I have to say that this is a lot of fun for me. I don’t think that I have really taken a good look at my jewellery in a long time. The memories this process is bring back to me at times is sad, and others very happy.
The next ring to come out of my jewellery box is the very first ring that I bought at a pawn shop in Florida. I thought the design was beautiful and I have always loved sapphires. The ring is quite old looking. At the time I bought it, the salesman told me a little story to go with it. He said ” this ring is called the stepping stones of life” the small stone on the end was to represent birth, the second largest stone was our early years of life, the large center stone was to be our journey in full bloom, then as we age, again the second largest stone was our old age with the second small stone on the other side is to represent the last leg of our journey. I think the story meant more to me then the ring, but I have to say everytime I look at the ring, I will always remember the story. I am not sure that I would take apart this ring to make something new. I will have to wait and see on this one.
