I looked at him, I knew he was the one.

    I love this! My love story is convoluted and filled with much drama, but this is such a great reminder to focus on the one you're with.
  3. Nancy Smith says
    My love story started when I sold my now husband a used book the first week we were in college. I've never thought about it but maybe that's why I love books so much also :) Great post and beautiful symbols of love in these pieces.

    What beautiful jewelry! I can't even say I could choose a favorite. Such a great love story. I met my husband in December of 94 and we were married September 95. I am happy to say we are still together after such a short dating time. Not sure many would have thought we would last.
