cables, ties.

Rings by Ambre France

Did I ever tell you that my first engagement ring was a cable tie? It was.

Black, plastic, B&Q.

These rings by Ambre France are stirring up all sorts of nostalgia.

*'first' as in 'the first ring that cemented my engagement to The Boy'. Not 'first' as in 'the first of my many, many engagements.'


  1. These make me say yes.

  2. These are great! My first engagement ring was a twisty tie from a bag in the kitchen.

  3. Hahaha I love the footnote!

  4. so creative and so beautiful!

  5. ha that's adorable. who needs diamonds when you have true love?

  6. Oh no, I thought you were going to say you were a heartbreaker extraordinaire!

  7. Aaaahhhh.... My big brother got married this last weekend, and his (now) wife showed us the cable tie he proposed with! It was always a joke between them, and when he popped the question on top of the Eiffel Tower and opened the ring box, it was a white cable tie! (he had the real ring on his pinky)

  8. I love the cable tie engagement ring!

    And thank you so much for your comment to my post on APW. I have been following you here for awhile and am a bad commenter, but I wanted to say how much I am enjoying the tales of your two beauties.
