It is not often that I audibly yelp at my computer screen when I see something pretty/fun/amazing—an under-my-breath ooh or ahh every once in a while, maybe—but this, brides, I squealed at, and so did every other lady who peered over my shoulder: It is a fresh-flower necklace made by Jennie Love of Philly’s Love ‘n Fresh Flowers!

PW Reader Ring: Neha & Jack!

Neha's "moi y toi" ring!

Neha’s “moi y toi” ring!

The couple: Neha Sachdev and Jack Herrmann from Philadelphia.

The ring: It’s a sterling silver band with a round-cut diamond and a round-cut ruby, with smaller diamonds inset in the band. I love it because it’s totally unique and exactly what I wanted.

He designed it himself, with input from my best friend. I always knew I wanted a “moi y toi” ring, which is a two-stone ring that stands for “me and you.” I love the meaning of the ring, and since red is the color of marriage in Indian culture (my parents are from India but I’m US born), I wanted a diamond and a ruby. My best friend helped pick some design ideas, but he did most of it on his own and worked with a jeweler in New York to have it custom made. It’s perfect!

I was thinking to myself, Well no, you had a teeny wedding, an announcement seems appropriate, there—and then I read the first line of the answer, from Anna Post (great-great granddaughter of Emily, of course):
