Are you and your partner choosing your platinum wedding rings? If so, congratulations, this must be a very exciting time for you. This excitement may be even greater if you are a same-sex couple, who have always dreamed of tying the knot in New York.
On July 26th, 2011, the state legalised same-sex marriage, making it the largest American state to do so. Another part of this gay rights coup, is that no marriage license is required to wed in the state and as such couples from across the country can be married there.
New York is of particular historical importance within the gay rights movement, as it was where the Stonewall riots took place in 1969 (almost 42 years to the day that the city allows gay marriage).
These riots are the precedence to the modern Pride marches that are held throughout the world. At The Platinum Ring Company, we have a huge choice of both women's and men’s platinum wedding rings. Including stunning gold and platinum wedding rings, which marry the warmth of gold with the elegance of platinum.
These pieces are perfect for those of you who are looking for a twist on the conventional platinum wedding ring. Another alternative twist to a traditional ring is to choose Celtic platinum wedding rings, which have the added bonus of having numerous layers of extra symbolic meaning.
Perhaps you haven’t reached the point of choosing to get married yet, but have been inspired by the couples getting married in New York.
Then a Platinum engagement ring could be the perfect choice to show your partner how much you care. While many feel that civil ceremonies have lost their appeal in the uk, who could fail to be reminded of the potency of the changes in New York, after seeing the picture of 76 year Phyllis Siegal marrying 84 year old Connie Koplov, after being together for 23 years.
Why not take the time to show the one that you love how much they mean to you, by proposing with a platinum engagement ring from the Platinum Ring Company.
