I've always liked claddaghs, as well. Hope you find something that works, and congratulations!


I personally don't like rings. I recently pulled mine and my partner's off our fingers because they were hurting me when we held hands and I was sick of that. And apparently fingers change size- so the randomness of whether or not the ring would fit was bugging me, too. We'd been thinking about trying to find a better alternative already, because neither of us were happy with how the rings were working out.
So, we're looking for alternatives for that.

We're all getting matching tattoos as well. Maybe you get tattoos of rings? Food for though.

I read this thread to the rest of my triad and we were thinking about have rings specially made out of Tungsten (as that is the only ring hubby will wear to work) with three trillium cut stones. Each stone is one of our birthstones. So it will be a ring completely dripping with symbolism for us. The trillium cut because we are a triad. The birthstones are straight forward, each one representing each of us and the ring is our commitment to our relationship to each other. I drew a very sad picture of it but you'll get the idea.

Tungsten is even better than platinum as it is completely scratch resistant and harder to break. You just have to be sized properly to get it made for you correctly.

We are also considering that as well. Just not a whole lot of thought has gone into what we would get and were we would put it.

I like that ring, we have discussed the Claddagh with a stone. one color for my primary and his secondary and a different color for me and my secondary. Just have not found the right ones yet, still looking.

Hey there and Congratulations!!! When my husband and I found a woman we wanted to include into our family and decided to ask her to join us as a sister wife we did the ring search as well. We couldn't decide on one simple design so after a search at different jewelry stores and almost giving up we were in Wal-Mart one day and found what we thought was the perfect ring....a titanium ring that says Always and Forever on the outside in a very intricate pattern. We thought that about summed up our feelings for each other as well as the woman we had chosen to become a part of us. I know, it is a Wal-Mart ring but it honestly summed up all our feelings so we chose it!! Just a suggestion, sometimes we find what we are looking for in the most unlikely of places.

The engagement ring my husband bought for me was purchased online. It cost 20 bucks. But it has a triskele pattern and a moonstone in the center which is what I really wanted (never been into big diamonds or that such). It is not the price tag that makes it special, it's the sentiment behind it.

I'd be interested to know (and sorry, this is a little off topic...) how long people have been together before considering marriage or any kind of symbology such as a ring to connect you... ?

Mono is much more of a "lets do it now" type whereas I need everyone to feel comfortable.... I have a lot of concern for those in my life being fully aware that I am serious and making a commitment from a place of certainty that only comes from having lived life together for a time. When I got married to my husband we did it the same way. Our ceremony was far from traditional and we wrote our own contract (which included many aspects of our poly nature I might add!). We didn't get married legally on our day.... we actually secretly married a couple of months before at someones house after work one day. We invited a couple of friends to witness as they got off work at the same time. It was more like the inconvenience of taking our taxes to an accountant than anything else. Anyway, I would be surprised if it was much different with Mono.... the ceremony is about the love, bonding and commitment more than the legality in my mind and under these kind of circumstances and I am so glad that I might get to do it like that again. Skip the taking the tax stuff to an accountant part...

Just to stay on topic....I have started wearing my wedding band on my other hand since meeting mono... practically, because I lost 30 lbs this year and it doesn't fit my less dominate hand any more. I realize however that this is also an interesting circumstance.

I think I would want to wear what I pick and mono could wear whatever he picks. He already has a tattooed wedding band on his finger that he had some writing added too recently to respectfully mark the end of his marriage, but he has said that he would add more to signify our love when the time comes. He has already tattooed himself with a sleeve on his left arm of intertwined trees, sky and and our sun sign symbols merged together.... he can tell more if he wants on what that means to him.....

We have spoken about getting a Tattoo.. No final decission on the design yet. But it has been discussed. I wear my wedding rings as normal, because that commitment hasnt changed. I like the idea of a right hand ring too.
