Broken Promises Coalition Sees Cancer Survivor’s Wife Gesture As Testament to Wedding Ring Meaning
Cancer survivor's wife leaves wedding ring to honor husband and marriage tradition.
Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) June 25, 2012
According to a WFSB report from June 21, 2012, an anonymous donor left a diamond engagement ring along with a wedding ring in the chapel at St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport, Conn. on Wednesday, June 13, 2012. The rings were attached to a note written on a piece of bandage wrapper that read, "I would like to donate this ring to cancer patients. I had it appraised. My ring is worth $3,300. Thanks." It was signed "Cancer Survivor's wife."
Broken Promises, a coalition dedicated to warning the public about the misinformation often provided by manufacturers of tungsten carbide wedding rings, points to this story as yet another example of how people value and honor their wedding ring in personal and unique ways, and deserve to have a ring that will endure.
“Stories like this remind us all of why our wedding rings are so important, why there is so much meaning in the band itself and that this particular piece of jewelry holds a value like no other. I am convinced that this story touches so many not because of the monetary value of the ring, but because we all believe in the sentimental value of what this woman offered up by offering her wedding rings, not just an item of expensive jewelry,” said Clay Darrohn. “It is why all bridal jewelry needs to be held to a hire standard and needs to be made properly with adequate materials that endure.”
Members of the Broken Promises coalition believe that wedding rings don’t just possess a monetary value, but also a sentimental one and thus have dedicated themselves to raising awareness for product integrity in this market. Tungsten carbide is a brittle compound that, when fatigued from daily use, can break or shatter – a fact most brides and grooms are unaware of. Broken Promises believes that the public has a right to know this information before they even consider purchasing a tungsten ring so that they can carry with them their entire lives the same ring in which they have blessed and exchange vows with.
Broken Promises is a grassroots consumer advocacy group dedicated to raising awareness about misleading information regarding tungsten carbide wedding rings. Started in April of 2012, Broken Promises is a group of concerned consumers dedicated to sharing information about the brittle nature of tungsten rings to brides and grooms to-be.
