My Jewellery Box – Rubies and Diamonds Week 21

There’s a really funny story that goes with this necklace.  I love this ruby necklace, it is my birthstone and of course I love diamonds.  It was ordered special for a customer, but when it came in they did not like the size of the pendant. I put in the case to sell, but always thought about buying it myself.

My girlfriend came into the store and I showed it to her and ask her opinion.  She really liked it as well and thought that I should buy it.  I hummed and hummed about it.  A customer came into the store to look for something for his daughter, and asked what my favorite piece was.  I showed him the ruby pendant, and he bought it, I wrapped it all up and away it went.  It was very sad to see it go, but I was happy that I no longer had to think about buying it.

About 8 months later my birthday arrived.  My husband (yes, him again!) handed me my birthday gift.  I was a little surprised to see it in the Harmony gift wrap, and it looked like something that I had wrapped.  When I opened it, to my astonishment, it was the beautiful ruby and diamond necklace that I never bought!  It is not very often that I get as surprised as I was on that birthday, I can usually tell what he is going to buy me, but not this time!

It’s the perfect size for me and so pretty.  The pendant and chain are white gold. Something a little different for me, as I usually wear yellow gold.  I wear this necklace for special occasions and every birthday.  I’m very blessed to have such a wonderful and thoughtful husband.  There are a few more necklaces to go, then we start the earrings, so stay tuned.
