This week Kirsty has given us the prompt for I must confess of ‘What is your most treasure piece of jewellery and why’. This is a nice and easy one before I start my month of mental health on Wednesday. If you would like to share your story during the month then please get in touch.
The ring on the left is my engagement ring. Since I have put on a lot of weight it no longer fits on my finger. I don’t want to get it resized though because I know that when I am at a healthier weight it fits perfectly. It’s like my silent reminder to get back to a place where I feel healthy again.
The ring on the right is a blue topaz ring which Paul got me for my birthday the first year we were together. I didn’t wear it for a long time because he got a ridiculously small size and it didn’t even fit on my pinky finger. I got it resized so that I could wear it, but like my engagement ring, it doesn’t fit now that I have put a lot of weight on. It was the first expensive present I had gotten from a boyfriend and thankfully Paul also has beautiful taste in jewellery.
The charm at the bottom is from my best friend. She got it for my birthday last year after making the trip here for the weekend. It’s a bit hard to read in the photo but the inscription says ‘crazy’. Every time I see it in the mirror I smile and think of my awesome, beautiful and funny best friend. The reason behind the inscription is that we wouldn’t have met if we weren’t crazy. I know I’m glad that I have her in my life. She’s seen me at my worst and has still stuck around. I love her to the moon and back.
Together they make up my most treasured piece of jewellery. I’m so lucky to have a piece of jewellery that brings together so much love.
