A gem I can't live without

Monday, June 25, 2012

We all have that one special piece of jewelry that we can't live without: we feel naked when we forget to put it on in the morning and store it carefully when we aren't wearing it.

For me, my gold and opal ring is something I never take off. No one else has a ring like this: it's unique design and color combo is something you don't often see. I'm constantly getting compliments when people spot my ring, and when I tell them it's been passed down through my family, they love it even more.

I like to think of this ring as a family heirloom. My grandma purchased it for my mom when she was a teenager, and when I turned 13, my mom gave it to me. I've worn it ever since (7 years...wow!). I hope one day to pass it on to my daughter once she enters her teenage years!

Whenever I look at my ring, I think about the strength, wisdom, and love that comes from all the women in my family. They are my role models and inspirations, and I hope one day to be as accomplished as them.

What's your favorite piece of jewelry? What special meaning does it have for you?
