Ring One: I bought this when I was in BC a couple years ago. A BC girl can’t resist beautiful artwork of an orca.
Ring Two: I bought this at my first ever Saskatoon Ex, and it became the first piece of jewelry that I ever wore consistently.
Rings Three: My mom and dad bought this for me while they took a mini second honeymoon years ago. I felt so grown up being given a ring!
These are two special childhood pieces. The first is a bracelet that I’ve had for longer than I can remember, and is has my initials R.T. engraved in the heart. I believe it was a gift from my mom and dad. The second is a the necklace I was given when I was a Jr Bridesmaid in my Aunt’s wedding. It is so unbelievably delicate, and even prettier in person. I will pass this on to my daughter.
Here are the wedding trio. First, is the necklace I wore to our wedding. It’s a simple cross, but had special significance because it was also a high school graduation gift from Bryan – before we even began dating. Second are my wedding and engagement rings. They fit a bit snugger now, and I’m quite allergic to them, but I still have to take them out every now and then to admire them and what they mean. The third is the ring I currently wear every day, and my Mother’s Day gift from this year. It represents not only my marriage, but my love for my daughter as well and I will pass this on to her one day too.
This trio consists of jewelry inherited from my Grandmother. These all have extreme sentimental value to me, whether or not their materials are genuine or not. The opal ring is my particular favourite.
This necklace is special because it is a souvenier from the Paul McCartney concert we went to a few years ago. A Paul McCartney concert was something I wouldn’t have dreamed that I would ever cross off my bucket list, and I am still flabbergasted by the fact that I actually saw Sir Paul perform.
And here is my jewelry box! When I was a little girl, I would sleep over at my Grandma and Poppa’s house fairly frequently, and after bathtime while Grandma blow dried and curled my hair, she would let me wind up the music box portion and watch the little people dance, while touching the little tassels and fabric. When I in my teen years, Grandma gave the jewelry box to me and it’s been a treasured item on my dresser ever since.
