We were at dinner for the joint birthday event, and apparently everyone knew but me. He had 5 gifts wrapped and asked me to open them in a certain order and see if I could figure out the theme. The first gift was a sixpence that was made into a necklace; the second gift was a handkerchief embroidered with my name and birthday in blue; the third was a shirt of his I always wear to sleep in; the fourth was my mom’s engagement ring from my dad; and the fifth was a new center stone and a promise to design a ring together. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence for my shoe. It was so sweet, thoughtful, and creative. He really knocked it out of the park!
Here is a pic from of my mom’s ring and the new center stone. The new stone is a moissanite that is equivalent to 1.5 carats.
