It’s an Endless Wedding!
Close readers of ES noticed that gansie went and dropped the f-bomb in her post yesterday. No, not the f-bomb she uses every day. The other one — fiancé. Eek!
Yes, it’s true, our founding editor is engaged to the blogger formerly known as 80 proof! And since I think the ring looks like caviar, it’s officially fit for inclusion as a topic on this food blog. For a more nuanced expert analysis, we turn to longtime ES commenter Mariah Carey:
Bennett gave this ring to Stef with the explanation that it’s not necessarily an “engagement ring.” Rather, it’s the ring he’s giving her while asking her to spend the rest of her life with him. “Wear it all the time, don’t wear it all the time, wear other rings as well…”
So fucking cool.
Congrats 80p and gansie!
Feel free to leave catering suggestions, gift ideas and foodie-friendly baby names in the comments.
Congratulations to you both!!!
Formerly known as 80P and now known as Mr. Gansie?
Excited!. What nail polish are you pairing with that lovely ring.(;
I think it looks like a hedgeghog!! 😀 awesome ring.
Ahhh! Congratulations! I’m very happy for you both. WHAT stones/material is the ring made out of, I must know!
IS THAT A REAL RING?? OR IS IT ACTUALLY CAVIAR?? IT LOOKS REALLY BEAUTIFUL. WHERE DID YOU OR HE GET IT FROM? DO YOU HAVE OTHER PHOTO’S OF IT SO WE CAN SEE IT REALLY WELL FROM DIFFERENT ANGLES?
PLEASE POST AND ANSWER. THANKS
Wow guys !!!
I (and I’m sure my fiance) am humbled by your all-caps response to my ring. I’m so glad you like it! I adore it.
It’s a real ring (not caviar) by designer Matthew Campbell Laurenza.
I honestly don’t have any other photos of the ring, and haven’t been able to find it online, but if we do another photo shoot, I’ll be sure to let you know.
Thanks again for your enthusiasm.
@Emily. Thank you! And I’ve gotten conflicted reports of the exact stone (I’m looking into it!) but it might be black sapphires.
Congrats Stef! Endless Simmer is still part of my recess-boredom surfing and I was so delighted to read the good news, today. Wishin’ you all the best!!!
So I was thinking beyond sporting it as a caviar ring, you can go goth. Paint your nails red and tell everyone it is a spider’s egg sack. How awesome that 80p just provided you with a few more styles witih one kick ass ring.
Now in all seriousness-congrats to you both! I LOVE the ring. Very unique.
