I'm not a huge jewellery fan. I wear my watch, my engagement ring and my wedding band. All the time. My engagement ring is one of my prized possessions. It was given to me on my 21st birthday, by my love, my husband. It's Edwardian, circa 1910 - just over 100 years old now. I chose it, of course, because that's the kind of girl I am! I don't like surprises, especially if there is a chance I may not appreciate the surprise! I lost it a few years ago, and it was like I'd lost part of me. The next morning I found it on the floor outside the washrooms in work. I'd been talking and drying my hands at the same time, and somehow it came off and fell onto the floor. It actually took me about 4 hours to realize I'd lost it, I feel so fortunate that I found it again.
That is a beautiful ring! I love that it is over one hundred years old... so glad you found it!ReplyDelete
That ring is so stunning and unique, I love that. And how neat that it's over 100 years old! Those diamonds absolutely glow! I don't wear much jewellery either, I MIGHT remember to for special occasions or if I'm going out to dinner but as soon as I walk through the door it's coming off. I lost my engagement ring at work once,too, just weeks after getting it. Was washing my hands in the bathroom and took it off to put lotion on. Then I picked up my things and didn't feel that it wasn't on my finger until too late, I went back and it was gone. I worked at General Electric so I posted notices about a missing engagement ring. I was VERY lucky to get it back. You know, we seem to be alot alike!ReplyDelete
Your ring is GORGEOUS!!! I would wear that one everyday too!ReplyDelete
Oh it is beautiful. I would have loved an antique ring with a story behind it too. I am SO glad you found it!!!! And you photographed it beautifully.ReplyDelete
you are so sweet! I just love that ring.ReplyDelete
I don't like surprises either! Does that make me a control freak? Apparently! LOL! That is what my kids tell me!
@ Lea: I have a nicer word for it, but yeah it boils down to 'control freak'! Haha! :)ReplyDelete
@ Gin: Yes we are alike! I'm so glad you got your back too!
It's beautiful. I'm so glad you found it!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous ring, Jill. I am partial to my own of course ;) but yours is really beautiful. I love that it's got history, too.ReplyDelete
I love your ring! I love that it has a history.ReplyDelete
Love your rings....they are timeless. You made a very clever choice! DxReplyDelete
I TOTALLY LOVE your ring!!!! I am so on the same pages as you in regards to suprises and picking it out!!!! DON'T loose it again. :) StepheReplyDelete
Your ring is stunning! I love how old it is too. To think that it has represented love and committment for 100 years for possibly many couples before it even came to you!ReplyDelete
I also love the ring box. Is it original to the ring?
gorgeous! I wish I had thought to get myself an antique ring :) I saw some in London 6 months after we got married and wondered why I didn't think of it earlier! You are a very smart girl! and an excellent photographer :)ReplyDelete
