Engaged two weeks now!! He proposed on our 5 year anniversary. As he was placing onto my finger, he told me this story.
In 1955, his grandfather worked two part time jobs; one before school as a paper boy and one after school as a milk man. His grandmother passed it to my fiance’s father, who’s wife passed it onto us. She said to me, “This is a symbol of us welcoming you into our family.”
It means so much to me. My parents were never married, and both sets of grandparents are divorced. I never believed that love could last forever. Now I can’t ever see us being apart. 🙂
It’s nothing fancy, but it means the world to me. We will get our own set in a few years when we are comfortable. Then pass it on to our child 🙂
I am so happy.

Exquisite! Don’t be so sure you’ll EVER be ready to part with it, even to your own child- you may find that your love for this ring, unique both in history and appearance, will just continue to grow!

I love it! I agree with ann.reid.9277. I bet you wear this for as long as you live. Then leave it to your child. It’s just such a precious and beautiful ring.

ann.reid.9277: That was my first thought! My soon to be Mother-In-Law said that it took her 10 years before she got her own set, and that she still wore it along with her new one for another 5 before finally taking it off and putting it away.
